Bottle shared in London - picked up in VT. Pours black-brown with a frothy khaki head. The nose has grapes, moderate roast, dry cocoa. Light to medium sweet flavor with dried citrus, burnt toast, cocoa. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Decent finish, some baking cocoa, good roast, dry grapefruit, burnt grass and pine. Good effort. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2013

Very good black IPA, alcohol content is 10%, but a well balance beer, so you won’t notice it. In all, I did enjoy this brew

Purchased at City Market / Onion River Co-op in Burlington.
Strong hop aroma and full bodied black IPA.
Hop is dominated in the aroma and black malt and coffee note background.
Flavor is also hoppy, but substantial malt body from roasted malt and caramel malt. Smooth and clean taste.
The alcohol is 10% but not feels so high alcoholic character. Sammy (12205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Decent Black IPA. Book roast aromas, its great. A lot of citrus flavour, some spice in the finish. Carbonation is right there. A ve
ry large beige bubbly head.
Thanks for bringing back, Radek.

Bottle shared thanks to Scott at VCL Super Bowl. Pours out black with a small white head. Aroma is of dark toasty malts, light syrupy booze, citrus hops. Taste is a nice balance of dark toasty malts, light chocolate, citrus hops and a light syrupy sweetness with an overall well hidden ABV. dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2013
22oz bomber shared by Scott during the Suoerbowl. Poured a dark black body with a smaller to average sized tight foamy light beige head. Aroma was floral and earthy with some sweet chocolate syrup, a touch of green veggies and lightly burnt toast. Medium bodied with lighter carbonation that finishes almost creamy. Flavor is actually a bit better then the aroma with notes of chocolate, lightly burn toast, nut shells, citrus rinds and a hint of spiceyness. Overall a pretty decent brew.
