COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A juxtaposition of styles: fresh and hoppy, yet dark and rich. Mindbendingly delicious. NZ & rest of the world brewed at Invercargill Brewery. UK & Europe brewed at Brewdog, Aberdeenshire.

Bootlegger007 (92) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
Dark brown almost black with a small off white head, aromas of roasted, coffee, chocolate & toffee, had bourbon flavours leaving a mild bitter aftertaste, very good, I would easily get this again.

M_Sack (598) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. Deep black with an attractive cappuccino head and heavy lacing. Although muted, typical IPA aromas of grapefruit and pine with a deep roasty overtone. Delicious pine flavours with restrained bitterness that creeps through the beer and avoids any oiliness. A long mid to end palate of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and just a lick of wood smoke. Minimal carbonation. Fantastic beer.

HKdIPA (633) - HONG KONG - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from Soho Wine at home. Dark black pour, very thin tan head with some lacing. Not much aroma at all. Taste is roasted, then a bit soapy, with a lot of bitterness. Hard to place - but not in a good way. Sort of thin, sort of bitter, sort of roasty. Not bad but disappointing. Wouldn't get again.

2013 single batch. pot black in colour, lacing of head around the rim, the rest of it disappeared before I could sit down to look at it. aromas of smoky, toasty, toffee, coffee, chocolate. First taste, 4/10 for carbonation level (10 being apollo 13). light bitters. oily.

Bottle. The look is dark, tan head, and black in color. The smell is burnt malts, pine, hops, fruit, and burnt. The taste is burnt, malt, heavy roast, hops, and pine.

CacheManyHose (555) - HONG KONG - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Smells of nutty gently roasted malt, bit of cola, faint sweet syrup. Tastes sweet and fizzy, slight spice, not much depth. Bitter finish. Body on the thin side but with sharp carbonation. Love the name! But a trifle disappointing - not really reminiscent of either an IPA or a porter despite being somewhat bitter and roasted. Not much to the taste.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2014
(bottle - 330 ml) Dark brown pour with a fluffy tan head. Floral and peppery hop aroma sitting atop a light and roasted malt and chocolate blend. Flavor is hops and bitter roasted hops without any of the sweetness I thought I might get. Some sweet malts come up at the end but give way to a bitter finish.

Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2014
Aroma of burnt wood, ash, roasted coffee and dark malts. Even a splash of vegemite which might puzzle the brewer. Bitterness but very nice in the mouthfeel and solid end. Great winter brewski. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
