Bottle @ CBC, 2013. Pours black with a creamy head. Pine and roast. Bitter hoppy flavor and finish with notes of marmelade and grapefruit. Really tasty. brystmar (1314) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Growler. Rich malt and piney hops, yet lacks the roasty depth that defines the style. Bitter, mildly resinous. Tastes more like a typical west coast IPA than a Black IPA. But too much carbonation and not enough body. Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Smells great. Hoppy with a slight chocolate aroma. Smells light bodied. It is a dark brown beer with a medium brown head. A nice bitter taste with a smooth vreamy mouthfeel. Theres a choc flavor aftertaste and has a medium body. Not bad. Worth a try for sure. Its not overpoweringly bitter and the choc combo with the bitterness is great. haukur (2124) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - MAY 6, 2013
Tasty black IPA, a bit surprising though. Brown towards black in looks, small head. Loads of malt and spices in the nose, some obvious spices and earth tones. Tingeling bitterness. Delicate and good! jmgreenuk (10330) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a dark brown colour with a thick frothy tan head. The aroma is grassy hop leading to a medium bitter flavour, spicy, grassy and with some pepper on the palate. This beer grew on me the more I drank it. Worth tracking down if you can.
Benzai (16918) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ CBC 2013. Very dark brown color with a deep red glare coming through, small off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly roastyness but a lot of hops, some fruityness, lightly grapefruit, very nicely bitter. Superb balance, long lingering hoppy finish. Superb! conlepa1 (74) - Chillicothe, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Roasted. Nutty. Chocolate. Bitter. Sweet. Very nice. Wonderfully balanced yet complex. Hard to say ive had a better black ipa. Very nicely done... deanso (10266) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - MAY 4, 2013
Sample at cbc 2013.
Hoppy aroma. Thin creamy tan head. Clear black pour. Nice bitterness. Plovmand (8683) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours brown with a medium off white head. The aroma is citrus, roast and licorice. The flavor is citric and sweet malty with some sweet licorice. Hoppy citric finish. Ktwse (5667) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Pours red-brown with low tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus, coffee, alcohol. Taste is boozy sweet before a long bitter finish with an almost medicinal, pungent quality. Body is light to medium with soft carbonation.
