Bottle thanks to RW80 through European Beer Swap. Cheers, Robert! Aroma: Cascade (peach and resin), small malty side: roast, chocolate, bit of alcohol. Appearance: Dark head, high and dense, quickly dissapears with hiss, color is black. Taste: alcohol, chocolate and roast, some sweet fruity notes, low bitterness, some malty sweetness. Palate: Finish is booze and sweetness, carbonation is low, body is medium-high. I think I kept the beer to long in the fridge (but just more than 2 weeks). :/

Fin (8702) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle at Café De Koffer Groningen, Netherlands, Sunday 4th October 2015 (late afternoon sat outside) Black as yer’ ’at with a creamy textured beige head. A big BIPA but surprisingly subdued on the hoppy front, it’s hoppy but not mega hoppy, it’s a bit roasty and good malty body. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Koelschtrinker (14114) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 5, 2015
Leicht schokoladiger, intensiv röstig malziger Antrunk. Vorerst geringe Bitterkeit, mild herb, würzig. Die Schokoladigkeit steigt, alkoholische Noten sind erkennbar aber nicht störend. Mild bitter, vollmundig. Gut! 12/12/11/12/11/12

rikstar (1643) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2015
0,33l fles gedeeld met bryanvdv. Flesje opent met wat veel druk, daarna snel inschenken anders gaat er zeker wat verloren. Smaak en geur zijn vooral geroosterd van de mout. De hop is wat op de achtergrond aanwezig. Daarnaast is de CO2 iets teveel op de voorgrond om echt lekker te genieten van de smaaktonenen.

12oz bottle sent from Christos thanks to free beer week, thanks! Pours a very dark brown, night quite black with a quickly dissipating brown head, aroma has a good amount of pine and hops mixed in well with some chocolate and milk, the flavor has quite a bit of roast and malt at first with a chocolate and bitter finish at the same time, sweet yet hoppy at the same time, nailed it.

ShivanDragon (2551) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2015
flesje opent met een luide pssss. had nu direct een gusher verwacht, dat valt mee tot na het inschenken van het glas vond de inhoud van het flesje het wel ok, dat wou er namelijk ook uit... in het glas bleef alles heerlijk rustig, maar ’t flesje was een ander verhaal. schenkt zwart met veel koolzuur in de bruine kraag, grote bubbels. aroma van chocolade, den, geroosterde mouten, komt ook wat zoetig binnen. Smaken zijn behoorlijk vol van koolzuur maar erg smaakvol moet ik zeggen, veel chocolade, geroosterde mouten, den, hoppig, iets pittigs, grapefruit. redelijke body, aardige BIPA

enorm jammer van de gusher, vind dit toch een enorm gebrek hoe het bier ook mag smaken na de tijd.

Bottle. Black pour, brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and red fruit. Taste of roasted coffee, dark cacao, vanilla and fruity hoppy tones of pine and citrus. Bitter roasted finish, long full aftertaste. This is really good!

Aroma of dark fruits, roasted malts, dark chocolate, hints of tropical fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet with a medium bitter finish. Tasty Black IPA!
