UPDATED: DEC 24, 2022 Næsten hel kulsort, flot beige skumkrone, umiddelbart ikke meget duft men efter lidt tid i glasset breder aroma sig af ristede malt, kaffe, mørk choko. Normalt ikke en fan af mørke IPA, men denne fungerer ret godt. Starter bittert, men så kommer den mørke smag med kaffe og kakao nuancer. Forfriskende at de mørke smage ikke er efterfulgt af voldsomt sødme. Øl var næsten et år gammel, måske er den bedre frisk. EvNa (4050) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2022
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2022 Can. Brewed since 2007 according to the label, so happy 15th birthday! :) Color: Very dark reddish brown, almost black. Thin light brown head. Aroma: Hoppy, some citrus fruit. Taste: Very hoppy, notes of citrus fruit, dark and roasted malt. Some coffee, bit fruity (like coffee beans). Moderate sweet and over moderate bitterness going to over medium at the finish. Very long lasting dry and bitter (grapefruit zest) and bit roasted finish. Superb Black IPA.

Appearance: Black colour, dirty-white rich head which soon gets smaller, cappuccino alike.
Aroma: Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, nuts, cream, hint of alcohol.
Palate: Full body, oily, soft carbonation.
Taste: Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, gently sweet and later bitter (like dark chocolate) aftertaste.
Overall impression: First impression is “heavy”, but… it is very aromatic, tasty, intense…drinkable despite ABV…Excellent for sipping. GreenCat (672) - SLOVENIA - AUG 28, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2022 0,355 l can. Pours black with big, light tan frothy lasting head. Aroma is actually quite subdued. Some toasted malts, dark chocolate, slightly fruity hop notes. Flavor however packs a punch, toasted malts, dark chocolate, black coffee due to heavy bitterness and mild sweetness. Finish is long, flavors fade before final bitter kick. Starts sublime, but ends brash! dunklermessias (2576) - GERMANY - AUG 15, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2022 Black color and a nice tan head. Restrained nose, hoppy, red fruits, roasted malts. Nice hoppy-fruity Taste, followed by a dry-maltyness and an astrined hoppy finish.
