Bottle, 22oz, from trade with Papsoe. A dark brown beer, lightly unclear and topped by a minimal sized off-white head. Lightly smoked, ham-like flavor with toffee and some vinous notes. Chocolate too. The flavor has some sweetness, but it’s mostly dryish. Piney hops, some grassy notes and a hint of orange peel too. Lasting finish with lots of chocolate, some coffee and ham, and a little touch of bitterness and a solid dose of pine cones. Not your average black IPA, but nice anyway. 130420 beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2013

3/1/2013. So glad to have found this. Black IPA seems misleading though. Somewhere between a Black IPA, a Stout and a Porter. Pours translucent black (deep red really) with a thick brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla. Taste is similar and more; coffee, creamy, chocolate, smoke, bitter, dark chocolate; huge and long coffee finish. Some nice lacing. Mouth feel is chewy but also thin somehow. Misleading in style, but stand-out in all other areas. madmitch76 (25321) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013

Opaque black - brown beer. Big big pale tan head. Palate is crispy with sharp minerals. Creamy dark malt - a little ’brown’ in character. Touch of caramel and super mild roast, slightly bitter. Traces of red berry fruits and pine hops. Unsweet dark chocolate. Crispy finish. Semi bitter aftertaste from both hops and roast malt. Hangs together well.
A bit of a sweet syrupy black IIPA... Its awkward yet hoppy and roasty. Not as bad as it couldve been but just mediocre. BREWMUSKCLES (2729) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2013
sloe gin fruit taste to this black brew that is caustic with an acrid finish. moderate body meanders around with low carbonation. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Plasticy and malty, odd and sweetish, but it’s wax dipped so it’s .rar amirite?
