Notes of coffee and nuts. Good bitterness from the hops. Just wish it were a little thicker.

So much weirdness going on in this beer. Is it an IPA? A black IPA? A coffee stout? An unholy bastardization of all three? Im 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.

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.

Bottle. Black, small tan head. Coffee, hints of mint and pepper, more coffee. Smooth texture interestingly contrasts with harshly bitter finish. Good stuff.

Strong roasted malt. But no smoky roasting. It feels like a dark stout with just the right amount of alcohol.

It looks like a stout, but it aint 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 isnt a problem. The taste is about coffee (stout part) followed by light bitterness which leaves a dry mouth. Maybe dark ipa isnt the right name for the style, but it is clearly worth a try.

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.

XTap @ Mikkeller. Black, good head. Coffee hop aroma and flavour. Bitter aftertaste. This is a classic black IPA

Poured from a bottle. Black with a nice brown head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Lightly sweet with a dry medium bitter finish.
