Pours black color with a small head. Aroma of licorice, roasted malts, some fruits and hops. Flavor of resiny hops, dark fruits, toasted malts and some licorice notes. A bit off-balanced.
Odd, the description of the style does not match this beer... So why bother describe the style if your beer is going to taste otherwise...? Pours black (duh) with a small tan head. Aroma is somewhat hoppy with citrus, grapefruit but I’d say the malty burnt tones are what comes out strongest. Taste is medium bitter with quite a bit of coffee present. It’s definitely more towards a porter or stout than towards a black IPA in my book. Mouthfeel is medium, finish quite long and bitter (again, more coffee bitter than hop bitter).

Very nice hoppy aroma. This IPA is black like a stout but with a taste of a nice IPA. Foam is white/light brown and stays for a while.. Very nice beer from Mohawk.

(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with lasting, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Roasted, hoppy nose with notes of dried fruit, chocolate, rye bread, pine needles, citrus and a hint of liquorice. Roasted, hoppy taste with chocolate, coffee, dried fruit, spicy hints of rye, soy sauce and a generous piney, citric bitterness in a long, salty finish. More than medium body, with some sweetness. Not really balanced, but in my opinion very nice. stefannilssons (1578) - SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2011
Det här var en behaglig ölupplevelse och den inledde med en trevligt humlig arom. Smaken präglades dock av en kraftig maltighet med mycket kaffe, choklad och ett litet inslag av lakrits. Slutsats: gott. Cunningham (8527) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2011
