UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 On tap at Mountain Goat Brewery. Pours a near pitch black pour with a small white head. Aromas of roasted malts with a mocha and slight caramel flavour coming through with floral hops and pine notes. Taste is well balanced with a slight bitterness left lingering around your palate. This beer does knock you around and is highly enjoyable for a black ipa.

ean palate, by comparison, with more obvious hops drying out the palate. Cut grass and roast on the nose, both of which are subtle greg244 (24) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 18, 2016

just unretired this one - it’s been on tap at both the happy wombat and the grain store in newcastle during the last week, listed as before the dawn black ipa. dark purpley brown with a thin, large-bubbled, off-white head; aroma of lamingtons, stewed pear; modest bitterness for the style and without much new world hop presence, but some pleasant roasted notes as it warms, light caramel and milk chocolate; probably as much a brown ale as it is a black ipa Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2014
Nice blend of citrus and resinous hops. Jet black colour with nice head. Creamy caramel and choc flavours with a bitter resin finish. Med to heavy body with med carbonation

Poured an opaque black with a brown-red edge. Three- to four-finger light tan head that diminished but retained as a thin bubble line. Laced as sudsy rings. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste strongly of roasted grain plus spices, citrus hops and a trace of roasted malt. Light body - lighter than was expected. Smooth long bitter finish. Quite nice.

Deep ruby body, verging on opaque. Tight tan head holds
Moderate aroma; cooked citrus, woody spice, dried leafy hops, with some faint dry roast & biscuity malts.
Reasonably lively carbonation, full body with good length, yet alcohol well obscured.
Plenty of flavour on the palate; spicy, citrusy hops backed by lightly roasted malt notes of cocoa & charcoal. Firm bitterness on a drawn out finish.
Decent black IPA; well made - abv certainly well-masked!. Probably lacking the depth of complexity of the best examples. varanid99 (1317) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2013
Black pour with a thick, fluffy pale brown head. Fruit cake, smoke, malty aromas, tiny bit of coffee. There is a little coffee in the taste too, some passionfruit, chocolate, roasty flavours, a little oily and very more-ish. Fantastic beer.

Pours totally black with a brown head. Aroma is malt with fruits, chocolate, roasty notes and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a hoppy and fruity finish. Very very good! LesArgen (370) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2013
A fruit basket of aromas gives way to smoke, cigarettes, citrus, resin and coffee. The taste is fascinating, with lots of grapefruit, licorice, resin, and coffee to mention a few. There are a lot of flavours in here and the only real knock on it is that the palate is a little thin, but hey - it’s a beautiful looker, all deep black with a tan head.
