Slight gusher. Dark brown, Thick off white head. Fresh aroma, with chocolate and fruit. My first black IPA, nice combination. Hop bitterness is not dominating, good balance, though more a stout than an IPA.

Uber gusher. Poured deep dark brown with a huge, frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet berries, roast malt, chocolate. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, a bit musty and dry, with coffee grinds.

Opaque dark brown beer, ginourmous fluffy pale tan head. Bottle continued a slow gush. Palate is airy, semi dry and crisp. Thin dark malts, some roast. Touch of sweet floralness before pine hop kicks in. Light dry finish. Mellow roasty linger. Not bad.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown colour with great head and carbonation. Strong bitter/hoppy aroma, some fruity notes there. Red fruity flavour, nice sweet/bitter balance. Nice body, goes down warm and smooth.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołw, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. I was expecting resin over chocolate, while this one smells actually very fruity and sweet. Lots of orange, a bit less peach, flowers, a solid, roasted and chocolatey malty base, some cherries and, well, some coniferous notes but its more thuja than pine. By contrast, there is almost no sweetness at all in the taste. At first there comes a malty fullness, before the whole turns bitter, astringent and bone dry. Unbalanced. Well, at least its got some chocolate in the aftertaste.

DutchMark (352) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2014
Ridiculously large brownish head. After pouring one fifth of the glass the rest was full of this thick froth. Ok black ipa but not great. Flavor is of burned malts with some caramel and is mildly bitter. The alcohol is well hidden. Negative: flavor lacks depth, is a bit thin and fades fast. Not realy an ipa. More a hoppy bock. Positive: not sweet, pleasant texture and easy drinkable.

Bosbouw (2620) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Mooie chocolade bruine kleur met een volle lichtbruine kraag. Ruikt fruitig, koffie, chocolade. Smaakt bitterzoet, chocolade, maar ook iets fris.

Aroma: Appearance: Taste: Palate: Overall: Seeing as the beer just exploded over a 5m radius, I cannot give it good marks! Severely overcarbonated.
