Smells rather unpleasant, roast/coffee or fruit is not that dominant. Tastes rather like a light Porter than IPA (some coffee, some chocolate). Fine beer but there are better BIPAs. SeniorZozo (1843) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 26, 2017

So much weirdness going on in this beer. Is it an IPA? A black IPA? A coffee stout? An unholy bastardization of all three? I’m saying yes to all, since the various notes hitting your tongue with each sip makes every style seem reasonable. Massive coffee stout nose, chocolate and java, yet with an unexpectedly strong citric-pine undercurrent. Pour is amazing, deep rich black with a massive brown head and endless lacing. Taste starts in stout territory, mocha backed by a firm bitterness, yet the IPA notes crank up almost immediately, bathing everything in a bright citrus hop oiliness. Keeps with the espresso notes, yet a deep caramel sweetness tinged with anise adds padding, while the hops stay both bright and green and assertive. Finishes with a lengthy pinecone-in-my-coffee fade. Holy hell is this beer delicious. Perfect texture, silky smooth with just the right amount of carbonation to keep it floating between IPA and stout. I could drink this pint for years. tanel025 (129) - ESTONIA - APR 23, 2017
Pours very dark brown, almost black with brown head. Aroma is bread, smoke, roasted malts. Taste is slight sweetness from barly malt, then strong oats, then bitterness from hops. Do not feel coffee. Light sweetness, strong bitterness. Too much oats for my taste and too little barley. Serapac (483) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 23, 2017
Bottle. Black, small tan head. Coffee, hints of mint and pepper, more coffee. Smooth texture interestingly contrasts with harshly bitter finish. Good stuff.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2017 Arôme houblonné. Belle couleur noire avec un beau com de mousse brune. Plus un stout, gout de café très puissant. Amertume très légère. Elle sèche la bouche Ulysse (526) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2017
Strong roasted malt. But no smoky roasting. It feels like a dark stout with just the right amount of alcohol. Nicolas_M (199) - BELGIUM - APR 22, 2017
It looks like a stout, but it ain’t really like one. Dark ipa is the name, and an hybrid between ipa and stout it is. Maybe too much stout over ipa, but it isn’t a problem. The taste is about coffee (stout part) followed by light bitterness which leaves a dry mouth.
Maybe dark ipa isn’t the right name for the style, but it is clearly worth a try. bonev (780) - POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Piwo w kolorze czarnym nalewa sie z obfita bezowa drobnopecherzykowa piana ktora powoli znika. W aromacie paonosc, iglaki w polaczeniu z gorzka czekolada i kawa. W smaku mamy to samo, bardzo wytrawne z lekko zalegajaca intensywna goryczka i wysyceniem na srednim poziomie. JohnRMurdoch (4867) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2017
XTap @ Mikkeller. Black, good head. Coffee hop aroma and flavour. Bitter aftertaste. This is a classic black IPA
