Bottle with some age on it. Is more comparable to a stout than a black IPA now. Pitch black, roasted malt, belgian yeast, bitter pine hoppiness and light grapefruit in the finish. Would love to try this fresh one day.

After about 9 months of life, the hops have yielded to something more roast forward, yeast and malt second and third, respectively. Getting hops on the finish but imagining the best ratings were when fresh. Liked the bitter chocolate finish. Thanks Johnsense.

Great beer, but lacks the hop notes to be an Imp IPA. As an Imp stout it tastes great, with loads of sweet chocolate.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 Dark (almost black) with offwhite lingering head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malts, coffee, some hops, dark fruits. It starts sweet, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, chocolate. Then it evolves in a hopbitter, light fruity (citrus), somewhat sweet finish. I really like this one

Slightly reddish dark brown beer with a large-bubbled, dense and long-lasting blonde head. Sweet chocolaty and roasty tiramisu-kind of aroma with hints of alcohol. The tiramisu dominates the taste as well with a rather light body and some alcohol. The finish has strong but short bitterness Would have expected a thicker body to compensate the sweetness.

Bottled. Dark brown color, short off-white head. Aroma of biscuit, bit of roast, fruity hops of grapefruit and pine, moderate spicy belgian yeast. Bit sweet in taste, medium bitter. Quite nice balance between the sweetness of the malts and the bitter and fruitiness If the hops. Just a bit more roast separates it from their magma. Good beer.
