UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Another one of Dunham very good beer! Coffee, chocolate, roasty. Great looking beer, very dark, and a nice long lasting dark caramel head. 117 IBU, very hoppy, and you can taste all of them! A very good Imperial Black IPA, totally enjoyed it.

Light brown creamy head stayed well on a still black body.
Burnt bitter aroma - almost like burnt newspaper.
Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Crisp & clean on the back.
Overpowering smoky, burnt paper tastes with dark bitter berries, cold bitter espresso & under ripe fruit.

Fekete szín, bézs, krémes, tartós hab. Pörkölt illat. Krémes, pörkölt ízű kortyok. Eléggé keserű. Nem volt rossz.

Grumbo (4102) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2017
Bottle from Saveur Biere. Pours dark brown with a slight red tint and an average sized lasting off-white to beige head. Aroma is heavily roasted, malty, chocolate, hop, wood, toffee and dark fruit. Moderate sweetness, with heavy bitterness. Medium to full body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation. Level of bitterness and roasting dominates the finish, possibly a little too much, but a very good beer overall.

romanstep (677) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 17, 2017
W nosie średnio intensywnie, paloność, kawa zbożowa, nuty ziemiste, sól, żywica. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste, piękna, wysoka, beżowa piana. W smaku wytrawne, ultra nachmielone, paloność, popiół, żywica, kawa, minimalna kontra ciemnych owoców. Goryczka wysoka, żywiczno-palona. Alko praktycznie niewyczuwalne. Solidna rzecz. Butelka do 09.2018

Bottle at Svijet Piva, shared with Hrabren and Anja T. Black. Earthy, beety enormous beety aroma... Fuuuuuuuu. The taste carries along those lines, adding a citric dimension to the beets. Vague, empty bitterish aftertaste. Oh come ooooon. Even with transatlantic issues, how do you end up with this... Hard to drink. Says BB 11.18 and I seriously doubt that. Clusterfuck.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 0.33 l bottle from Svijet piva (World of Beer), drank at the pub. Black, lasting moderate tan head. Medium hopped, vegetable aroma, spinach or red beet? Very neutral dry, no bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, light finish. Not what we expected. 644212=2.8

Grzesiek79 (4443) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Niezwykle. Chyba najlepsze piwo z Kanady jakie pilem, poza tym chyba jedno z lepszyych w stylu Black IPA. Jeden z moich top stylow. Bezkompromisowe goryczkowe i chmielne piwo. Ilosc gorycki i chmielowego aromatu i smaku jest tu tak liczna jak ilosc ciosow w walce Ali z Foremanem. Niesamowite, bardzo bardzo gozkie, kawowe przy tym leciutko kwaskowe, piana spora ciemnawa w odcieniu waniliowym, geste oleiste. Totalny nokalt chmielowej goryczki. Niemal Genielne, mistrzowskie. A do tego alkohol wyczuwalny jakby to bylo tylko z 5%

AleRider78 (1469) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
Pours a thick frothy brownish head that leaves sticky lacing and has a dark brown/blackish appearance. Aromas of vanilla, hops, nutty malts. Flavours of malted barley, oats, floral and herbal hops, light spices, hints of vanilla and light chocolate. The hoppiness is well balanced with the malts, not too bitter and not too sweet. Goes down extremely well. Smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Hard to believe the ibu is 117 for this one. The bitterness is there for sure, but it’s balanced well to throw off. Really good.

jjsint (3516) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2017
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, Bury St Edmunds. This beer is pretty much absolutely black. Wow. Impenetrably opaque, with a small film of tan head. Liquorice, tar, hyssop, salted plum, light camphor notes. This is intense. The taste is bittersweet and quite wonderfully medicinal, full of burnt malts, with a bit more sweetness just before the finish. Liquorice cough drops and charcoal in the aftertaste. Nicely carbonated and tastes nowhere near 8.6%. It’s a really intense beer and not your run-of-the-mill BIPA.

BlazerT (1275) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Nice, thick, creamy, extremely bitter with strong piney, earthy and citrus notes. Moderate dark malts accents. If you are into heavy hopped beers that one is for you.
