Muggus69 (1900) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 19/05/16 Deep bronze body, creamy beige head persists. Nice malt nose - burnt nuts, cola, weak black coffee, dark toffee, with woody, earthy citrus hop character. Full chewy smooth body, good weight. Lovely malt body - nutty, dark toffee, bit of cocoa with earthy woody hops delivering a good whomp of bitterness. Nice beer!

Cimbasso (640) - - MAY 20, 2016
Sampled from a bottle shared with Holmen1 in Copenhagen. Pours a very dark brown with a foaming tan head. Aromas of fresh bread and chocolate. A rich and complex taste of burnt sugar, dried fruit, prunes and with a hint of grapefruit. Lots of ash flavours leading to a long, dry finish. A little thin tasting in the mouth. A complex and enjoyable black IPA.

hawthorne00 (3308) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle. Clear mid brwon with a large beige head. Aroma of mocha, earth, pepper, lemon. More coffee than chocolate, quite earthy. Salted caramel. Very light bodied for 8%. Relatedly, quite dry for the mocha and slightly brioche-y malt side of things. Dry, earthy and spicy at the end with moderate bitterness. Interesting beer, reminds me of Doctor’s Orders Iron Lung as much as anything.

ForlornHope (355) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours black in colour with red hints against the light. Tan head which is rocky which fades a bit but leaves a good lacing on the glass. The aroma is of rich malt, sweet fruit and some peppery hop. A sweet start soon gives way to a bitter finish. Lots of flavour - rich malt, burnt toasted flavours, juicy fruit with lots of hop bitterness. More like a strong stout than an IPA, but really good.

NordicV (1769) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Svart öl med beige skum. Doft av malt, kaffe och lätta tuggummitoner. I smaken tillkommer lätt fruktighet. Hade gissat på en porter snarare än svart ipa.

SvartIPA. Jo. Kaffe. Besk. Check. Inte min kopp av kaffe, kanske. Som den äckliga pralinen, det är svårt att låta bli...
