Rune (11636) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
330ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Good looking with a decent fawn-coloured head, spotty lacing down the glassware, and a dark brown coloured body with a rustic glint. Mixed aroma of dark fruits and dark malts. Brown and black malts upfront, caramel and chocolate, joined by bitter dark fruit and a nice little roastiness to the finish. Quite easy to drink. Clean in the mouth. Like it (Troms 10.12.2014).

Sjohnh (832) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Like many black IPAs, a confusingly enjoyable hybrid. Nose has grapefruit, dark fruits and light coffee. Taste has milky coffee, soft toffee and chocolate, pineapple and grapefruit. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very dark brown with off-white head. Good stuff.

Brasserie du North Yorkshire ,UK. Inconnue au bataillon,cette bire a attire mon attention dabord par son tiquette franchement russie et surtout le nom, Black Jesus, donc, Lord Have Mercy !!! cest une Black IPA, tout est dit.au service, une belle mousse crmeuse, fine ,qui disparait assez vite. Au nez ,cest assez trange, droutant meme, alors en vrac, fruit, chocolat au lait, un peu caf grill, beurr (?!!),on sattend en bouche du sucr, du suave,et au dbut,cest a ..sauf que a dure pas..ya Jesus qui se rebiffe, y tend pas lautre joue,y sort le nunchak, le gonze, sbraaaaak dans ta face, lamertume bien sentie te remet ta place de pauvre pcheur...Bien sympa, parceque a nen fait pas une bire extrme pour autant, a passe bien, trs bien meme, une belle russite.

On tap in BeerCab. Nice color so black. Small and off head. Chocolate aroma, hoppy notes too. Medium-high bitterness, milk-chocolate and grapeful in taste. Medium-high body. Roasty-bitter finish.
