Starts like a stout, finishes like an IPA. A masterful brew with a full body and a perfectly bitter finish that lingers on the tongue and leaves you yearning for another sip.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Dark mahogany pour with a two finger beige head with great retention and lacing. The nose is classic Black IPA with great balance between the roasty malts and the hops. Lots of toffee and caramel along with piney hops, orange peel, cocoa, roasty coffee, and tangerine. The taste is rich and bold with sweet and toasty caramel malt up front, followed by juicy, piney, resiny hops along with hints of fresh roasted coffee, molasses, and some subtle chocolate. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy with incredible balance and a great bittersweet finish. Overall, this is right up there with my favorite Black IPA's.

Pours a muddy brown color with an off white head, Lace is left behind and looks like a well hopped black ale. The aroma has toffee, leather, herbal tea and candy sweetness. The taste has ample pithy citrus and pine needle sap, brown sugar, and iced tea. Nice semi sweet and bitter flavors working together, hops and Belgian yeast. Sugary, yet slightly hoppy and dry, Well rounded, well balanced dark Belgian IPA. Perhaps the best of a rare breed.

Light black in color with a murkiness when held up to light. A quarter inch of beige head is on the top. Sweet aroma of dark malt and molasses permeates the top of the glass. Thick lacing is present. The flavor is on the sweeter side with loads of sweet malt,molasses,and black licorice. There are some hops present but they are definitely in the background and give it a spruce note. The mouth is chewy and viscous. Not what I expected,but a Belgian take on this style is still a treat.

Dark brown color , good off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, hoppy citrus notes and coffee. Taste is very hoppy with notes of tropic fruits and roasted malt. Full body , moderate carbonation . Long bitterness in aftertaste. Great!
