Aroma of fruit and chocolate. Pours a deep black with a robust, mostly lasting, tan head and moderate lacing. The taste is dark fruit, toasted malts, with hoppy bitter finish. Medium baby and medium body. Overall, an enjoyable hoppy porter.

Poured dark brown with tan foamy head. Medium to full body, rich malts and hop finish, good Black IPA more than a Porter

A very good black IPA. Tends to the coffee side of the taste spectrum but I prefer that to the vanilla/chocolate of a lot of stouts. Definitely worth a taste - or two!

Smells kinda like a hoppy black. Tan head and black body. Taste has a caramel hint but strong coffee and earthy after taste. Kinda has a tingle at the very end. Like it. Not Love it, but pretty Likeable.

Bottled0,33L. Dark deep black color, incredible foamy nut.head of long long persistance. Balsamic roasty malt nose, very cooffe aroma, smoked resind and braced cortex. Something bitter caramel notes, very hardly to dry for a porter, much round, solid, alcoholic. Good final of long duration.

It's hard to name it Black IPA, seems a fairly decent porter. It's not hoppy as one would expect, very smooth but overall absolutely not outstanding. Low ABV hinted about a light beer and it is, i prefer dark beers that have more body.

11.2oz bottle. Pours a dark brown-black color with a large off white head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and a hint of sweet dark fruits. Taste is smokey, chocolatey, raisins, and bitter roasted coffee on the finish.

Presented as a Black IPA but I wouldn’t really agree with that. Dark brown. Aroma is toasty with roast and slight earthiness. Lightly toasty, chocolatey charctaer. More like a porter.

Tight nose. Great solid colour. Superb mouth feel. Depth of flavour with follow through and sturdy finish.
