tiong (4736) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

BBE 26 May 2014 - Pours pitch black with a bubbly white head. Aroma of grainy malts, some hints of roastiness and fruits. Taste is fruity, quite salty and mildly roasty with some hints of licorice, grassy hops and grainy malts. Finish is salty, hoppy and fruity with some mild roastiness and notes of licorice. Not your typical black IPA, but still quite tasty.

Idiosynkrasie (4917) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear dark brown colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Excellent hop aroma, lots of grapefruit, blood orange, pine. Taste is initially minimally sweet dark malty, some chocolate, a touch of orange, later bitter hoppy, in the last third again slightly more malty and chocolately; lasting herbal, bitter hoppy finish, smooth palate.

johndoughty (4278) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
Bottle. Black with some hopiness. Medium body and slightly floral. Reminded me of a cross between an IPA and a stout as I still struggle with the concept of a dark IPA. Liked it.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, yeast and grass. Flavour of roasted malts, strong dough-like yeastiness, grassy hops, leather, salt and sweetish fruits. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a salty, grassy and roasty finish. Alcohol comes through. Rather bland for a Black IPA and lacks bitterness.

olio (7523) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
33 cl bottle. BBE 26.05.2014.
Pours pitch black color with a large and thick off-white head. Aroma of mandarin, roasted malts, some pine needles, hops, some licorice notes and caramel. Flavor has quite a lot salty licorice, mild roasted malts, resiny hops, orange, faint grassy notes and some lemon. Quite slick, bitter and malty palate with a burnt finish. Very heavy mouth feel. A tad too salty but otherwise very good black IPA. Better than the standard Conqueror.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2013
Oct 2012 - Roasted barley imparts smokiness. I suppose it is a bit more hoppy than your average porter though overall. I’ve had better black IPAs for sure, but there’s nothing wrong with this.

prawlie (1283) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Half pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Black, almost no head. Well hopped, quite bitter and smooth. Very dry finish. Decent hoppy aroma. Reasonable but a bit overdone with the hops.
