Cask handpull at William IV Birthday Bash 2011. Very dark brown beerwith thin lasting beige head. Can smell the hops from it on the table. Decent hops in mouth some ok choc. Not overly roasty. Light choc notes then a fizzing hoppy bitterness on the finish. Decent.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy dark brown with an orange hue and a dense and creamy beige leaving some lacework. Heavy hops in the nose combined with some licorice. Medium body, licorice dominates, heavy roast and a very bitter finish. Neat alright. 200312

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.

Idiosynkrasie (3700) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 26, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Fruity and bitter hop aroma has notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, citrus, cautious hints of dark chocolate. Taste is bitter hoppy, citrusy, slightly fruity; cautious dry, roasty dark malty undertones; in the disappointing finish unpleasantly flat bitter.

lusikka (6176) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of roasted malts, floral hops, blackcurrant and passion fruit. Flavour of strong roasted malts, burnt wood, floral hops, rubber, sweet juiciness and pungent salty licorice. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and rather high carbonation. Finish is very bitter and roasty with surprisingly strong saltiness. Saltiness disturbs, but otherwise a strong black IPA.

johndoughty (3937) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Well bottled and pleasant but a bit too bitter for my taste. If it wasn’t I would probably have scored it higher. I am still struggling with the concept of a black IPA-the key to this confusion is the P for pale. Still quite a nice beer though.
