jkwood04 (5369) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 5, 2012
500ml bottle in an English pint. Pours black with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lots of roasted malts, and some coffee and chocolate. A very hoppy version of the beer geek breakfast. More like a black IPA than a stout. Average texture. A really good beer.

DanielBrown (4430) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Pours a beautiful glossy black, with a magnificent brown, thick topping. Smells very good indeed, beautiful hoppy charcoal. Flavour is maybe not as smooth as I expected, but this is a very minor quibble, as it is certainly smooth enough. Beautifully balanced mixture of pie-crusted chocolate inflected Stout, swished back and front with a wash of piney/resin hops and sweetly fragrant green hued tang. Really a magnificent beer, which is a Black IPA as far as Im concerned. One of the best ever.

Beersiveknown (5148) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle at home from beer merchants courtesy of my fiance, thanks! Pours dark brown-black with a cappuccino foam head and an aroma of mango skin and pine forest. Smooth in the mouth with milk chocolate up front, some granular coffee, watermelon, tangerine pith, a touch of soap, sweet toffee and fruity coffee. Very gentle carbonation. Belies its strength. Excellent balance.

Pours dark with tan head that dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma is very hoppy, pine, roast malts, coffee. Taste resinous, coffee, toasted malts, bitterness. full body, sticky, long dry palate wrecking finish.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Draught is the same but nicer head and lace. 20110125 at Breukelen Bier Merchants. Bottle from this year. nearly black with a little tan head and lace. Aroma is spruce, bright tangy espresso, spice and earth. Flavor is rich coffee malt and a sharp fairly one dimensional hop bitterness. The palate is surprisingly thin and clean except for and long lasting mouthwatering but still dry bitter end. this is good but seems over rated to me. Nothing meshes that well. When more cold at first it was awesome with calf liver and onions as a strong palate cleanser. The striking bitterness was perfect first.

mabel (8652) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
[4406-20120501] 1pt0.9floz bottle. Figgy richly roasted coffee cocoa malt. Black body with a long-lasting creamy dark brown head. Roasted nutty grains and coffee ground malt flavour is quite bitter with faint evergreen hops. Full body. Delicious beer, well-rounded and balanced, love the hoppy bitterness infusion.

Opaque black beer. Thick frothy tan head. Light piney grassy hop nose. Softish palae, fairly dry. Creamy roasted malt, hint of coffee. Alongside is piney grassy hops, fresh. Finishes dry with bitterness from the roasted malt and the hops. The roasted malt and the hops are 2 different aspects rather than a seamless whole but its very drinkable.

mknoblich (7) - Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2012 does not count
Pours dark chocolate color with tan/brown head. Smells of chocolate, coffee and hops. Initial sip starts off with chocolate and coffee notes with a punch of hops at the end. Hop resin coats the mouth and sticks with you. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big roasty aroma with hints of chocolate and some hops. Nice mouthfeel. Taste has lots of chocolate. Long bitter finish. Some hops come through as does the roast malt flavours. Im not getting much more but its very enjoyable.

Whoa! Thats roasty! Deep, dark, robust, charred, scorched, burnt malts, oh and a crap load of hops. Huge nose of roast, pine and espresso. The only thing keeping this out of impy territory is the body and mouthfeel, it lacks the viscosity of an impy. Very high bitter finish, loads of pine. The bitterness grabsyour taste buds and hangs on for dear life. This is to be expected from this brewer. Mikkeller in my opinionthe leaders in extreme brewing.
