heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May ’16. A 0.33 l bottle. It poured a hazy dark brown body with medium sized brownish head. Malty aroma, nuts, caramel, chocolate, some alcohol and of course hoppy counterpart which was not so strong, mostly herbal. Flavor was bitter though. Pleasant herbal hop notes intertwined with cocoa, dark fruit and cappuccino toasted malt. Medium body, very smooth with bittersweet herbal and elegant toasted finish. Very balanced, very pleasant, although an atypical black IPA.

MelvinKalksma (807) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, pine, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts and hops.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, pine, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and hops.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. A lot of piney hops and roasted malts. These two work great together in creating an interesting beer.

pivnizub (10028) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2016
Bouteille: Deep ruby-amber coloured, hazy, big and stable creamy tanned head; fruity , a btt , port-vinous nose with a quite solid herbal- hoppy background; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, quite medium bodied; lingering chocolatey and vinous and dark-malty finish, disturbed by a solid herbal-hoppy aftertaste. Very nice brew...

Maakun (3422) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear mahogany with big caramel head. Lots of soft roasted note with toast, chestnuts, toffee, mango, grapefruit, milk chocolate. The nose is not that amazing but the taste is great with roasted and sweet notes mixing well, and a lasting roasted and hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied with a bit creamy feel going into light mineral feel into the finish. Mouth coating slight fizzy carbonation. Not a typical black IPA at all but it’s quite good.
