KarlPopper (9) - Krakow, POLAND - APR 11, 2014 does not count
Great and long creamy head giving beautiful lacing on glass. Pours black. Aroma explodes with hops, firstly more herbal then citrus. Great notes of dark malts combine with herbs countered by nice mandarin like notes which make this bear very drinkable. Alcohol is well disguised. Palate is rich from herbs through dark malts, melanoidines and citrus hops. Almost perfect CDA. It’s the best Imperial Cascadian Dark Ale I have ever drunk!!! Kurdos to De Molen. Drunk from bottle, 4 months after bottling (date 19/12/13).

Had this one @ The Hoppy Pub, on tap. Hoppy aromas. Some roasted malt flavor. Very refreshing and hoppy. Nice one.

Benderone (30) - FRANCE - MAR 26, 2014
Bière sombre, mousse beige, peu persistante. Nez sur le caramel et le houblon, résineux et fleuri. Carbonation moyenne. Le palais est assez lisse, corps moyen. On est clairement plus sur le houblon amer et beaucoup moins sur l’aromatique contrairement à ce que laisse penser le nez. Quelques notes boisées, de malts torréfiées et de cacao amer avec une pointe d’agrumes. Finale plutôt sèche sur une amertume astringeante. Bière assez plaisante.

Svesse (6147) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 28 Feb 2014) Black colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, chocolate, pine needles and hints of mint. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, dark chocolate, pine needles and a fairly dry finish with a generous piney bitterness. Almost full body, quite dry. Solid and well made black IPA. Very nice.

tomekk1978 (468) - POLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Skład: woda, słód (pilzneński, karmelowy, palony jęczmień, żytni, owsiany), chmiel (chinook- goryczkowy oraz nelson savin, amarillo, chinook), drożdże. Barwa: czarna, nieprzejżysta nawet pod światło. Piana gęsta beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, dosyć trwała. Aromat: ciemne słody z chmielowym akcentem, ale mniej cytrusowym niż się spodziewałem. Wyczuwalna nuta alkoholowa. Smak: początkowo kwaskowy, z chmielową kontrą, natomiast na końcu palone i czekoladowe słody i pochodząca z nich goryczka. Przyznam, że spodziewałem sie więcej. Wspomnianych słodó żytnich czy owsianych nie czuć, aromat średni, jednak może to wiązać się z datą przydatności, która upywa za ok. 2 miesiące. Byc może spozyte wcześniej, to piwo było by znacznie ciekawsze.

33cl bottle sampled in a snifter. Dark brown brew with 2 fingers of foam with medium retention and nice lacing. Aroma of cocao and citrus. Tastes fruity, cocao, alcohol, bitter and roasted. Very bitter aftertaste and medium-high carbonation. Good brew!

JulienHuxley (3054) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2014
On tap at Arendsnest. Black pour, thin brown head. Aroma is fruity, intense cocoa, something dusty, powdery. Taste is roasty, chocolaty, Sweet fruitiness, lots of alcohol, bitter black chocolate finish. Palate is full bodied, light-med carbonation. A bit heavy.
