The beer pours a translucent dark mahogany colour with a generous tan coloured head that lasts several minutes and creates a lot of lacing. The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and dish soap. I don’t detect any citrus, coconut, or rhubarb. So, not a typical Black IPA. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is more akin to a thin porter/stout as I’m not getting a whole ot of the rhubarb or coconut in this. This isn’t a black IPA to my mind, and not even a fruited stout/porter. Not something I would want to drink regularly.

#1 Review by Chopz from Cantley, Canada
Score: 3.4 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 6 | Overall 6 |
Pours a copper colour with a big creamy-frothy warm-beige head, great retention and thick creamy-foamy lacing. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, nuttiness, leafy notes and hints of fruits. The taste is a mix of the fruitiness from the rhubarb, bitterness from the IPA hops and roasted malt base. The hoppiness and fruit do seem to fight each other. Not feeling much of the coconut, as so much else going. I love black IPAs, I love fruit beers, but this is not one I would go back to.
