Marduk (3371) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 1, 2015
Tap @TCBW2015. Pitch black color. Small size, beige head, stays. Fart, roast, rye, ashy, citrus in aroma. Not really good aroma. Grainy, roasted malts, fine hops, cocoa in taste. Mix of mellow roast and hops in aftertaste. Nice one!

Ktwse (2322) - SWEDEN - APR 1, 2015
Pours dark brown to black with two fingers of light tan head. Aroma of coffee, pine, grapefruit, light chocolate and wood. Taste is initial sweet and slightly chocolate-y followed by a rich blend of coffee and blood orange bitter. Very nice. Light yet creamy body with soft carbonation.

thorongil2 (1476) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
(Bottle) clear very dark brown colour with a tall brown head; aroma of stewed fruit, peach, dried lychee; balanced flavour with a long, medium bitter finish, so flavour full it is almost a DIPA

suurjuust (1501) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2015
Brown beer, tan head. Nose is hops and roast, burned notes, citric hops, lemons. Flavor is hops forward, grainy-malty notes are more subdued, some roast, hops and roast in the finish. Pretty drinkable.

nihtila (1167) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2015
9.1.2015. Almost black, big head. Aroma is strong and intense. Plenty of roasted and burnt malts, lots of piny hops. Taste is very malty and piny hops, roasted, maybe coffee. BIPA on the malter side.

Draft taste sample at Alvinne Craft Beer Festival 2015 day 2 (07.03.2015) Vichte Belgium.Jeca, Alberto and Boban.Pour it dark color with small white head.On the nose roasted malt.Taste and aroma of roasted malt, not so good, hops are so killed in this situation, to roasted I think.

OOKPIKABLE (153) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Pours brown with an abundance of light brown head. Aroma of biscuit, malt, citrus, pine, cocoa and root beer. Tastes of same: complex, smooth and sweet: am i mixing my senses if i say it both looks like and tastes like a rootbeer float? One of my faves.

probstblueribbon (3182) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
330 ml bottle from LCBO via my bro, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep clear brown with a full tan head. Aroma: Strong resinous and piney hops, a little roasted malt, some caramel/toffee, quite nice. Palate: Medium+ body, moderate carbonation. Flav.: Pine that is almost raw...like chewing on a tree, eucalyptus, faint roasted malt, resin, less enjoyable than the nose, but still decent; dry with pretty good bitterness and a long, resinous, very evergreen finish.

Quite the BIPA! I could handle a second bottle.

Buongiorgio00 (933) - - MAR 19, 2015
Black ipa esplosiva, con una carica di luppoli fruttati che si intreccia perfettamente col tostato dei malti, arricchito da note di cioccolato e caffé. Completa, elegante, molto molto più che buona.
