The style heavily limits my enjoyment of this beer, but it’s got a nice piny aroma reminiscent of being in an evergreen forest and a slight almost minty quality. I’m still not a fan of black IPAs but this is a good one.
Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A very dark dark brown beer with a mid-sized good lasting beige head. Aroma of intense hoppy dark fruits, coffee, citrus. Taste of dark roasted malt, quite hoppy dark fruits, citrus, coffee, nice! Erzengel (9736) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2018
8.2% version with 65 IBU. Smooth mild deep beginning. Caramel, roast, lots of floral piney hops. Hints of an aroma that might be polaris, refreshing and deep. Roast, floral hops, deep with a dry caramelly roasted body. Long intense aftertaste, round and fantastic deep. Long dry malty roasted caramel aroma on the tongue with a nice floral bitterness. Very nice! rosskyle (796) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2018
Bottle. Dark brown color with an off white head. Citrus tropical fruit aroma. Roasted citrus malt bitter flavour. Medium body.

Reminds me of Shakespeare Stout, which i haven't had in over a decade I suppose. Mild roast, bright citrusy hops, medium mouthfeel, semi-sweet at finish with a moderate bitterness. Dark, essentially opaque. kingaugusta (293) - Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2017
Pours near black with a lingering off white head. Nose is dark malts and moderate hops. Flavor is a very well balanced black IPA. Good stuff

Black, tan head, nice lacing, and decent head retention. Roast, mild licorice, dark fruit, mild alcohol, pine, and mild medicine notes. Medium bodied, malty front and hoppy finish, high roast & pine, and mild alcohol notes. High roast and hip notes, mildly astringent, and lingering hip bitterness. In summary, great nose, but flavor & palate miss mark due to astringent characters.
