Leini (713) - SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
330ml bottle. Pitch black body with a small tan head. Fruity aroma, with some roasted malt and dark chocolate. Bitter and roasted in flavor, with a surprisingly light palate. Long roasty finish. Low co2 & easy to drink. Quite nice for a straight forward easy to drink BIPA.

Dåligt med skum, för lite kolsyra. Känns som hembryggt, men godare ändå. Fin brödig bränd rågsmak. Men faller ändå rätt platt...

The beer is Dark and bitter and smoky aftertaste, really nice colour. The bottle looks cheap but the beer has a rich taste

drpimento (2151) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Great head lasts forever. Lots of lace. Enough bittering hops, not so much flavor or aroma. Tastes more like a great American porter. Excellent body. Ditto finish. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rarbring (1240) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2014
Aroma: Smelling of molasses, dates, coffee and chocolate.
Appearance: A clouded black colored beer. A low brown head with some lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting dark bread, dates, coffee and grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, a coarse texture. A small body with a dry finish.
Overall: Too much dark bitter coffee and peel, not balanced.
Note: Bottle 330 ml at home. Reviewed 2014-06-23.

Franzen (269) - SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Roasted malt but not much hops in the aroma. Dark with beige head. Nice roasted taste with coffe notes and a dark chocolate bitterness. Medium body average carbonation. It is a nice beer, but it is not a black IPA, too little hops. Had it been called porter the rating would have been higher.

Zekada (40) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of coffee, dark chocolates, liquorice and vanilla. Pours black with a small brown head. The taste is really plain and dosen’t tell much. Has a creamy feeling in the mouth with a long bitter and subtle smokey aftertaste.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Flaska från SB. Mörkt brun, medelhögt beige skum. Doftar grön humle, med tall och citrus när man häller upp den men snart tar de rostade aromerna över med choklad, torv, rågbröd och soja. Smaken lutar också mer åt em US porter/stout än BIPA. Visst finns humlen där men de rostade smakerna dominerar. Men bortser man från det är det bra. Relativt kärv men också tydlig sötma och runda rostade smaker gör den trots allt ganska drickvänlig. Trevlig.

Bamsen78 (2885) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2014
Draught (flight) @ Fairbar, Aarhus. Pours hazy very dark brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of roast and hops, with notes of malt and coffee. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of roasted malt and touches of yeast. Hints of liquorice. Dusty and bitter finish. OK but rather dusty for the style.
