ACD (617) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 20, 2013
Tap at Mikkeller SF (a pleasant surprise!). Murky brown/black. Big piney hops on the nose, plenty of dank grapefruity stuff, and a touch of sweet chocolate and light roast coffee. Big juicy hop hit upon tasting: plenty of pine and citrus fruit. Slightly ashy dark maltiness, with coffee, chocolate and a touch of treacle coming in there. Big piney hop bitterness lingers. Excellent.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a citrus and treacle aroma. There is a hearty chocolate malt flavor with dome dark molasses and a hefty dose of hop bitterness.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 17, 2013
Intensiv hopfiger Antrunk, zu gleichem Maße aber auch malzig mit deutlichen Schokoladennoten. Wenig fruchtig, die starke Malzigkeit wird durch den Hopfen ergänzt. Intensiv, gut! 11/13/12/11/10/12

GraveAtSea (138) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle 0,5l Black color, against the light dark brown. Wonderfull creamy and huge, rocky foam. Aroma is just perfect!!!. So complex and so intensive. Masterpiece. Citrus, tropical fruits, pines, oranges, resins, in the background chocolate. Taste: amazing balance between bitterness and some sweetness. Here we have some citrus, pines, resins, oranges, tropical fruits, grapefruits, citrus pulp - perfectly mixed with dark chocolate, roasty malts. Very refreshing and addictive taste. Long warming finish, alcohol imperceptible. Medium body, creamy texture with low carbonation. Fabulous and Fantastic beer!!! One of the greatest that I ever tasted.

Sevenlee (1253) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2013
Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, coffee, chocolate, fruit, citrus and hops. Taste is somewhat sweet and roasty leading to a roasty and bitter finish. Great stuff.

God duft av citrus og litt sjokolade. Lite skum, litt langs kant. Dyp sort farge. Fin smak av citrus frukter med en liten smak av sjokolade.

Flaska från Rosses i Torrades, Barcelona. Så här, just så här vill jag ha min BIPA. Tropiska frukter och lakrits i doften. Går att sitta länge och bara inandas. I smaken hittas citron, grape, soja, lakrits samt en nötig ton. Fyllig kropp, len smak. Riktigt, riktigt bra!

Sigmund (4933) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
500 ml bottle conditioned, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Lovely aroma of citrussy hops, on a background of moderately roasted malts, hints of dark chocolate. The medium dry flavour has again citrussy hops, blended with distinct roasted malts, notes of strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate and resin. The contradictory "Black IPA" style is beginning to grow on me, and this one is a fine specimen.

Marstonlad (386) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle at Gallows Bird, Espoo. Pours black with a little white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma has a combination of hops and malts, espresso-like elements and dark chocolate feature alongside with piny hoppiness. Taste is very similar with strong stouts, as it?s more malty than hoppy. Maltiness brings flavours like coffee, chocolate and licorice with some soy sauce to the fore with hoppy bitterness balancing in the finish. Palate is full and creamy with a smooth, low to average carbonation. I really enjoyed this: a rich, long and interesting taste.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: definitivt friskere og mer sympatisk enn Hardknott Code Black (også en svart bleking). Syrlig og litt medisinal, men allikevel god medisin. Interessant blanding av sødme, syrlighet og mørk bitterhet. God fylde, men stilarten (som språklig er en selvmotsigelse, a contradiction of terms ville en engelskmann sagt) er foreløpig ingen favoritt hos meg.
