Yorker (1466) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2013
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home (bottle #4945). Pours black with some sediment and no head. Aroma and flavour is faded hops (if that makes any sense), fruit, malt, and liquorice – with a slightly bitter finish.

Theydon_Bois (11126) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle at home, from Utobeer, 12/10/13. Pours extremely dark mahogony brown meets light black with a thin tan covering. Nose is caramel malt, hops, light pine, boozey waft, berry fruit, black forest gateaux. Taste comprises earthy hops, light roast, pine needle, berry fruit compote, cocoa dusting, brown sugars. Full bodied, slick and slightly oily, smooth on the palate, berry booze and semi aggressive earthy hopness in the last hurrah. Tasty ’imperial’ CDA. The alchohol is well tempered and this is holding up very well for over 2 years old !

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013

CarlJonas (222) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
Very dark brown. Small head. Honey, pine resin, fudge in the aroma. Slightly roasted flavour, sweet and bitter. More honey and some chocolate. Rich and smooth mouthfeel. Bit old now but still very tasty.

McNeillR (1568) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Hell fire black auburn hinge, slight head. Composting dry nose, sumptuous. Taught, zipwire bitterness throughout even three years on. Rounded malt and peppery tinge. Thin but arching tang to the finish.Big rusty amber body with boozy listless head. Coppery nose, firey. Dense oily, oxidsed boozeage slips away to floral rustiness. Crystalled throughout, keeping it steely and narrow. Terse finish, mapely

Kuulokekoira (1) - FINLAND - AUG 20, 2013 does not count
Bottle #3017, bottled on 16.05.2011. Feels more like imperial stout than black ipa. No carbonation whatsoever, pours without a foam. Aroma has some fruitiness to it, taste comes with some sweet ligorice, roasted malts and hints of coffee. Palate is nice and deep but suffers from lack of hops. Also some head would have been nice. Quite nice, not mind blowing.

Juseq (158) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has chocolate and coffee. Flavor has salty licorice with chocolate and cocoa. Not that surprising after maturing. Aftertaste and flavor has some medicine.

beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled, touch sensations on the lips, tongue y must drink it!
