Just to clarify, this is a Double Black IPA (which I forgot to mention when I uploaded the beer into the RB database). Looks good; pitch black with nice head. Smells pretty good too; hoppy and malty. Tastes like it smells, only better. Nice on the palate too. Pretty good stuff! oyamac (30) - Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Citrus of a normal IPA but with a very, very faint smoke in the back. Black as night, looks like a stout. Citrus and hops of a normal IPA, but the finish is peppery. Good beer

12oz bottle. Courtesy of Derek for this... Pours deeper cherrywood reddish stouty pout, lesser intense at the eyes and topped with a thin film of medium khaki head... Aroma of a pure smooth amalgamation of piney citrus fruity profile while still being equally measured with a moderate cocoa roast forwardness. Both seem to balance each other nicely... Favors are equally the same with more of a solid earthy body offering. Hops stand tall but intermingle well with the roasted cocoa notes. A lot more balanced than a lot of the darker ipas seem to be. A touch boozy and phenolic on the backend but solid all around where there is a nice balance between malt and hops - big but a nice flavor profile nonetheless.

Bottle from Suchy3! Pours black with a nice slight tan head. Big, fresh hop aroma with a nice roasted malt balance and a bit of bubblegum on the back. Taste is fresh grass, citrus, bubblegum, roasted malts and a slight hit of chocolate. Everything really comes together nicely on the palate and lasts for awhile. A very well-rounded black IPA with a slightly hefty ABV that doesn’t get in the way. saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle. Nice tan head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, coffee, chocolate, hops and nuts. More stout than Black IPA, but very good indeed.

S: Dark Mildly Roasted Chocolate Malts, Bitter Coffee
T: Bitter Coffee, Piney, Dark Chocolate Malts

Overall, way too much coffee and chocolate flavor and not enough of the hop profile...but that is a personal preference, not to fault the beer.
