Bottle shared thanks to Scotty001. Almost black with beige head. Lots of roasted malts, espresso, dry cocoa powder, light smoked meats, some light lime and grapefruit, soft wild flowers and herbs. Taste is mainly roasted bitter with a touch of sweet malts. Medium bodied with a bit of a dry feel. Quite nice. deanso (10150) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - AUG 19, 2015

Poured deep dark brown, beige head. Aroma of chocolate and toasted malt. Medium body, flavour of the aroma, light coffee. colui72 (1060) - HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2015
When a Porter meets a a Black IPA. The porter dominates without doubts. The appearance is a porter-like black with beige head. A big creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, as well as its taste, which adds caramel and hops. Medium bitter finish, which I guess is the intent of being described as a black IPA. Good beer anyway.

Bottle. Darkly coloured black beer with a very strong light brown coloured head. The aroma is deeply roasted, and the flavour is very deeply roasted with bags of bitterness and a slight espresso coffee feel. Overall a nice very strongly flavoured porter.

4/15/15. Bottle thanks to blomster, I believe. Dark brown pour with a fizzy khaki head, overcarbed. Light citrus aroma, pine, caramel, roasted black malts, coffee, light chocolate. Citrus and pine hop character, chocolate and coffee malts. Not bad. allmyvinyl (10723) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours opaque dark brown with a thick tan head. A touch over-carbonated. Aromas of chocolate, orange, pine. Taste is bitter, woody, light roast, faint chocolate. Bitter orange & pine finish. Rolfarild (210) - NORWAY - JUL 6, 2015
Black with a shortliving head. Aroma of cocoa and coffe. Taste coffe, licorine, vanilla and figs. The bitterness comes in the aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel, but dry in the aftertaste. BrewTom (660) - - JUL 4, 2015
A hoppy porter rather than a black IPA. Deep roasty tones well balanced with a load of earthy & citrus hops.
