Aroma has an initial familiar medicinal scent that I can’t place, something hydrogen peroxide-ish. Taste is not sweet, but a nice roasty and savory taste. Holmen2 (3850) - NORWAY - FEB 23, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 23.02.15. Almost black. Pale, brown head. Aroma and taste of bitter grapefruit and fresh pine. A slight hint of liquorice. Rather good. 721Lance (82) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Big hop brew for Black IPA...matched the nice roast and bitterness. Somewhat floral aroma matched the coffee. Dry finish excellent carbonation best black IPA I have had. tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Black pour with a beautiful khaki head. Nose is roasted throughout, a little smoky, roasted malts and more dark flavors with a neath green hop. Flavor is more toast and road and darkness with liveliness of green hop and pine. Really enjoyable and I’ll miss it when it’s gone. rouhlas (3664) - GREECE - FEB 19, 2015
330ml bottle at home. Dark brown almost black color with nice dark beige head. Aroma is hoppy, herbal spicy, mint, piney, light roasted malty, caramel. Sweet and bitter taste like the aroma, mostly hoppy herbal spicy, light roasted malty when it gets warmer. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2015 Poured from 22 oz bomber. Pours black with an off white head. Aroma is fruity citrus, grapefruit & pine with a light roasted smokiness. Flavor starts off citrus with some tropical fruit flavors and finishing with grapefruit and pine hops. Then the roasted malt smokiness and chocolate flavors sneak up on the backside of this brew. Stone, why oh why would you take this beer away from us? toml219 (285) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2015

Peaches and hops dominate this ones olfactory presence. Hipsters beware, you’ll like this. It’s a fine BIPA. Rune (13186) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
One-third sample, keg at The 23 Club. Near black coloured body. Fair fawn-coloured head, mostly remaining. Smell of mid-sweet vanilla, dark fruits and grainy malts. Rich taste profile of vanilla chocolate, coffee and liquorice followed by dark fruity bitterness to a prolonged ending. Smooth and warming on the swallow. Full bodied. Delicious (Liverpool 31.01.2015).
