The beer pours a translucent light coca-cola colour with a generous light tan coloured head which lasts several minutes. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, weak grapefruit, and grassy notes. The mouthfeel is full bodied, with average carbonation. The flavour is coffee, chocolate milk, and roasted malt. This is a decent porter or stout, but aside from a faint grapefruit aroma, and maybe some citrus peel flavour (both which can be found in overhopped stouts and porters) there is nothing to suggest this is a black IPA. NOTHING!

#1 Review by Chopz from Cantley, Canada
Score: 2.5 | Aroma 5 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 5 | Flavor 5 | Overall 5 |
Pours a copper colour with an amber highlight. The head is frothy, light beige, with average retention and some good foamy lacing. The aromas are quite unexpected at first with some sweaty sock sourness and some crazy sweetness with hints of nuts. Eventually, this calms down to show roasted malts and coffee notes. The taste is a little too sweet for a black IPA. Not much sign of hops in here ?? Chocolate malts. Ok, some light hoppiness does start showing up, but nothing for this style. Way too sweet, like coffee with way too much sugar. Like, when we were young and starting to drink coffee. Not cool anymore.
