22oz bottle from Bertís Better Beers. Typical black color. Average head and lace. I smell hop before anything. Malty hints. Flavors of weak pine hops, malt with a real thin body. Good news is the bitterness does linger a good duration. Itís ok,.nothing special.

Thanks AirForceHops. Dark brown but not as dark as expected. 3 finger head. fades slowly. Scent: Nice balance of chocolate and maple syrup. Hint of pine cones and tangerine. Taste: a bit bland..The pacman yeast is in full effect with this one. Sort of sweet, sort of bland. Very dry almost bready finish.

Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam
Pours more dark red-brown than black, with hardly any head.
Taste is hoppy bitter, with liquorice, finishing on a pleasant light roast. It lingers in your mouth. Nice sipper.

Tap at the Aldgate. Taste lots of chocolate and pine, maybe more roasty than bitter. Some cream but pine overload. Quite nice though. Very little notes as I was a bit battered by this stage.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate and some roasted malts with a little citrus hop. The taste was malty and chocolatey with a little mild bitterness. It was a decent Black IPA.

A very tasty brew. I get a bit of coffee, chocolate, and strong hops in the taste. The smell is amazing, very strong in the hops as well. I imagine this as the perfect fall beer. Really enjoying this one.
