COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh pine and citrus hops meet roasted malts. We think it’s all the things a Black IPA should be.

Benzai (8365) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle @ home. Opaque black color, full sized creamy light brown head that lasts for a long time and leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, fruityness, mango, pine, pineapple, tropical fruits, slightly melon and peach. I miss roastyness, it’s lovely, but I want roastyness mixed with hoppyness in a Black IPA. Nevertheless, lovely aroma. Taste is malts, lots of hops, perfect bitterness, nicely fruity. Oh a lovely lovely beer, but imo this is not a blavk IPA, because it doesn’t have enough roasted malts. The thing is, I really love this beer and actually don’t want to say anything bad about it. It’s absolutely delicious, but as a black IPA, imo it misses roastyness. Still, don’t leave it in the store, delicious stuff!!

Picked this bottle up half price at Bierkoning in Amsterdam in 2014. Expired, but still exceptional. Pine crispness with some impressive roasted character.

Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle: Batch BICC13.01: Served in a Chouffe glass: Dark brown pour. Light brown medium to bigger sized foamy head on top of an almost pitch black colored beer. Aromas of pine, resin, pine needles, citrus, roast, malt roast, hint of some liquorice, hop flowers, some wilder yeast and floral roast. Crispy fruit tones overpower the light roast tone. Very very nice! Flavours of hop fruits like citrus, pine apple, grapefruit, resin, hope flowers, something light sticky hoppy ish, roast, bitters, floral tones, some yeast, bark roast, some light liquorice tints, herbs, light plant tones, slight hint of something sulphurish (it’s so light that it’s not irritating as one would think) an some wood roast ish tones. Mostly the crispy hop fruit, resin and bitter floral tones with a light roasty edge that mix in perfectly! Aftertaste of resin, bitters, hop bitters, light herbal and some hop flowers with a light roasty edge overall. Low to lightly medium carbo, creamy close to silky ish mouthfeel, full body and a creamy light watery texture. Crisp hop fruit and resin, some roast, a good bitterness. Very balanced and easy drinkable. Very enjoyable!

33 cL bottle at home, gusher. Pours hazy dark brown with a large tanned head. Nice arome with the right mix between the chocolaty malts and the fruity hops. Taste has chocolate, malts, red fruits, mango, some earthy notes and a medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice stuff.

markextrae (1036) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
bottle at home. poured a slight hazy black colour with a huge tan head. chocolate malts, roast, milk chocolate, pines, earth tones, bitterness. taste of grapefruit, citrus, lemon peel. this could be such a great black ipa. but for me the bitterness has the overtone ins this beer. should be a lot better if they used a bit more chocolate and malts
