Maris (969) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 24/6/2014. Pours a clear dark amber with a small head. The nose features a combo of fruity hops with some mild roasty notes. The flavour follows suit with some moderate roasty and chocolate malt set off against some sweet fruit and a firm, satisfying hop kick Has a medium body and fizzy carbonation. A very solid, enjoyable black IPA from a consistently good brewer.

BitchPls (537) - FINLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Murky brown beer with a beige foamy head. A lovely and fresh fruity aroma. Medium body. Grape fruity hops. Sweet caramel in taste. A lovely hoppy dark ale.

ALLOVATE (2356) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2014
Hazy, midnight brown with very little life to be seen. Head took a rough pour to evoke but lapses quickly back to a few loose suds of beige that cling desperately to the meniscus. Strong note of sarsaparilla, burnt sugar, camphor and eucalypt on the nose amongst a normal grapefruit base. Mineral-like, chalky mouthfeel with soft, peppery carbonation. Juicy grapefruit back-end that is also bordering on Semillon wine that leaks into the moderately bitter, fruity swallow. Good length; smoky aftertaste is pleasant with the fruity, vinous overtones. Nice, nutty, piney mix mid-palate with a hint of burnt sugar and grapefruit up front. Nothing extraordinarily unique of this one. It is actually quite softly spoken all in all. Very sessionable but lacking in depth. Solid. (33cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

mkel07 (3141) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2014
330ml bottle from The Wine Emporium 231213. Easy drinking this one, gives down well and doesn’t strip your palate. Nice and hoppy.

Draught. Deep brown liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, mango, bread, weed and light coffee. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of pine, citrus and mango. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. OK.

Vaiz (3298) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle in Italy. 5.8 % abv. Aroma is full of floral hops, resin, caramel and citrus. Flavor is bitter, fruity, slightly spicy and with a load of hops. Thick body, heavy carbonation. Impressive brew.

Bottle. Brown pour with an off white head. Lots of pine, roast, notes of chocolate, fruity sweetness, grapefruit, and moderate bitterness. My bottle says 5.8% abv. Good.

Pours very dark with a beige head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, caramel, chocolate, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a moderate hoppy finish. Nice.
