Not quite black in colour. Holds its head ok. I personally like more robust flavour. Particularly as I do like a Guinness. Worth a try but some deeper and nicer black IPAs out there

Bottle at Sheehans, Dublin. Poured a murky dark brown with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is roasty malt, grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light grassy fruity light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Benzai (16569) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
Bottle shared by Beersiveknown @ tasting at his place. Huge thanks Steve! Dark brown color, average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, hops, hop bitter. Decent to medium body and carbonation. . hellsbrews (26) - Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2017
I’ve had this a few times, not overly offensive in the hop department. Drinks more like a dark brown ale than a black IPA. Still very nice.

Somewhat empty. Not bad, but not very good, too.
Bottle. Blackish beer with a reddish tinge and a strong slightly off white coloured head. The aroma is gently roasted, and the flavour is quite bitter with good roastedness and hops. Overall a nice beer. Idiosynkrasie (7855) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear, darkest brown colour with ruby glimmer and average, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of red berries and dark berries, blueberry, a touch of plum, dark malty background with a pumpernickel touch. Taste is dry hoppy, fruity and dark malty, slightly doughy yeasty, notes of plum and red berries, a touch of pumpernickel, cocoa and dark chocolate. If not genuinely an Irish, definitely an un-American interpretation of the style. blackisle (2763) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2016
