Colore marrone scuro, schiuma beige a grana finissima e di buona persistenza. Al naso intensa tostatura, leggermente secca, si avverte una nota dolce. Birra molto beverina, corpo medio, buon ingresso di malto tostato e cioccolato, retrogusto amaro e finale secco. Carbonazione media. Una bipa ben fatta, con una luppolatura decisa, un buon equilibrio tra dolce e amaro. vanvenlo (1886) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2016

Hop fruit berry aroma. Dark brown colour poor head and lacing. Malt berry hop flavour. Smooth palate. mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
On tap at Bitter Phew, pours black with a large brown head. Aroma brings out loads of roasted malt and piney hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with a highly roasted, nearly burnt malt quality upfront, backed by tons of bitter piney hops. Nicely balanced, with a harsh finish that works. Very good.

From a bottle. One of my favourite styles, light on the roasted flavours it’s quite hop forward. Very nice stuff.

Bottled 10/4/14. Deep black, off white frothy head. Aromas of milk chocolate, toasty coffee, loads of malt and a lick of grassy hops. A strong background of chocolate, coffee and milk with grassy/earthy hops going straight through the middle from start to finish. Beautiful beer.

Bottle.Nose of roast malt, piney hop, light chocolate, and alcohol fumes. Dark brown color with translucent edges and a light tan head. Flavors of roast malt, moderate piney hop, quite fruity, light citrus, and a gentle roast malt finish. Thin-medium body, light on the palate. Certainly a bit of a variant on the US version of the style (given the AUS hopping). Nice, but not really exceptional. marcus (10231) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours near black with a massive tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a smooth dark molasses flavor with a nicely bitter finish. It all goes together pretty well. Wim (3980) - Weelde, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2015

Bottle from Plonk. pours almost black with tiny white head. Floral and grassy hop aroma, lingering bitterness. Just a hint of roast at the end. A nice beer, with emphasis on the IPA over the black.
