visionthing (4829) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2016
On tap at Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Hazy dark, dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with dark fruits, chocolate, pine and hints of citrus. Moderate to medium sweet, fairly mild flavours, but balanced between the hoppy and roasty ones. Not the most memorable, but a tasty and easy to drink BIPA.

biirusaikou (2585) - - JAN 8, 2016
Draught at Popeye. Quite a decent iba, orange and choclate dominate, notes of coffee and licorice, fairly bitter finish. Baird seems quite solid with this style in general, good stuff.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - SEP 23, 2015
(Found note from 2 Nov, 2012) Very dark brown, opaque like a Porter. Mild roasted malts, treacle, vinous, a bit of mineral salt, rather thin. Sadly, it is lacking and "stand out" qualities, not very impressed with this one.

JohnRMurdoch (4407) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2014
On tap @ Popeye, Tokyo. Dark brown, cola like, not much head. Hoppy aroma. Mild woody hop flavour. Light smooth cola aftertaste. A bit thin for a black IPA.

gyllenbock (7985) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
On tap at Popeye, August 2013. Almost black with a small head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, licorice, some grape and hops. Fairly light body on this one and medium carbonation. An ok one.

jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft at Popeye, 07/05/2013. Didn’t realize this was brewed by Baird. Dark brown pour, light highlights, some hazy foam on the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is rich chocolate with dark roast, blending nicely with piney hops, light toffee sweetness counterbalances. Taste is rich caramel and chocolate malts, slight sweetness, roast coffee, citrus and light piney hops, orange rind, spicy bitter finish. Medium body, nice carbonation falling just short of creamy. Nice, glad to have tried.

Black colour with a beige head. Quickly vanishing lacing. Tastes a lot like a stout. Coffee, chocolate, some bitterness.

Wombata (620) - Kobe, JAPAN - MAR 16, 2013
Batch #112--great batch according to Chris. Aroma: grassy hop, some coffee and bitter chocolate aromas. Palate: dry Flavor: mirrors the aroma--grassy hop, coffee and bitter chocolate. Comment: Fortunate to have Chris Poel talk me through this--he aimed for dryness by keeping the malt at a low temperature so most of it converted to alcohol, otherwise, the sweetness would interfere with the hops.
