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

47,3 cl bottle @ Timo A
Canned ~04/2016
Aroma has licorice and grassy hops. Also some ash. Flavour has licorice, ash, pot coffee, very dark chocolate and minerals. Also nettles. Hides the ABV well, could work even better as fresh.

Canned says something 2016, couldnt read the month. black color, rather big coffee colored head. smells licorice, earthy, light coffee, cocoa, bit old hoppy, light exotic fruit. nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes creamy, of coffee, bit ashy, tobacco, earthy, licorice, light pines, hints of exotic fruits, light caramel, bitter chocolate. finishes lightly bitter with notes of licorice, earthy, light pines and bitter chocolate. very lovely beer, didnt get too excited by the smell but taste is very smooth, very lovely creamy. more stoutish than black ipa, misses some hops (but could be also age here). Overall lovely beer. 7, 4, 8, 3, 16

Smells of hops, coffee, camembert and orange. On the palate orange, citrus and grapefruit. Finish is a strong hoppy bitterness with lots of coffee, but it is very harmonious and not in conflict like some black IPAs are. Alcohol very discreet as far as nose/taste goes. Very well balanced, complex and still quite easy to drink if youre into some bitterness. Like it!

Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2017
(Nickel Brook Malevolent Black Imperial India Pale Ale) Can at Anticarnaval tasting. Black coloured body, half a finger of thick, dark beige head on top, with good retention. Aroma has milky chocolate, good hop presence, citrus. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, citrus, orange. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Great.
