Strong aroma, very toasty and roasty tast, with hints of chocolate and a nice bitternesS. great beer. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2012
Cinnamon roll in nose, with sweet syrup and hops of course. The hops are rather earthy than tropical fruity. Taste is good but way too sweet. Bitterness is also a bit low. Tasty beer but lacks in flavor profile. It’s the sweetness I guess. penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, coffee, dark chocolate, and fruit. Tastes of roasted malt, more grapefruit and pine, hint of licorice. Full and smooth with lingering bitterness. A really nicely done black IPA. finn1918 (234) - Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Pours a dark brown with a 1-finger khaki head that recedes very slowly and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is faint roasted malt that is quickly overpowered by a barrage of hops. Taste is similar: dark chocolate for a split second before a tongue-splitting hop bitterness. This is not a beer for an inexperienced beer drinker, but is guaranteed to put the hair on your chest. Excellent black IPA, and the 9.2% abv packs a punch at the end of the glass.

Dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Malty with hoppy notes. Malt, fruit, hops and bitterness. Full body with a balanced bitter after taste. tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a pretty dark brown with thin lacing. I’m a bit put off by the huge dark fruit aroma of raisins and plums, but the taste more than makes up for it. Alcohol notes aside, the flavor includes the dark fruit but also a nice load of roast malts that last into the finish without being astringent. Hops do a nice job offsetting the huge sweet malt bomb. Completely unbalanced and proud to be so! olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark liquid with notes of red, light brown head. Hoppy and malty sweet smell with some roasted notes in the background. Similar taste, both pine and fruity hops. Very nice beer. They managed the whole hoppy bitter together with roasted bitterness very nicely. Pyrmir (6094) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Heavy hop nose, flowery with weaker notes of roasted malt. Taste well balanced of dark malts, a litte burnt. Long, pleasant taste. Dazz3 (1798) - Hallsberg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Bottled. Pours black with a huge brown head. Smells black current, hoppy and abit roasted malt. Tastes creamy bitter hoppy with a similar finish.
