harrisoni (17712) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle at La Brocante Brussels. Black beer lasting tan head. More a hoppy stout than a black ipa but all the better for that I think. Some roast malt but mostly chocolate. Decent bitterness on the finish. Good beer. A hoppy stout. Touch of chocolate lime on the finish.

yngwie (16768) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. A dense, two-finger dark beige head forms over a dark reddish brown body. The aroma has a faint Belgian touch I think, with roasted malts, licorice notes and some prunes. Some dark sugar too. Its full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, quite dry. Roasted malts, licorice, dried fruits and some yeast in the flavor, along with a nice bitterness. Lasting finish. Not your average Black IPA, but its nice anyway. 150524

mcberko (16064) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
330mL bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma is very earthy, with dry dank hops, and a little toasted breast malt. Flavour is yeasty and hoppy and dank, with notes of roasted malt, earthy hops, and dry unsweetened cocoa. Extremely well-balanced, with a dry palate. Excellent black IPA Belgian style.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Thanks to Halling, Kingcecil and ronnemos1. Pours Black With a creamy head and lacings. Incredible nose and flavor. A balanced mixture of licorice, roast, coffee, pine and grapefruit. Smooth, soft and dry. This brewery should be recognized amongst the Best. Quality as Always..
