rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken. Dark brown color, I guess almost black. Way too toasty in both aroma and flavor. Hop flavor is practically not there due to the dark malts. Bitterness is big and adequate. This is one of those black ipas that really tastes like a foreign stout with less sweetness. The beer is good but it is not a black ipa.

Black body, medium head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, citrus, light roasted malt, smoke. Flavours of citrus, orange, roasted malt. Medium body and carbo. Roasted coffee finish, good bitterness. Good but not fresh so I guess I lost some hoppy notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into snifter. Black with dark brown highlights and small beige head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and a little lacing. Taste is dark malt, herbal hops, and bitter hops.

colui72 (490) - HONG KONG - DEC 11, 2015
Dark brown nearly black, with a medium beige head. Aroma is floral, hoppy and fruity, some coffee. Taste goes very complex, straight bitter-tart, coffee, grapefruit, very hoppy, some roasted malts. A great ale.

sonotono (222) - torino, ITALY - NOV 5, 2015
Molto scura, con riflessi rossastri, schiuma marrone chiaro. Profumo intenso, floreale, fruttato, erbaceo, agrumato, pompelmo, frutta tropicale, leggero tostato. Sapore subito amaro, corposa, viscosa, nota maltata e grande amaro finale sui toni agrumati, pompelmo.

Di colore mogano quasi rossa con una bella schiuma compatta e persistente color cappuccino. Al naso sento gli agrumi. Al palato è aroma di caffè e agrumi. Bell’equilibrio.

Color marrone scuro con una densa schiuma beige. Al naso malti tostati e agrumi. Al palato caffè, cacao, con un finale luppolato e agrumato, forse di pompelmo.

brandon31g (25) - HONG KONG - OCT 20, 2015
Pours a black colour topped with very thick beige head providing some lacing. Aroma delivers citrus, roastiness, coffee and a few spice. The mixture reminds me of Chenpi (dried tangerine peel). As a black IPA, it has a light mouthfeel comparing with most stout. Light to medium body. Taste contains tartness of grapefruit, bitterness between grapefruit and coffee bean and slight grassiness. Toasty bitterness on finishing.

Patjeadam (143) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle @ home. What an amazing black ipa, or should I say black cascadian ale. First aroma is underwhelming with the first taste. Chocolate, creamy coffee, fruits, flowers, roasted malts, sweet caramel. Incredibly good balance. One of the best I had in the black ipa corner. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Fles gekocht @De Bierkoning. Mijn 1e Toccalmatto (Smoking Trojka collab met Jopen en Grateful Deaf niet meegerekend). Een mooi zwart bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aromas van gebrande mout, hop, fruit. De smaak is bitter, hoppig, donker, fruitig. In de nasmaak proef je de gebrande mout met de bitterheid van de hop. Heerlijke black IPA.
