Light roasted aroma of liquorice, vanilla, hops and pine needles.

Hoppy finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a pitch black with a dense light brown head. Hard roast aroma with only a hint of hops. Solid body, hard and a little harsh roasty malts while the hops don’t really add much but bitterness - and it sure ends bitter. I’d call this a Stout - simply. Hasn’t really got the good aroma hops to make this a Black IPA. 260412 Travlr (24745) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle at CaptainCougar’s local tasting, thanks! Extremely dark brown color, beige head. Aroma of burnt chocolate. Taste is licorice, burnt espresso. Nice.
Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Dunkelhopfiger Antrunk, der eher in die Richtung eines Stouts als in die eines IPAs geht. Im Mittelteil überwiegen schokoladige Noten vor dem hier schwachen Hopfen. Etwas stärker ist die Bitterkeit, die sich hier langsam aufbaut um im Nachgeschmack wirklich präsent zu sein. Hier sind schokoladige Malzigkeit und trockener Hopfen gleichauf, dezente Röstnoten passen aufgrund der Trockenheit nur bedingt. Süffiges, gut gehopftes Stout. 12/12/11/12/11/12

Black with tan head. Nose of hops and roasted chocolate malts. Taste is roasted chocolate malts, lavender, coffee and hops. Medium bodied. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 29, 2010
A: The pour is a dark brown, almost black, color with a very fluffy tan colored head and some nice sheets of lacing.
S: The primary aroma is roasted malt with some coffee notes and a noticeably acidity.
T: Like the nose, the roasted malt is the primary component along with coffee, an acidic note, and a bitter finish.
M: The body is medium with a lively and tingly carbonation.
D: Not sure if the high carbonation and acidity were due to infection, but this one just seemed a bit "off". For a black IPA, this wasn’t all that hoppy. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 30, 2012
Bottle at Papsø’s - Thanks. Black - brown head. Burned malts, coffee, nutty, ok bitterness, licorice, ok hoppy, a bit simple - but ok. Tmoney99 (14479) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Draft. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and light hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew that I would recommend to a freind.
