Review from 2012.
Strong aroma is smoky and VERY hoppy - like a good stout mixed with a double IPA. Pours an opaque chocolate brown with a very thick tan head that hangs around for a while. Flavor has a core of roast malt with a strong woody malt overtone and hints of licorice, caramel and coffee. Texture has firm body and lots of fizz and sass. If you like dark beers and hoppy beers, this one is a must!

Had on tap at Craft Beer in London, then had the good fortune of having again two weeks later at the hopleaf in Chicago. Both poured into tulip glasses

Pours a very deep black with mocha like head, which frankly had disippated quite a bit by the time it hit th bar. Very good looking beer.

Definitely some roasted malts in the smell, but the presence of pine and citrus from the hops is very forward.

Taste is where this one blows me away. It's not over creamy or thick as some other dark ales, very medium body, but the combination of dark malt flavor and heavy hops really works very well. I'm curious what hop is used, since the lingering aftertaste is as good as any I've ever had.

I don't care what you call it, black ale black IPA etc., but this is one delicious beer.

Dark brown color with creamy brown head. Aroma is really hoppy with some roasted malts in the background. Taste starts hoppy and balanced, earthy and piney. Finishes hoppy and roasty with moderate bitterness. Smooth, medium body and carbonation. Really nice example of black IPA, balanced and tasty.

Thoroughly enjoyable and easy-drinking beer. From the first appearance to the last drop, this was very satisfying and impressive. I could get used to this style. Although there is some bitterness and hoppiness, it is much less prominent than typical IPAs, with a more prominent dark fruit flavor. Some subtle roasted flavors make it more appealing as well. This also is less expensive than most Mikkeller beers, so that's a good thing too.
