500ml bottle poured into Stone IRS snifter. Pours a deep motor-oil black with a finger-thick brown head. Aroma is outta this world! Piney hops, coffee, black chocolate, roasted malts...oh-my-gosh. Taste is medium sweet and only lightly bitter as some sugar content blends with it nicely. Body is medium, texture is silky and smooth, carbonation rather low. Finish is roasty with some bitterness. Overall: this is my first Mikkeller and I was simply blown away. This is some world-class stuff. This is one of the rare brews which makes me want to meet the brewer in person so that I can thank him on making such a good product. A MUST-buy!
33 cl. bottle. A black beer with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, hops, caramel, chocolate, coffee and with a bitter finish. PabloZab (1582) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 14, 2017
Bottle 330ml (BB 10.10.2026). Completely black with big, beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is combination of roasty notes characteristic for stout and citrus, hoppy notes characteristic for IPA. There is also hint of chocolate. Roasty, a little bit chocolate, dry in taste with delicate resin bitterness, intense but short with subtle sweetness in aftertaste. Beer is smooth, medium carbonated, medium body but quite light in feeling with completely hidden alcohol. Very tasty black IPA but for me the bitterness could be much higher.

Fajna black ipa, w aromacie paloność i czekolada wraz z cytrusami, w smaku podobnie, cytrusy i owoce tropikalne, czekolada, paloność, kawa, na dodatek średnia goryczka. ramboraffe (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2017
330 ml bottle from Mikkeller beer club. Black with off white head. Roasted malt with coffee and bitter chocolate together with hoppy pine and citrus. Smooth semi dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation. More like a hoppy stout than a Black IPA in my opinion. wiedrzensky (930) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark with creamy stable brownish head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, honey, lime, herbs, very inviting. Taste is light bitter with coffee and chocolate on tongue. Medium body, soft to flat carbonation, slick to oily texture, coffee bitter finish. Very well ballanced.

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Tworzy piękną, kremową pianę. W aromacie na pierwszym ogniu kawa, dalej czekolada, a następnie nuty cytrusowe - dobrze wkomponowane. W smaku dosyć słodko, kawowo, silniej zayrsowany cytrus. Dosyć gęste. Umiarkowanie kremowe. Średnio wysycone. Bardzo dobre! SebBrews (186) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAY 17, 2017
Pitch black with frothy, medium-thick, lasting espesso head. Nice lacing. Nose is dark malts, roasted coffee, coffee liquor, cocoa, some oine resin. Medium, roasty bitter taste which evolves to a smokey and slihtly ashy character towards the end. Flavours of coffee and licorice with nice hoppy undertones. Bitter finish. Full body, thick texture, medium carbonation. It’s a nice crossover between a thick roasty stout and a black IPA.

Aroma is roasted peanuts, blueberries, coffee, dark chocolate. Light sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting roasty and hoppy medium bitter. Full body, slick texture, medium carbonation. Quite easy dessert beer, very tasty, well balanced, great one. mygeekway (179) - Grodków, POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Bjcp: aromat 9, wygląd 2, smak 17, usta 5, ogólnie 8
W zapachu kawa dominuje nad iglakami, w smaku świetna kawa, paloność, goryczka lekka, fajny balans i pełnia. Absolutnie pijalne. Może trochę więcej iglaków z chmieli można sobie życzyć. drpimento (3673) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2017
It’s a pretty good beer, but except for the bitterness the Hops don’t really come through. Aroma is rosty, coffee, dark malt, black patent. Flavor’s like nose, fairly dry, with a bit of sweet in the finish.
