CacheManyHose (183) - HONG KONG - JUL 27, 2014
Draught at Roundhouse. Pitch black-brown, opaque but not thick, tan thin bubbly creamy head and big legs. Smells of bitter dark crisp malt, leather, bitter hop, bit of grassy yeast. Tastes of very dark malt (more bitter and ashy than roasted), some dark fruit and liquorice/anise but balanced by deep, big bitterness. Palate is smooth with frothy spicy finish. Very bitter and burnt without tasting sour.

HKdIPA (240) - HONG KONG - JUL 23, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 Tap at Tipping Point. Thick opaque black pour with foamy tan head. Deep roasted malty aroma - cereal, coffee, some hops. Sweet roasted flavor - with a good amount of hoppy bitterness. Rich without being heavy - good amount of carbonation. Bitter finish. Not the usual black IPA profile - more stout-like body, almost like a very hoppy stout. Great - would definitely get again.

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Black, targe tan head. Some specks, as it was a bottom pour. Aroma a bit roasty, chocolatey, some berry. Similar taste. A bit more spicy later, some ginger, dry and very burnt. Not shining, but improves down the sample.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours black, tan head. Nose is berry coffee, pine, strawberry. Flavour is same with that strawberry flavour developing through the finish. Finish is semi-sweet. Fairly oily.

gegwilson (1178) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle in the Hemelvaart Beer Cafe, Bedale. Pours mahogany with a tan head. Good bitter hoppy flavours. Fairly spicy with resinous notes. The hops are much more at the forefront than the roast malts, but there’s some chocolate flavour in there. Very nice.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Almost black coloured hue with a big and firm tanned foamy head. Fruity hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, ethereally spice, backed by mildly roasty malt, chocolate and liquorice. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Moderately roasted malty base with chocolate, liquorice, accompanied by grapefruity and delicately herbal hoppy notes; rounded roast-malty, chocolatey and hoppy finish with an almost muted alcoholic strength. Balanced brew, a pleasure. 04.VII.14

PapaVillum (440) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
33 cl/330 ml, flaske, 8,4 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 4. juli 2014. Kulsort ufiltreret hollandsk Black IPA med flot 4 cm tykt moccafarvet skumtop, som svinder til 1 1/2 cm efter åbning. Aromaen, som mærkes i luften allerede inden ophældning, er præget af en hel del citrus, brændt malt og lidt staldduft. Dejlig "rigtig" smag af sort IPA, men det første, der falder i øjnene - eller munden, skulle man sige - er mundfølelsen. Det blødeste og mest lækre indhold af kuldioxid, som bare gør smagsoplevelsen bedre. Smagen er god solid bitter med en smule af den rigtige syrlighed og tillige afstemt med den rigtige mængde sødme. God lang eftersmag og samtidig tilpas tør i udtrykket. Black IPA er ikke min favorit øltype, men når de Molen laver øl, må man bare bøje sig i støvet - mer' end go'!
