COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pinch of black malt and a splash of roasted barley break this IPA apart from tradition, Cascadian Dark. Join the shady revolution.

Pours as dark as a good stout but the first smell gives it away. Hoppy and bitter my old friend IPA greets my lips with a solid effort from widmer bros on this black IPA. Nice, but not top-tier .

Simonsen (576) - NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Flaske medbrakt av esp0r. Svart farge, som navnet tilsier. Beige skumtopp. Medium karbonert. Smaker kaffe,karamell, mørkbrent malt, furunål og noter av mørke bær. Ganske god, men flasken er desverre snart ett år gammel og har nok mistet mye aroma

Braastad (367) - FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Almost pitch black as the name says. Aroma of fruity hops, roasted malts, coffee. Flavor is also roasted with very little hop notes.

Black pour. Light tan head. Little bit of lacing. Nice aroma of oranges. Taste is sweet orange and a slight bitter peel. Little bitterness in the back.

Wolfbass (882) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 29, 2014
Molto caffettosa, direi soprattutto nel finale decisamente tra il tostato e l’amaro pungente, non male. Parte ipa un pò sottotono.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 27, 2014
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.

angelkostvo (556) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 24, 2014
Very dark brown colour, big beige hear. Aroma of roasted barley, hops, a bit metalic. Taste is lifht sweet and just bit bitter. Light to medium body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation. I was expecting more

MichaelAwesome (3558) - 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 (3558) - 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.
