Berghoeve Donkerbruin Vermoeden, bottle, 330 ml. Into a big tulip. ABV 6% Opens with a slight hiss and after I pour in in the glass a huge brown head forms, while the beer in the bottle starts gushing slowly. The head is very thick and it takes ages to collapse. When it does, a thick lacing has been left behind. Colour of the beer is a very dark brown and a bit murky, at first, at least. Aroma of citrus on the front, chocolate and some roasted malts coming from the back. The taste offers the same expierence, some citrus at first and quickly the roasted malts are taking over. Less chocolate now but it’s still there. A bit peppery too every now and then. Medium thin body, okay carbonation, on the low side. Overall not bad, I would prefer it more hopped forward instead of the roasted malts.

WillemsUrenkel (449) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2013
0,33 l bottle, bought directly at the brewery. Pours very dark red brown in the glass, a very huge tanned head, gushing. From the distance melon on the nose, directly over the glass toffee and dark chocolate. Starts with darker chocaolate, combined with licorice. Medium floral. A little bit flat in the aftertaste, herb and hints of plastic, rough. Interesting but not my favourite of this brewery.

Bottled BB 06/2014, tnx bierkoning!
Dark brown color, huge off-white/brownish head. Cardboard, licorice and berries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Licorice, grassy hoppyness but also some harsh grainy-kind of flavors, ash and burned malts. Not very balanced black IPA.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle@Home. Mainly cacao aroma. Brown, beige head, good lace. Chocolate, cacao, herbal, very bitter. Medium body. Flavourful but more a hoppy porter than a black IPA.

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Speciaal Bier Winkel in Bodegraven. I don’t see any date on the bottle & this is a BIPA… Brilliant name. Dark brown beer, murky, vanishing soapy beige head. Nise full grapefruit hops in the nose, also cocoa, coffee grounds, light ash & burned toast. Cocoa powder taste, very powdery feel, burned toast, light ash, coffee ground, chocolate mixed with lovely grapefruit & touch pine resin hops, lots of them. No integration between the parts, the beer is still very lovely? Very powdery, too high carb. body. Flawed but very nice to drink.

Purchased this from a new bottle shop in Bodegraven, Speciaal Bierwinkel? Consumed this at Camping Het Rieven, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Sunday 29th September 2013 Hugely foamy, light tan but the colour of the beer is dark brown. Some dark bitter treacle, a little molasses maybe, I know that this is a black IPA but there are other things here as well, some roastiness, its hoppy but its got a lot going on. I like this A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Decent Black IPA. Smooth balance of hops and dark roasted malts. A bit too timid for my taste.
