Borresteijn (6491) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2012
50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black colour, creamy light beige head. Aroma of citrus hops, light pine, roasted malts, light smoke, coffee, chocolate. Flavour is roasted malts, light chocolate, coffee, all very smooth, nice citrus flavours, grapefruit, smooth bitter finish. Reminded me a lot of De Molen Stout & Hop. Medium to fullbodied, soft carbonation. One of the first BIPA’s I thoroughly enjoyed. And another Buxton winner.

500ml bottle @ Black Door, Helsinki

BBE May 2013 - Pours pitch black with a nice smooth light brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, chocolate, licorice, some fruity hops and hints of berries. Taste is quite heavily roasted with some chocolate and coffee notes and some citrusy, fruity hoppiness. Finish is slightly salty and fruity with some light roasty coffee notes. Nice, well balanced, roasty black IPA.

Not a bad one but also not relly hitting what I like. Thick, strong with some coffee and roasted malt. Classy classic.

Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle (33cl): Served in a shaker at 13 degrees Celsius: Medium sized beige head. Deep dark black brown beer. Aroma is incredible yet smooth and not exaggerated hoppy with some nice roasty tones. Very well balanced! Flavour is more or less the same as the aroma but than with more fruit, bitters, resin, some sweets, little pine tones and floral tones. Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, herbal and floral tones, light grassy, very hoppy and a toast sprinkle. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Serious delicious beer!
