Tap. Pours deep brown to black with a large, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee notes, citrus hops and a hint of wood. Slightly sweey flavor that ends up dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, creamy to oily text. and soft to average carb. A very nice Black IPA. jesperhammer (4874) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2014

Black with lasting, creamy, tan head.
Aroma is roast, burnt, coffee, grape fruit, pine. Taste the same. Very bitter from hops and roast. On the roasted side. Medium body+, medium carbonation but turns a Little thin on the finish.
Perhaps not thin for an IPA but as this has the taste profile of a hoppy porter, it comes out on the thin side.
Not as good as the regular. There are som dry Wood notes that I am not all that fond of. But apart from that barrel aging is far from dominant.

Bottle, thanks fonefan! Pours dark black with a very large brown puffy head that dissipates very slowly leaving nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is roasted malt, pine, citrus, a bit of vinous note. Flavor is roasty, pine, some citrus, not much barrel really, light sweet, medium bitter. Medium body, a bit creamy. Lingering bitterness and some astringence. A bit hot.

- black beer under a robust and long lasting dark beige foam; very roasted mocha aroma, hints of ashes and nuts, light woody; rounded sweet maltiness, very earthy and hugely bitter; notes oflicorice, wood and black chocolate, tar, walnuts and a hint of fruitiness - complex and pretty aggressive, very interesting
Pours a dark brown with decent head that lingers for a while. Good lacing. Aroma is hoppy and some hints of fruits. Alcohol is not present although it’s there. Also some hints of the Chardonnay are present. Body is slightly sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. Aftertaste is very strong hoppy bitterness that ends quite quickly. A very tasty and well balanced Black IPA. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 8, 2014
Flaske,375 ml. Brunsort, cremet lysebrunt skum. Dufter heftigt af vådt træ. Og let sødlig mørk chokolade. Chardonnay. Salt-lakrids. Cola-frugt? Fyldig, hårdtristet og bitter. Træ. Trods fadet og de ristede noter stadig en black ipa. Og overraskende nok næsten bedre end originalen. Ren meditation.
