Looks.. Very dark mahogany red tinge, slightly tan sml-med head. Smells.. Roasty malts, some chocolate caramel and a slight hint of the hops. Tastes..semi sweet malts before some fruit from the hops, chocolate and bitterness to finish. Good.

maekchu (3400) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya. Medium-strength coffee, caramel, and yeasty nose. Clear translucent brown. Big earthy maltiness in initial / coffee, chocolate / some herbal notes from the hopping. Thin-medium body. Very good stuff. The roast malt and hop balance is great. Maybe a touch light for the style (even the brewers seem to be unsure about the style), but so tasty.

Pours a rich dark brown. While the nose was a little stunted the flavours in the mouth are abundant. Hints a cocoa supplement a superbly hopped offer from YB.

skortila (5240) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2014
On tap @ Pomeroy. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has roasty malts and citric hops. Black coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is light roasty, has some smooth caramellic sweetness, bit chocolate and with a strong fruity hoppy bitterness. Well made IPA-stout blend.

ABUSEDGOAT (2566) - California, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Black pour, moderate tan head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is roasty with higher than normal hop notes - tropical and grassy. However roasted malts with chocolate dominate. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, pretty nice.

mansquito (5208) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Tria Rittenhouse, Philadelphia tap: Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, some light citrus. Taste is a pretty good combination of hops and porter chocolateness. Nice roasted malts flavors. I think this was rather well-balanced.

Brodies_Best (266) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 25, 2013
330 ml bottle pours black with tan head and slow steady stream of carbonation. Aroma is sweet of malt, floral hops and alcohol. Initial taste is calm and then the burnt malt well balanced with alcohol. Medium to full body with bitter dry aftertaste.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Poured into my DFH IPA glass. Pours a clear, dark brown, red color. Not quite black, not quite as black as neither most american black IPAs nor most american porters, not a big deal, though. Good thin half-inch tan head, with good retention. Leaves great, thicker swaths of lace. Looks excellent. Medium body. Smooth crisp light carbonation, lightly slick finish. Very easy to drink. Good roasty malt, some bitter dark chocolate, bigger coffee aromas. Good earthy hop, light citrus. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet. Very enjoyable hoppy porter / black IPA.
