COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We don’t actually wish you harm but our Malvolent Imperial Black IPA will assault your taste buds with reckless abandon. Evil might be represented in its black colour. Alchol is definitely there. But simcoe columbus and centennial hops have been used in a distrubing amount to give the flavour and aroma in this behemoth Imperial Black IPA. You have been warned

Can @ benzai. Something with carnaval. Black with a small light nrown head. Smells farty, poop, rotten, weird. Whatever my peers say: they’re wrong. Tastes bitter, hops, roasty. A bit too bitter actually. Full body, nice carbo.

lello4ever (990) - ITALY - FEB 23, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 Nera con ampia schiuma marrone molto ampia e cremosa. Grande black ipa con un bel naso erbaceo e deciso, al palato torrefatto e amaro, con quella punta dolce data dal grado alcolico. Nonostante tutti resta beverina e fresca. Finale secco. Bellissima black ipa, come. Le vorrei sempre, perfetto equilibrio di dolcezza e amaro.

caesar (7156) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2017
Can from Hopt.nl, canned 08 April 2016 BB 8 months after canning, 50 cl sample. Very dark brown color, medium frothy almost creamy head. Aroma gives the best of what a black IPA should be: lovely balance between earthy and piney hops and soft roasty and dark bready malts, with an extra touch of sweet cookie and chocolate to give more complexity. Medium to high hoppy bitterness in taste, some chocolate and roasty malts, chocolatey and cookie sweetness, without getting cloying. Beer remains crisp. Wow. This is simply amazing. I wondered why black IPA scores pretty high in my list of styles, but this beer shows they can be stunning.

Faathoven (104) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - DEC 30, 2016
Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is coffee, roastiness, some zesty note, hoppy in the end. The flavour is amazing: starts sweet, with chocolate, then coffee, deep roasted malts and the hops come through with a nice kick of bitterness that lingers in the throat for a long time. Fantastic mouthfeel, very creamy and silky. Full bold body. No booze at all. The best black ipa I’ve ever had so far, together with Black Malts & Body Salts by To Øl. Awesome staff!
