Bottle 330ml from Swords. Masterpiece, with great hoppiness in taste and aroma. The nose has burnt caramel, pine, grass, and some smoke. Taste has a strong bitter backbone, spiciness, and very long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Dark brown, cloudy, with a frothy head. Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2012
330mL bottle, Pours pitch black but less viscosity then that of a stout and a big tan head. Aroma is amazing on this beer.. huge resinous hop hit on the nose and then the creamy chocolate with a slight hint of coffee. So much hop flavour to this beer but it is so well balanced with elements of the darker malts... i am falling in love. Kooinda can you do no wrong? If you get the chance to try this beer, do it! its amazing! RichardHFish (11) - - APR 13, 2013
Bottle, The Burrow, West End, QLD. A great example of a black IPA, jet black, even when held to the light. Great aroma, filled with the coffee and slightly burnt notes that fit the colour. Taste half matches the aroma, but has spicy and floral flavours permeating through, which are nicely matched to the malt body. The abv sits nicely in with the flavour profile. Overall, awesome beer!
