oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Bottled (from biernavigatie). Pitch black colour, big brown head. Aroma is mild roasted malts, some sweet fruity and floral notes along with some wooden and resiny notes. Flavour is liquorice, mild toasted notes and also has a nice fruity and floral notes as well. Quite pleasantly balanced, the alcohol also gives a slight sweetness to it.

adasko (1886) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Amazing strawberry aroma with a very very delicate coffee and chocolate notes and a flat malty background. It looks perfect. Dark, black, non-transparent, with beautiful and quite steady beige head which leaves nice lacing. Mouth feeling is so good. It’s so smooth, and so thick. Taste is dominated mostly by bitterness which also leaves long aftertaste. There is no place for sweetness in it. The middle of the taste is quite malty. You can feel the dark, tanned malts. Feels even a bit like dry stout for the moment.

evergreen0199 (3020) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Beer Hawk. A black coloured pour with a healthy beige head on top. Roasty, malty, fruity, slightly smokey aroma. Tastes roasty, bitter, coffee, pine and a little chocolate. Not what I would call a typical black IPA but this was still bloody good stuff. More please.

Swaroga (2106) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest czarne i nie przejrzyste. Piana piwa jest wielka o kolorze jasnego brązu. Piana jest trwała i równie trwale osadza się na ściankach kielicha. NOS : zapach jest średnio intensywny. Dziwny ma aromat bo bukiet palonych aromatów tego ciemnego piwa tak jakby chowa się pod jednolitym ale szczelnym aromatem skórki cytrusowej. Po wstrząśnięciu aromaty cytrusowe wzmacniają się i piwo pachnie zaskakująco świeżo. Aromat cytrusów przypomina cukierek cytrynowy, skórkę i miąższ pompelo. Do tego marakuja, niedojrzały banan i jabłko. USTA : średnio gazowane o konsystencji mleka. Piwo jest faktycznie hybryda miedzy stoutem a czarnym IPA. Nuty słodowe przypominają czarną czekoladę, suche ciasto czekoladowe popijane zimnym Latte. Piwo lekko kwaśnieje jak mleko i cierpnie jak skórka cytrusowa. Następnie gorzknieje o typowych nutach chmielowych podobnych do skórki grejpfruta i nutach palonych podobnych do kawy. Posmak jest trwały i podobny do gorzkiej czekolady ze skórkami cytrusowymi. ODCZUCIA : bardzo przyzwoite i smaczne piwo. Trudno mi się do czegoś doczepić. Nuty cytrusowe, typowe dla czarnych IPA są bardzo ciekawe ale subtelne. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : 0

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Fairly solid black colour with a huge creamy tan head. The aroma is dark roast to burnt malts, chocolate, light coffee, grapefruit, pine, floral notes. The flavour is sweet dark malt with bitter chocolate and coffee, followed by fresh hop flavours of grapefruit and grassy green notes. Bitter cocoa-like finish. The body is medium and the texture is creamy. Balanced and really another very good beer from de Molen. This is a few months old, would like to try this really fresh as the "black" side of this beer is taking over a little.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Sweetish aroma with a bit of chocolate and slightly floral hops. Smooth chocolate flavours with a bitter finish. V drinkable for the ABV.
