UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 (Bottle). Very nice and fresh hop aroma with a solid foundation of roasted malt, slightly smoky with hints of licorice. Great taste of roasted malt and licorice with distinct flavors from the hops. In some respects reminiscent of a Porter. Absolutely superb beer!

Draft glass @ Billie’s Bier Kafétaria. Black indeed with a creamy tanned head. Nose is pine resin, very thick, herbal bitter, raw with some red grape, illusion of black chocolate, very bitter, raw. Taste is extremely bitter, one of the harshest IPA’s I have ever had, extremely really, very bitter herbal, lingering, burned malts, low very bitter licorice, burned malts, lingering burned malts, bitterness really last, very bitter red grape, aggressive,... Very thick black malt, syrup, burned malts, roast body. Extremely bitter in a more old fashioned fashion, brutal, enjoyable even if hard to drink. JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Nose ginger bread. Pale beige head. Dark black color. Malty and hoppy taste. Some spices too. Hoppy bitterness at end. wlajwl (6811) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Aroma is dark malts and sugary/citrus/fruit. The flavor is pine needles, citrus/fruit, dark malts and a mix of sugar and spices in the finish. Bought on a five dollar markdown, probably was old, but was pretty good for its age.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers. Deep black with very little head. Big coffee and baker’s chocolate nose, piney hops, a bit of cabernet. Sharp bitterness with some almost vinous like sourness. Hopey, piney bite on the finish with some roastiness. Maxbier (986) - Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Dark brown Nearly black pour with brown head. Herbal piney hop aroma with hints of cocoa. Up front flavor is dark bitter cocoa. Spicy piney hop character. The two flavors seem to live independently in the beer. Whatever I think about is what I am tasting. italianjohn (3138) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2016

Aroma of grapefruit, orange, herbs, roasted malt.
Pours almost black with a beige and creamy head.
Taste is medium bitter and medium to lightly sweet. The hops work well with the roasty malt backbone. Grapefruity and orangy taste.
Medium body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation and bitter finish of hops and a bit of roast. Nice black IPA.
