Pours a pitch black coloration with a huge, creamy head. Smells of blueberry, citrus, chocolate and pine. Taste follows the nose with a perfect balance of biscuity malts and piney hops. Notes of blueberry, citrus, chocolate, dark fruits and pine, followed by a light bitterness. Best in style, awesome black IPA that manages that balancing act between malt and hops with ease.

Dark mites, drips, black and blueberries and pineapples hop flavors come with full force over each other dying past later slipping give more layered flavors

A black forest inspired black ipa brewed with blueberries and spruce needles.
Very balanced beer. Good roasted coffee, fine grapefruit, spruce is there all along but quite delicately. Not much blueberry presence. Very drinkable stuff.

Dark colour, pouring with medium head.
Smells like roasted malt and coffee, blended with yeast.
Tastes like dark chocolate with a hint of an earthly yeast and hops, with a roasted coffee and a bitter finish.
Full bodied and dense.
A great black IPA.

Really dark brown color, almost black with creamy, mocha head. Aroma has really nice earthy, resiny hops and also some milk chocolate. Taste follows with really tasty hops and chocolate malt. Green hops, pine resin, grass and some grapefruit pith combined with roasted coffee on the finish. Medium to full bodied with really smooth mouthfeel. Black IPA is one of my favorite styles and this one is a really fine example.
