Grapefruit, orange in the nose with something else that’s great but I can’t put my finger on it. Taste is also very citrusy with stoutish overtones that work remarkably well together. Yeah, definitely grapefruit in the flavour, lovely ! Mild carbonation and good, tight palate make this a winner.

pivnizub (9896) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2016
Buddel:Literally black with a medium sized and stable tanned head; toasted malt, dried fruits and nutty traces in the nose, grapefruity hops in the background; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, soft MF; lingering grapefruity-hoppy finish with malt and coffee and leather. Chapeau…

pityu (487) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle - Opaque black colour, medium, creamy tan head, excellent retention and fine lacing. Intense hoppy nose with coffee, chocolate and resinous scents. Taste is toasted malts with nutty tones, some coffee and cocoa powder, dark dried fruits, lemon zest, pine, grapefruit, a touch of ash and smoke. Nice balance between rich toasted malty taste and fresh hoppy aromas. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, smotth texture, lingering bitter finish with some roasted aftertaste. Very beautiful ale, but its more like a american style RIS for me, than a black IPA, because of the intense roasted character.

langeveld12 (401) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2015
Drank it almost 2 years after production. Pours an average frothy light brown head. Body is black. Aromas of malts, yeasts and hops. Fruity at first, then roasted with coffee. I guess most of the hop flavors are gone which makes it more like a stout than an IPA. Still, quite good. I have to try it again with a fresher one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skortila (5109) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2015
Bottled. Old note. Aroma has tropical fruits from the hops and some roast coffee more in the background. Dark coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter, has some toffee sweetness, tropical fruits, some coffee and roast. Medium bodied beer. Pretty decent.

Dark espresso, very reach taste, almost no smoke in it. The one I drank was well expired but still very good

Alengrin (4163) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
De Molen’s BIPA, thanks to Stefan for sharing. Towering, rocky, dense, creamy, light beige head over a very dark bronze beer, almost black. Aroma strikingly has a lot of orange juice at first, next to hints of marmelade, grapefruit peel, cedar, white pepper, chocolate, toasted bread, hazelnuts and iron but in a good way. Restrained dark fruitiness, raisins and dates but not too sweet, very nutty from the start, toasted with a smooth, soft, supple mouthfeel, a bit iron-like in the middle but not actually metallic, roasted bitter touch in the end as well as a sweeter chocolate touch, ending in a fragrant, grapefruity, resiny, long and deeply bittering hoppiness. Absolutely lovely.

Bottle shared at Ash’s. Pours black with a thick beige head. Aromas of light roast, coffee, pine. Taste is bitter, more pine, coffee, burnt orange. Definitely more of a stout on the finish. First wee tasting of the summer

Bottle from a corner shop. Appearance - like an expresso. Nose - more coffee notes. Dark chocolate. Taste - there is a tangy orange note but generally this is all about roast flavours. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly decent finish. Overall - it’s a good stout not an ipa.
