Bottle. Aroma of hops, a bit fruity. Looks very nice, pitch black with coffee like head. Tastes of roasted malts that soon evolves in a nice bitterness, that prepares you to sip more and more.

Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Clear dark pour turns out as black in glass, magic! Nice color, one finger creamy light brown head sticks nicely giving good lacing rings. Hoppy fresh and fruity aroma, pine needles, roasted malt, tropicality. Good palate, oily but not sticky, medium bodied, slick, bitter but not overwhelmingly, semisweet, long nuanced and lively finish. Really good stuff in all areas.

On draft in Madrid. Light bodied Black IPA. A bit hazy and a deep dark brown color. A little light on aroma for me, but the balance is fantastic. Carb level is perfect, and a great bitterness level that is present, but allows the malt character to come through. Great example of the style!

Tropical fruits, coffee, chocolate and a hint of grass in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body with a average carbonation.Nice balancing.

Dun brun trs fonc, cette bire laisse un mince collet beige. Des armes de torrfaction sentremlent aux effluves dhoublons plutt agrumes. En bouche, cest dabord lamertume et le malt torrfi qui sont perus, mais sen suit rapidement les agrumes et la mangue. En finale, cest une combinaison de caf, damertume et de rsine. Une texture lgrement crmeuse et agrable en bouche, on a l une black IPA bien balance!

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2015
Remember when IPAs were bronze or orange? Me neither. The pendulum has swung so far that the black tide has temporarily swept good Australian bottle shop shelves clear of traditional IPAs. This is a good bottle-conditioned English example of the style. Prodigious lacing head. Aroma of mango, passionfruit and milky coffee. Bright citrus flavours with a resinous, piney finish. Espresso notes and some alcohol burn. Phlegmy. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 11/6/15)
