3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Pours a very dark brown, strong oak aroma with hints of roasted malt, smooth and rich. Give it a go.
Tap at the Royston Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is roasty malt, grassy hop. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a crisp, dry roast, grassy, liqourice hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A good black IPA but a little lacking on the citrus hop side for my liking. roflorence (110) - South Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2017

TAP. Clean dark pour with minimal tan head.. Dark nose, with a mild hoppyness to it.. Big dark backbone, initially dark malts go to a touch of coffee with the finish being sharp fruit hops.. Sourced Fire Station ANZUShophunter (655) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2016
On tap at Scratch for Weekend of Darkness. Black with tan head and a forest-like aroma of piney hops and oak. The rich taste of Karma Citra works well with the barrique: there’s a lot going on in this one with the interplay between bitterness and malt backbone. I’ve been a big fan since my first bottle and I’m glad to finally find it on tap. Hail to the Chief! vanvenlo (1926) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2016

Glass @ GABS 2016, Melbourne
Near-black with tan head.
Good nose - plenty of citrus & pine hop, charred malt, touch of vanilla & toasty oak.
Lovely smooth texture to it. Palate reveals notes of toasty buttery oak amongst big resiny hop notes & mild roast notes. Top notch! Ngejo (1000) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - MAR 28, 2015

Bottle from Beer Cartel (April 2014). Oily dark brown/black, creamy tan head, chocolate, vanilla, some subtle oak, roast grain, piney hops, smooth texture, full body, long dry bitter finish. Excellent. stoutnick (843) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2014
Black big tan head. Aroma is amazing - vanilla choc wafer black malt. Taste is the same with some nice bitterness balancing the vanilla sweetness. Great stuff - one of the best black IPAs around.
