Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Can. Pours dark red and brown, with a small foamy brown head. Aromas of cocoa, light pine, orangepeel and overripe mango; also present are notes of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. The flavor is mild tart citrus peel, some bitter cocoa and pine, and a touch of coffee and mocha in the finish. This has an almost stout-like flavor and finish. Medium body and almost creamy. Pretty nice.  LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a nice creamy khaki colored head.
Aroma: Roast and grassy hops.
Taste: Dark chocolaty roast, spicy grassy hops. Some black coffee. Finishes dry and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Thin with prickly fizzy carbonation.
Overall: Solid, seemed to be more a dry porter than a Black IPA. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Can: Pours a dark black/mahogany color with a nice off-white head. The nose is hoppy with orange and tropical fruit notes, a large underpinning of chocolate and a touch of coconut. The flavor is clean and citrusy with a light malty mouthfeel with a touch of roastiness and a twang in the finish. Nice up front IPA with a black color, but that light twang in the finish takes away from the whole build up. omhper (25570) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2011

Vanilla and some bourbon come to mind on the first sip. Nice aroma of malts and some more of the vanilla. The pour is very dark brwon, almost black. Not as heavy as it sounds. Good one. Marheb (6037) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Belle couleur rubis foncé. Un nez plus houblonné que rôti. En bouche, l’amertume n’est pas aussi agressive que je l’aurais souhaité mais c’est une bière qui se boit sans problème. Rien d’exceptionnel mais très bien balancé. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Creamy tan head above a black body. Interesting perfumey aroma.. Perfumey and flowery, surprising given its black colour. Just a little bit of roast. A nice surprise. Shag (3041) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2011
This poured a dark brown color with little head. The aroma contains some caramel, toffee, and chocolate along with some citrus. The flavor is rather bitter with some dark malts. Overall this is ok but I just can’t get into this style is seems.
