650ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Almost black, good head. Tar hop aroma. Tar boiled sweet & hop flavour. Bitter sweet peppery hoppy aftertaste. Good but I expected better. andriesradu (706) - ROMANIA - AUG 29, 2014
65cl bottle. Pours black with a big beige head. Moderate fruity hoppy aroma. Flavor is moderate bitter and has quite strong notes of roasted malt balanced very well by nice fruity hops notes and citrus. gnashville (4) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014 does not count
Pours deep black with a creamy off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Faint roasted notes and a whiff of hops on the nose. This follows through well into the palate with a nice dark chocolate bitterness, though it is slightly one noted. This doesn’t detract too much as it’s a great note. The finish is somewhat creamy with a hint of sweetness. Perfect weight and mouthfeel. Slickity do da day.

Bottle @ Champ League Kval. Aab - Apoel. Pours black with a creamy head and lacings. Roast, pine and coffee roast. Smooth and dry. Actually past its BB date although its a newly imported beer to Denmark. Thankfully its holding up pretty well. Bitter finish.

The piny, floral aroma is rich but not too aggressive. The flavor contains pine, tobacco, resin, rye, and wheat bran. It is smoky, lightly acidic, and nicely balanced with no screwy sweet notes. Black IPA isn’t my favorite style, but this is a good one. Torrefacto (1677) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 18, 2014
Color caoba oscuro con densa espuma beige. Aromas de frutas tropicales, pino y tostados. Cuerpo medio con inicio afrutado y lúpulo "picante" con un final amargo, seco y resinoso. Excelente. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2014
