Bottle. Dark brown body (not "pitch black" or even just black), medium head. Aroma has coffee roast and fruity hops. Sweet hoppy taste with a light and smooth roast. ABV is totally covered. A simple but good beer.

MichaelAwesome (3641) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2014
Had high hopes in but it ended in a slight disappointment. Only a few moments of hops combined with a bit of coffee and quite no taste in the end. Just another average brew.

McTapps (3649) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with low unsteady head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and roasted spruce / pine. Taste of hops, malt, torf, coffee, spices and spruce. Quite thin-bodied and with a thin character. Expected more.

Gorm (1103) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2014
Svart farve med litt beige skum. Lukt av røstet malt, sjokolade, og humle. Smak av røstet malt, sjokolade, kaffe og noe grapefrukt. Fyldig og fruktig. Melkebaren.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Pitch black (unsurprisingly), white head; hoppy aroma; taste is a deliciously moreish combination of tangy exotic fruit, resinous hops, toasted malt and coffee; big mouthfeel and long lasting dry finish; this pushed all the right buttons; I really really wanted another.

Brandman (2059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Black body, light brown head. Aroma has roasted malt, chocolate and resiny and medicinal hoppy notes. Flavour is more intense. Quite remarkable bitterness. Nice black IPA.
