Comes out of the tap an opaque coffee brown with a thin tan head. Aroma had notes of roast malt and quality coffee plus a snip of hops. Flavor has rich mocha and hop notes, like the best stout mixed with the best IPA, plus caramel, nutty, earthy and licorice tones and a fruity hint. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Firm texture is quite smooth and quite fizzy, leaving a hoppy mocha finish. Don’t fade away, drink one! MartzMimic (84) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Poured from bottle into a tulip. Dark doesn’t begin to describe it, as the light on my phone couldn’t pierce the blackness. Off-white foamy head that dissipated a little sooner than I would have expected based on other reviews. Smells of chocolate, coffee, plum and licorice. Burnt coffee and chocolate predominate the initial taste, but turns to hoppy bitterness that lingers. A bit of carbonation, but it really coats the tongue. I’m not really sure what this beer is trying to be. I don’t dislike it, but it feels a little muddled. TBone (17523) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013

Dark brown color, small brownish head. Woody, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Woody hoppyness, some bitterness, coffee roasted flavors, some licorce. Quite plain Black IPA, I like this less than the ratings here.
Pour on tap, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of orange, peel, chocolate covered fruit with some hints of dark cocoa, coffee, roasted malt notes, hints of grassy spice as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, chocolate, hints of orange peel, fruity notes with a hint of grass in there, finishing bitter, dry. Concealer (1246) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, near black with a foamy tan head that lasts and laces. Aromas of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, pine, and a subtle citrus. Flavor is bitter pine, roasted malt, light citrus, light coffee, and light chocolate. Medium bodied with a dry bitter finish.

Sampled at the brewery. Roasted malts, chocolate, citrusy, pine hops. A roasty hoppy black ale. A bit harsh with the citrus and roasted malts. gururyan (727) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Poured from bottle from a pack left at my place after a game. I will be donating the rest to whomever wants one. Not good.
