Opaque dark brown beer, little tan head. Palate is softish with fine carbonation. Creamy dark malt, light roast. Pinch of salt. Nice fresh orange, citrus and marmalade. Whisper of pine. Finishes smooth with a medium bitter linger. Nicely joined up and tasty Black IPA.
Bottle shared at Sander’s in NYC. Pours black-brown with a creamy, tan head. Burnt pine in the nose, some grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor, nice roast, subtle chocolate, pine, earth, ripe citrus, grapefruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Modestly resinous to finish, further roast, pine, grapefruit. Pretty solid. Rasmus40 (20789) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2013

Extremely dark mahogony brown with a thin light tan head.
Nose is light roast, hops, sugar, cocoa, tropical fruit notes.
Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, pine, brown sugars, hops, cocoa dusting.
Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, light hop bitterness and subtle roast in the finish.
A decent enough CDA but not top draw. saxo (18441) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk. Nice head with good duration. Color is close to black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, caramel, flowers, hops, pine and fruits. mcberko (17847) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts and moderate piney hops - not the most aromatic of black IPAs. Flavour brings out a nice balance of piney hops and roasted malt, though the flavours are rather weak and almost muted. The flavours come out more as the beer warms up, but the whole thing is rather underwhelming. Good black IPA, but leaves something to be desired.

Very dark brown, the aroma has rich molasses malts. Sweet, not a lot of hop save for a little bitterness. A dash of alcohol...good balance, arguably a robust porter. chrisv10 (17459) - DENMARK - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle, 8.1%. Almost black with small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, hops and citrus. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, medium sweet, hop, pine, grapefruit and medium bitter.
