Not as fresh as I would like, and the rating will suffer for it, but I think I wouldn’t have loved it regardless. Notes of grapefruit linger, but a bit on the char/ashy side of malt presence, less on the cocoa/semisweet side I’d prefer from a slightly faded Black IPA. I don’t know that I’d be a huge fan of this beer if it was a day old, based on the malt profile. ansalon (4166) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2014
Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is roasted malts, tropical fruits, orange, cocoa nibs, brown sugar. Taste is peach, apricot, rye bread, a bit of roasted nuts, cocoa nibs and honey. Very good!

Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours a black with a tanned head. Nose is quite milk chocolate and espresso forward with pine hops. Taste has more of the dry milk chocolate and espresso coming through. Pine and citrus come into the picture. Biscuit malt coating at the end. Pretty solid brew s_hartshorne (2816) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014

Cuerpo ligero bastante fácil de beber. Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscura. buena sin mas. minutemat (6133) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Ritz. Has a lovely citrus aroma that hovers above the glass with a frosty freshness. Smooth, dark body with some lovely dark malts, a touch of grapefruit and a pinching bitterness on the finish, mellowing to a biscuity dryness. An exceptional beer.

Bottle. A colablack beer with a medium, dense and beige head. The nose is balanced, dry roastiness, exotic fruits, citrusfruits, coffee and some chalk. Taste is strongly roasted, lots of grapefruity and sour bitterness, coffee. The end is dry and burned. Medium bodied, a good beer to drink. Medium bodied, nice to drink. Balance isn’t totally succesfully, lots of bitterness and roastiness. Good beer, anyway. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Cask. Very deep brown colour, close to black, with a small off-white fluffy head. Aroma is fruity, some roasted malts as well as some citrusy notes. Flavour is roasted malts, raisin, some fruits and mild caramelly and liquorice notes as well. Finwe (438) - Grankulla, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Draught at Sam’s Pub, Karhula. Almost black with a beige head. Roasted malt, caramel, floral and fruity hops and burnt sugar in the aroma. The flavour is hoppy bitter and roasted malty with even some sweetness. A bitter and roasted finish.
