4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a medium-sized brown head that leaves lacing. Aroma is an interesting combination of typical roasted malty notes and and not so typical hoppy notes, the former being more prominent, however. Taste is exactly like the aroma suggested. It is light sweet at first with bitterness growing towards the finish. Malty flavours include chocolate and coffee, hoppy theme grassy and piny notes. Palate is medium bodied and very smooth. Delicious, strongly hopped stout, a bit lighter version of Imperial Stouts but similar flavours.
Bottle from Otters Tears, Burslem. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of marshmallow, roasted malts, some coffee, slight caramel, a hint of dark fruits and subtle spicy citrus. Taste of roasted malts, caramel, coffee, some marshmallow, slight chocolate, a little pine, a hint of dark fruits and subtle spicy citrus. Medium bodied, thick texture and moderate carbonation. A long, dryish, roasted coffee bitterness in the finish. More like a stout than a black IPA, subtle hoppiness but mainly roastiness. Great body when warmed a little with some sweet marshmallow and caramel coming through. Superb as a stout but average as a BIPA. Thoroughly enjoyed overall though. rumore (651) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 14, 2017

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 (1621) - 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.

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 (938) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 18, 2017
