Thanks for sharing Sebastian! Pours a dark brown with orange highlights. Smell is dark roasted malt, mild licorice. Taste is roasted malt, spice, piney hops with a dry finish. Active carbonation...a bit too much and light body. Not too exciting but also not too bad. Rando7 (787) - Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle pours almost black with thin tan ring. Aroma malts with licorice, roast and cocoa. Taste mundane with caramel and roast. Finish bitter with roast and some hops - tough to call this an IPA. Palate thin . Just OK. dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours dark black with a huge tan head. Overcarbonated from the loos of it. The nose is roasted coffee, nuts, flour and resin. The taste is sweet with a good amount of bitter. The mouthfeel is like pop rocks. To much carbonation. The body is light, the finish is medium., It’s ok. madmitch76 (26422) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013

Opaque black beer, good pale tan head. Softish palate. Nice fine carbonation. Medium dark malt with super mild roast. Bitterish pine with subtle red berry fruits. Nice black IPA, very drinkable without being spectacular.
Dark brown/black color; Medium body; Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, & hops; Flavor of roasted malt, hops, chocolate, and citrus; Finish is bitter; Fairly decent.

Bottle. Black with a frothy light brown head that retreats a bit with little lacing. Aroma is grain, citrus, soap, a little pine, cocoa. Body is medium, carbonation is lively, texture is light watery. Flavour is light with roasted malt that lasts into the finish, where some citrus/orange pops up and stays a long while in the nose. Nice. Taste is medium bitter and dry. Dry lube? Not that hoppy, more like a 6 abv porter. Dry roast and citrus. Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 11, 2013
from Erzbierschof - dark beer under a huge persistent dark beige foam; very hoppy aroma of pine needles, licorice and black cherries; medium-bodied, some astringency and a robust biting bitterness; long hoppy finish of licorice and black cherries; pretty dry Benzai (16923) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2013 650ml bottle thanks to Joes. Opaque pitch black color, full sized light brown head that lasts for quite a long time. Smell and taste malts, hops, slightly some fruits and moderately bitter. Fizzy carbonation, ok body. Overall a bit disappointing and too highly carbonated.
