Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2012
Poured from a bottle at Ølfestival 2012, One Pint exhibition stand, thanks to Skinnyviking for a taster. Dark amber coloured body, tiny beige head. Smell of sweaty hops with discreet malty sweetness. Malt-fruity flavour containing herbal hops and slightly roasted malts. Bittering malty endnotes. Satisfying (Copenhagen, 10.05.2012).

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
2013-05-31. Dark brown body, creamy tan head. 4+ Aroma is interestingly fruity, light notes of malt and green vegetation. 6++. Flavour is similarly fruity, light bitterness throughout, mild malt has some dusty caramel undertones and something vaguely leafy and herbal that I can’t put my finger on. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Okay. Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

Fin (9582) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle picked up by my dad in a Eataly, Genoa, late Sept/early Oct 2013. consumed at home Saturday 12th October 2013 Pours black with off-white head. A very hoppy nose with some resiny pine in particular showing. Mmmhh.. this is a tasty decent black IPA, there are flavours of caramel and roasted malts coming through but this is very hoppy and the finish is bitter and dry. Really like this.

JorisPPattyn (9470) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Draught Very fine & dense, good pale cream head over ruby-brown beer. Dry hopbales, ureum, hessian sacks, immortelles. Roasted, meaty, with coloured malts and subdued, but present hops. Finish is bonedry. Woody, straw. Quite slick, medium bodied, well-carbonated feel. Very dry-authentic, but it misses a bit of character. A bit, mind.

KyotoLefty (9304) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 15, 2012
Draught at Open Baladin Roma. Dark brown with orange tints and a high, fine head that went quick to lace. Huge catpiss and citrus nose with light chocolate and caramel, minerals and spice. Flavor of catpiss and chocolate, light coffee. Clean, full, and nice.

sebletitje (9268) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Draft @ ML Fontainas, Italian Fest Sept ’14. Ambrée/acajou léger, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme fruité modéré noir, malté en rétro, le tout complété par un houblonné agrumes; pamplemousse et un léger malt grillé. Palais reste similaire avec un fruité noir très léger, mal cara presque crystal dark, ce fruité noir devient dominant avec le temps. Je note une petite touche liquoreuse au fini avec un fleuri houblonné sec rappelant les feuilles de thé. Fruité prend un certain regain ajoutant une pointe de pamplemousse. Mais en définitive, ce n’est pas une blakc ipa.
