33 cL bottle at home. Pours almost black with a large tan head. Aroma is quite fruity with tropical fruits, grapefruit, some roasted malts and chocolate. Taste has a bit more roasted malts upfront, tropical fruits, some chocolate, medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Pretty decent black ipa. tricksta_p (4658) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle at home, a couple of days past expiry date. Aroma is piny hops, strong pine resin, herbal and spicy notes, mint, touch of liquorice, roasted malt. Flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Not your typical Black IPA, bit awkward actually, with the mint and herbal notes, strong carbonation, not bad but a bit messy. MonsterMagnet (1453) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2016

Brune foncée, noire claire, fine mousse beige. Senteurs d’agrumes et de résineux. Bouche sur le pamplemousse et les résineux, fin de bouche brulée et astringente liée aux malts noires, comme souvent sur les black IPA. Pas mal mais pas mon style... sir__v (2629) - FRANCE - APR 23, 2016

Bottle from Ship In A Bottle.
Appearance - opaque black with a nice fluffy fawn head.
Nose - wood and plant stalk, something a bit menthol and resin generally. Not getting much chocolate or citrus.
Taste - minty as f**k. At the very back there’s something lightly creamy that might resemble milk chocolate or instant coffee.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet drying texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - where is the chocolate? Where is the citrus? allmyvinyl (10617) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2016
330ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours black with a thick ecru head. Aromas of wood, plant stalks, resin. Taste is woody, bitter, minty. Odd. Exhale is menthol! Faint creamy latte. Not getting on with this. Iznogud (3805) - CROATIA - MAR 25, 2016
