330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, almost black with a beige head. Nice aroma with citric fruit, pine and some roasted malt. Flavor is refreshing fruity, some pine, dark malt, light roasted and decent bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. Quite nice and smooth, but a bit on the safer side and actually rather standard black IPA.

Bottle from beersiveknown - many thanks, Steve! Pours out in a deep black colour with medium body and steady head. Aroma of fresh hops and roasted nuts. Taste of fresh hops, nuts, barley, spruce, oak and barrel. Fresh and citrus finish. Nice one.

Finn (4315) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmomopolet Tromsø Langnes. Kullsvart. Høyt tett skum med litt farge. Varer. Kniplingslacing. Litt dempet fruktig aroma. Overmoden banan. Smaken frisk syrlig. På grensen til pepper. Avslutter tørt.

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

Some zesty citrus indeed. Finishes with a dose of it, mixed with bitter tinge from hops. Plenty of roast floating around as well.Pours black with good head and lacing. Thick texture. Light hint of sourness in finish as well. Bottle.

DutchDrebus (4152) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle thx to benzai @ home. Pitch black, opaque colour with a small off-white head, but it’s quite cold. Smells hops, grapefruit, roasty, some dark chocolate. Great combination between ipa and stout. Tastes quite hoppy, dark chocolate, roasty, fruity, very fresh and refreshing, lovely. Full body, low carbo.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012
Cask @ Borefts 2012. Black with only some bubbles for a head. Very lovely hopiness, citrus, tropical fruits, white grapes, pine. Taste is similar, tropical fruits, citrus zest, white grapes, tad kiwi, pulp, reasonably bitter with some mocha and dark malts, fine roast and choc in the back. Cask bodied, little carb and served warmer than usual which I mind less. It a UK thang.

ClubGonzo (4119) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is pine, spruce, freshlty cut grass, hints of chocolate, peaches and cold coffee. Taste is pine, coffee, resin, grass, hints of peaches, herbs and licorice. Medium body and carbonation. A very well executed BIPA with a flavorful, hoppy profile while still having a bit to offer on the malty side.
