Bosskie (885) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2016
Very dark, brown rather than black, weak white head. Smell is milk chocolate and leather, hint of citrus. Some wood and flowery bitterness. Taste is full and bitter, creamy and with a sticky finish. Full. Lots of cacao creaminess balanced very well against a crisp bitterness. Nice!

kaserov (754) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 11, 2016
Color marrón oscuro, turbio, pantanoso, grumoso, repleto de restos de fermentación o sabe dios qué, con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (muy buena retención, se pega a las paredes del vaso creando costras y grumos interesantes). Aroma extraño, a malta y, quizá, algo de caramelo. Quizá la tomé un poquitín más fría de lo que debería y por eso no capté mucho aroma. Sabor ultra complejo. En boca es dulce, maltosa, con algún toque lejano de café. El final es amargo y muy seco. Muy seco. Me encanta ese final y la sensación que deja en boca entre trago y trago. Hay algo herbal por ahí también, pero esta cerveza se me queda grande. Es de esas que, aun disfrutándola mucho, me da la sensación de no haber captado ni un 20% de lo que hay en la botella. Muy recomendable. Ahora, eso sí, con la categoría de Black IPA tendría mis dudas. Y no la toméis muy fría.

Muggus69 (2494) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 06/08/17 Deep near-black body, creamy beige head persists. Not overly prominent nose - roasty malt notes of chocolate & licorice, citrusy sort of hops in the works, touch of grassiness. Full body, slick with hops, some chewiness & structure. Some chocolatey malt sweetness upfront on the body, biscuity, toast, slight caramel malt with some hops in the works, not overty, but notes of citrus & stonefruits with a firm bitterness & lingering grass. Pretty damn good!

Large bottle. Pours black with a tall, massive, tan head. Excellent aroma of coffee, chocolate, chili and alcohol. Great palate, full body, slick, average carbonation, bitter finish. Flavour is very balanced, though heavy bitter with sweet tones. Fantastic beer.
