Growler. Amber with a modest pale beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, toast, a hint of chocolate. Truly bittersweet - no separate sweetness and bitterness, but lingering grapefruit and pine after sticky breadcrust and a little chocolate depart. Chirpy and engaging.

On tap at Bir & Fud. Actually not that black! Clear deep amber beer. Little off white head. Strong Nelson Sauvin cats piss nose. Softish palate. Piney sweetish Nelson with a little with a little mixed fruit. Blackcurrant. An interesting take on the style.

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.

maneliquor (2786) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Dark murky brown pour with a small ram head and nice lacing. Nose shows burnt and ashy malts with bitter chocolate and citrus. Quite bitter through the taste. Dark chocolate with hints of citrus zest and charcoal notes. Heavily roasted almost burnt tones throughout. A little over carbonated but other than that quite pleasing

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
In short: A very hoppy (piney) and well malted (nutty, caramel) Black IPA. Good beer.
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Cloudy mahogany body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: The hop-dominated nose is very scented-pine-tree with resinous undertones. Decent mouthfeel with medium body, texture a bit chewy, medium carbonation. Taste is nutty caramelized cereals. Almonds and an enormous hops presence that tastes like freshly cut pine-tree. A clean and crisp bitterness with only light resinous notes. A good Black IPA. I’m not sure what a hoppy cat is, but I love cats and I love living with a cat and I love my cat, all the time it spends grooming itself and vomiting makes me feel like I’m living with a supermodel.

6% draft glass at Rokko Diner. A very dark brown with a bit of a reddish quality to it with a beige head & a hoppy citrus & mild funk aroma. The taste is medium-full bodied, citrus hoppy then rich dark malts with a touch of chocolate. Quite nice
