Appearance- utterly pitch black, a small beige head which quickly settled into a thin film. Aroma- plenty of fudgy chocolate, coffee, dark malt, caramel, hoppy and fruity undertones, chocolate orange, hints of vanilla sweetness, toffee-covered fruitcake. Taste- lots of bitter chocolate, orange peel, chocolate orange, overdone fruitcake, roasted malts, black coffee, undertones of Christmas cake. Hoppy bitter finish. Becomes more fruity and bitter with warmth. Smooth and full mouthfeel, alcohol very well hidden. Nicely blended, doesn’t seem like 10%. FraekkeFyr87 (698) - - MAY 27, 2016

Svart med litet ljusbrunt skum. Stor rostade toner, främst kaffe, i doften men även lite citrus. I smaken kommer först kaffe och lakrits, sedan kommer lite citrus och tallbarr och därefter en rejäl lakritsbeska. En riktigt välbalanserad black IPA.

330ml bottle from Beervana. Pours a deep black color with a medium light brown head that diminishes into a small film that lingers. Aroma is amazingly intense, a battle between the hops and the roasted malts without a clear winner. Huge hoppy notes of grapefruit, mango, citrus, pine and tangelo, battling the charry, licorice, molasses and dark espresso from the roasted grains. The "middle of the road" that summarizes the smell is a black olive character. Taste is bitter from two different angles, strong green/orange hoppy flavors and dark roasted coffee-ish notes. The result is a blend of incredible intensity. Ripe and rich flavors overwhelm the tastebuds. Delicious. Body is big and bold. Alcohol presence is well-concealed although the warming effect contributes nicely to the feeling of immensity. Low carbonation. I do not rate it higher because I feel it’s an ejoyable tour-de-force but not a highly refined brew. nihtila (3908) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2016
Keg at Brewdog Manchester. Pours very dark brown, brown head. Nose is roast, sweet dsrk malts, piney hops. Taste is hoppy fruity, pine, roast, bitter roasty and warming finish. Strong, bitter and fruity bipa. likeatrainwreck (572) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2016
Really well balanced BIPA. Just the right amount of roasted, sweet sticky malts and piney, tropical hops. One of the best I’ve had. Delicious. Evolutionary (523) - Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle from andersons. Nose is coffee and smoke with bit of hop. Blackish and taste matches. Malt and cocoa and dark sugars linger in with the hop acridity. Would've done more stout to Ipa ratio but pretty good.
