First rating: Big beige-brown lasting head. Mostly opaque black body goes deep dark brown at edges. Spicy roasty earthy aroma with chocolatey notes. Dry-sweet spicy earthy gooseberry taste with roasty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty earthy chocolatey aftertaste with spicy gooseberry notes. Lovely, harmonic beer with lots of flavour. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.) 6,4,7,3,13=3.3

Second rating: Big brown-beige head. Opaque black body goes deep dark red at the bottom with fast carbonation. Deep roasty tropical fruit aroma with wooden overripe berries notes. Dry-sweet roasty pineapple taste with wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry wooden lacquer and tropical fruit aftertaste with burnt dusty notes. The aroma has some jarring combinations, but it’s much more harmonic in the mouth. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.) 6,4,7,3,13=3.3

[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark amber-brown with a large mostly-lasting rocky tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma has a surprising, in a good way, amount of hops along with malt and some coffee -- mostly just hops though. (Surprising because I didn’t realize this was a Black IPA) Flavour is also really hoppy along with some roasted malt, coffee and a long moderate hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Really good, I need to get more.

kermis (6422) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2012
Bottle shared at Beer Temple. Dark brown unclear pour with a tiny tan head. Aroma dominate by grassy hops and nettles. Flavour as a foreground caramel sweetness and light malt, with massive grass coming through in the background bitterness. Medium bodies and low carbonation. Intense beer!

9/I/15 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: 11/VI/15, bottled: 11/IX/14 (2015-25) Thanks to The_Osprey for the trade!

Little hazy deep brown beer, huge creamy beige head, stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit piny, citrus, caramel, some mocha, sweet malts, cheesy touch, fruity, some strawberry jam. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of citrus, little sour, bitter hops, bit resinous. Aftertaste: soft roast, very bitter hops, resinous, citrus, bit piny, oily hops, long lasting bitterness. Very nice stuff!
