Moravius (836) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Grebhan’s, Bremen. - Tiefstes Schwarzbraun, üppiger dunkelbeigefarbener Schaum. - In der Nase feinste Nadelwaldaromen, Mokka, etwas Karamel, ein wenig Grapefruit. - Im Antrunk enorm schwer, mit wuchtigen, fast verbrannten Röstaromen (ungezuckerter Espresso), Kiefernnadeln und strenger, holziger Herbe. Malzsüße kommt kaum vor. Mild rezent, fast dickflüssig. Im Abgang kräftige Bittere mit holzig-harzigen Zügen. Enorm langer Nachtrunk von heftiger Bittere. - Wuchtig-strenges IPA, in dem kräftiges Röstmalz und eine Überdosis Aromahopfen einander erschlagen. Ist mir etwas zu heftig.

Lodgewick (39) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Almoust black drink with longlasting thick beige head. Coffee and citrus are main factors in aroma. Some notes of tropical fruit and spruce as well. Aroma is well balanced but surprisingly mild. Coffee is rounded by white chocolate in the taste. Grapefruit is the main hop flavour, but some woody touch as well. A note of alcohol when the drink warms. Palate is dry and full. Great beer to enjoy.

leaparsons (8837) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Black with a large beige head. Aromas are coffee with nutty dark chocolate and blackberries. Some funk with spritzy yeast and peppery alcohol. Burnt toast with liquorice. Flavours are dry, earthy roast coffee with dark berries and liquorice. Blackberries with molasses and a spicy, herbal finish. Quite refrained in a sense, good, though.

Pedrens (164) - SPAIN - JAN 23, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2015 Marron oscuro, espuma beige persistente. Aroma a cereal, avena, lupulo, mandarina, cafe, batante cambiante segun se va bebiendo...en boca predominan los sabores a malta, cafe, algo torrefacto...predomina el amargor...y se nota el CO2... El final ...a cafe afrutado...y lupulo. Cerveza a mi parecer muy redonda pero llena de matices. Buena BIPa.Muy recomendable...

Waooouh! An amazing black IPA. Great hoppy nose full of grapefruit, tropical fruits and hints of caramel and smoky wood. Beautiful deep dark colour. Taste is perfect, well balanced, nice bitterness, great finish... I am very impressed!
