4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Earthy hop aroma with a little spicy-ness. Initial sweetness, followed by some citrus and spicy hop, with a firmly roasty and bitter finish. Staunch flavours but balanced well with nothing OTT.
13/20 nice fresh tasting porter - almost like a black ipa, big taste, perfect abv shoestring (435) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2017
Nice looker. Deep tan head . Starts ok but just lacks depth for me. Liked it but wanted it to go deeper into chocolate and cocoa. Just to much tartness for me to really love it. flying_pig (1685) - SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2017
330ml bottle from Home Bargains (£0.89):Cunningham (8526) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2017
This one was a beer that definitely started well, pouring with quite a nice body & head before the nose came through with some subtle hops, pine & even some light tropical notes towards the end; there was a few darker malts & earthy touches at this point to though. Come the taste the beer decided to go in a different direction with cocoa & chocolate flavours dominating alongside some coffee & a few hints of sweetness nearer the end.
Black color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a smooth carbonation level. Creamy texture. Ok balanced sweetness. Coffee, roast, fruity and some chocolate in the flavor. Nice tasty beer, but not an black ipa.Wixie (694) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2017

Van 't vat. Zwart bier met ecru schuim. Geur: geroosterde mout, licht aards, noterig. Smaak: koffie, licht zoet, korst van goed gebakken brood. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter, kruidig. Black IPA? Een zeer zachte dan! Het is gewoon een aangenaam drinkbaar zwart bier. Beerhunter111 (23265) - Beerland, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 dark grassy beer, good strong flavour, rich chocolate colour with pale head Beer5000 (6821) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2017
Bottle. Unclear dark brown body with a small, lacing beige head. Distinct aroma of dark, medium roasted malt, grassy hops and light fruit. Flavor is dark roasted malt with grassy bitterness, some fruit and a hint of cooked vegetables. Medium body and average aftertaste. Decent but a bit ordinary and a little negative feelings for the vegetable part.
