Lives up to its name. Lots of roast in the aroma. Good balance albeit on the carmel side. Nice roasty, rye and coffee in the middle and end. Enjoyable sipper.

bottle. Near black with small head. Lots of roasted malt and rye. Medium hops. There’s a lot going on in a normal black IPA, and in this case, I find that the rye just muddies things up even more. Ok, but far from my favorite.

För att vara en black ipa så lyfter denna öl. Fina toner chocolat o citrushumle toner. Mycket maltsmak o liten beska. En bra black ipa.

Pours a dark mahogany color with about half a finger of light brown head. looks and smells appealing during the pour. the aroma is of deep dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, very slight dark fruit character. great hop aroma as well. the taste is great on this one, wonderful dark roasted backbone with a well balanced addition of hops. other flavors are chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. overall, i was very pleased with this beer, lots of well balanced flavors that were easy to pick up, and not one flavor overpowered another, great brew!
