CacheManyHose (179) - HONG KONG - JUL 9, 2014
From Craftissimo. Smells relatively faint but very sweet - liquorice, brandy, dark and fermented fruit. Tastes of dessert wine (alcohol, sweetness), some sourness/acidity, bitter finish. Body is medium and slick. Plenty of big flavours but slightly too raisiny sweet/sour for me, esp. for a black IPA for which I expect more hop and balance.

HKdIPA (237) - HONG KONG - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Solid black pour with dissipating tan head. Roasted aroma with a bit of licorice, soy, and faint hops. Taste is crisp/sharp sour - more sour than sour hops - then roasted flavors with a mildly hoppy bitter finish. Almost more of a hoppy porter than black IPA - not bad but not great.

StevieT (609) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2014
From a bottle. So smooth for such a strong beer, rich malt flavours with a bitter chocolate and coffee aftertaste. A mild sweet aroma, dangerously drinkable, this is a great beer.

adasko (330) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Completely dark and non-transparent beer. Has a good nice white head and unbelievable lacing. Froth sticks to whole glass, from the top to the bottom.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2059) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 19, 2014
8% 880 yen or so from Asahiya. A pitch black pour with a big frothy beige head. Roasty chocolate with some hints of white grape in the nose plus subtle pine. The flavor is sweet, syrupy bitter dark chocolate lots of umami savouriness again that white grape taste appears and in the finish you get some bitterness. An interesting take on a black IPA though it is 60 IBUs it is balanced and not terribly bitter. More fruity chocolate & savoury.

mgajdaczewa (500) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 8, 2014
W aromacie są nuty chmielowe, dość świeże i orzeźwiające, ale urzeka strona słodowa, przypominająca angielskiego portera, ciemne słody, lekka paloność, nawet nuta wędzona gdzieś się przewija, do tego troszkę słodkich czerwonych owoców, bardzo ok. W smaku pełne, lepkie, goryczka średnia cytrusowo - ziołowa, dobrze zbalansowane, dobrze przykryty alkohol, pijalne. Czego chcieć więcej? Dobre piwo!

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle, Domus Birrae, Roma. Shared with Slothez over Superbowl weekend. What a great name for a beer, er fill me up barman.. Deep dark brown pour with a meek tan head. Resinous hop, chocolate and citrus present in the beak. Plenty more of the same flavour-wise alongside roasted malts and tropical fruits. Good balance and a very tasty take on the style from a first rate brewery.

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2014
On tap @ Crowbar. Almost black body with a small beige head. Aroma is nice with light roasted dark malt and pine, not much more really but it sure feels good in the nose. Sweet, roasted malt flavor, some toast, dry fruit, pine and good bitterness. Fine balanced body with a good bitter aftertaste. A nice one.

caesar (5123) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Bottled from Biernavigatie, BB 30 05 14, large sample, served in a shaker. Pours a dark brown colored beer with a big rocky light brown head. Aroma of soft roasted malts, piney hops, some grapefruit, tropical fruit. Fruity and roasted notes seem to balance quite well. Medium bitter in taste, some roast, quite some caramelly sweetness to back up the bitterness. Finishes slight dry. Body seems a bit thinnish, medium carbonation. Brewers are getting the combination and balance better and better last year(s). Same goes for this one, very decent beer.
