CraftBeerNick (1001) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle at home on a miserable Sunday, 23rd September 2012, pours a huge soft head that keeps on growing, nice hoppy aroma, taste is delicious and rich, like a kernel black ipa, but richer and softer in mouth, nice stuff

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle from King William IV. Pours murky brown, almost no head. Smells sweet glue- is this bottle off? Do I even dare to taste it?Sour fruit taste, hints of glue, yoghurt, cherries, definitely gone sour. Is it fair to rate a beer based on a bottle gone off? Undrinkable.

Bottle. It pours a dark reddish brown body and a dense, finger-thick light beige colored head. The aroma is mostly on the fruity, hoppy side, as it should be, with a faint roasted touch in the back. Resins, green pine cones, citrus peel and some grapefruit. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with some roasted hints in the far back, and piney, grapefruity flavors up front. It’s full-bodied, with a nice carbonation, finishing bitter and hoppy. Certainly one of the best black IPA’s I’ve had, really tasteful and dangerously easy drinkable. 111229

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Fairly deep black appearance with a light brown head. Fairly roasty malty, chocolate, a bit floral/piney hoppy aroma. Somewhat citrusy, roasty malty, chocolate, light coffee flavor. Pretty decent Black IPA.

VsXsV (2455) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown/black opaque liquid with medium to big off-white/light tan head. Aroma of grass, citrus, tropical fruit, coffee, some light ash and lots of Citra hops. Really reminds me of a BIPA I’ve brewed myself. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of grassy hops and roasted malt. Medium bodied with medium to high bitterness. Nicely hoppy.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
Fad: Sortbrun klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er meget humlt, med masser af citrus og en del eksotisk frugt. Smagen er igen humlet men nu med en del brændte noter. Fornem øl men ikke min stil. Enten det ene eller det andet.
