visionthing (2402) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
33cl bottle from Őllepood Nr.1 Gambrinus, Tartu. Pours pretty much black with a tan head. Fresh hoppy aroma with pine, fruits, citrus and some dark and roasty notes in the background. Quite dominated by the hops, but well balanced and refreshing. Moderate sweet with delicous hoppy flavours and a quite bitter and citrusy finish. The black aromas seems to stay in the background and it’s more like a regular IPA, but certainly a nice one.

DSG (5036) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks troubles. Dark brown color. Pleasant aroma of fruity and piney hops and a bit of roastiness. Pretty bitter flavor with piney and fruity hops, some dark malt with some roastiness and a touch of chocolate. Medium-bodied. Nice.

Marduk (2038) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2013
330ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Massive size, brown head, stays. Full of hops, sweet, mellow roast, fresh notes in aroma. Nice sneaking roast, bunch of hops, juicy, floral taste. Well balanced bitterness. Nice brew!

thirstyrabbit (1004) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle. Deep dark brown body with a tall creamy head. Aroma mostly has fresh hops and not so much roast. Eyes closed, I would have thought it’s the smell of a regular IPA. Taste also has mainly citric hops, mild roast comes second. Alcohol is well integrated but the finish is slightly astringent.

McNeillR (983) - SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bow-tie black, foamy and filmy thin tan head. Shuffling lactic richness, bright hop and squeaky smokiness. Earthy Oaty initial taste but quickly overtaken by a neatly quenching bitterness. Open and ambitious malt thread is what does this beer justice in whatever age, dispense or how ruined my palate is. Dense but firm carbonation eases an oily rauch vibe, odd but exhilarating and adds to the dryness. Assuming oiliness to the finish, weird Tuna light smokiness and linger is oddly plum fruit and creamy. A fine beer and a finer example of Black IPA.

Bottle shared. Pours deep brown with a frothy brown head. Aroma is grass, caramel, coffee, roasted malts, some liquorice and chocolate. Taste is heavy bitter and light to moderate sweet. Nice! Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Lovely stuff.

martjoobolut (366) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2013
Intense aroma of pine, fruits, raisins, hints of salt. Pours pitch black with beautiful big tan head. The head stays for a long time. Nice lacing also. Taste: raisins, coffee, roasted malts, piney, grapefruit. The bitterness gets more intense in the finish. No noticeable alcohol. Medium carbonation. Overall: really great looking and smelling beer.

mR_fr0g (2019) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Keg at Brewdog Shepard’s Bush opening night. I’m not sure this is the beer I asked for but here goes. Aroma is roast and light tart earthy mushroom. Opaque black pour with a persistent light tan head. Flavour is mineral, smooth roast coffee and earthy hop. Light sour raspberry in the finish. Body is a touch light.
