35.5cl shared bottle at home from Biernavigatie.nl. Body is clear dark brown, head is big, tan, rocky fizzy, average lasting, good lacing. Nose is light citric, flavor is grapefruit, roasted malt, cocoa, old wood. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Finish is long lasting light roasty medium to heavy hoppy bitter, slightly watery sidetaste. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation. Easy, quite hoppy, not bad. ciocanelu (2601) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 4, 2016
Dark brown color with light brown head. Aroma is somehow herbal, like some sort of plant extract. Taste is a bit smokey, dusty, slightly sweet and roasty at first but gets bitter on the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. Body is quite light and well carbonated. Alcohol is present but I wouldn’t have guessed it’s as strong as it is. It’s ok but I wouldn’t drink it again. Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle: Chuffe glass:
Large fluffy creamy beige brown head.
Dark brown beer.
Aroma is very hoppy with a light dose of roast. Fruity and flowers with citrus and a dark part. Nice!
Flavour is also quite hoppy with a subtle roastyness. Good strong bitterness.
Aftertaste is bitter with some fruity tones. Good.
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied.
Good stuff! Bosbouw (2932) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2015

Pours a rich dark brown with a small head, but the head is pretty dense. Aroma of floral hops and citrus. Flavor is more stout than IPA. Roasty and sweet at first with a nice hop kick on the back end. Definitely lots of roasted grains in this one. Very smooth in the mouth and I would not have guessed that this beer is 8.2% ABV. Pretty good if you are looking for a black IPA that is farther toward the stout end of the spectrum. JaKeAFC (1155) - ITALY - APR 11, 2015
35 cl bottle in NY. Dark brown color, thick creamy brownish head, strong hoppy nose. Aroma resempbles an IPA with grapefruit, caramel and spices, backed by a dark toasted presence. Strong hops completes the picture. Body is full, thick texture, heavy one. A shot in the dark.

Draft->shaker. Deep brown with moderate tan head. Chocolate and roasted malts with some earthy and citrus hop notes in a messy combination. More of a porter than a black IPA, and not well executed. GIJOE (1220) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours almost black. Frothy tan head. Moderate lacing. Nose is mildly hoppy; citrus notes. Taste is on the bitter side, but some orangey citrus sweetness comes through. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Good brew.
