Idiosynkrasie (6070) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2016
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with little ruby red glimmer and huge, fluffy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Herbal, slightly floral, minimally soapy, hoppy aroma, cautious dark malty background with a touch of dark chocolate. Taste is roasty dark malty, chocolately, slightly sweet, bitter hoppy overtones with a cautious resinous and piney touch, hints of gosseberry and blueberry; chocolately finish, lively carbonation.

kerenmk (3910) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at troubles’ place. Thanks Oron! Very dark brown with a frothy white head. Roasty and a little woodsy aroma, bitter, hoppy and roasty taste. Medium body, roasty finish and fizzy.

sonotono (245) - torino, ITALY - DEC 6, 2015
Premetto che la bottiglia era scaduta da pochi giorni. Ha creato una incredibile quantità di schiuma, nel momento di versarla. Molto scura. Odore agrumato, erbaceo, leggeri resinoso e tostato/caramellato. Sapore dolce di malto, leggero tostato, poco amaro. Troppo dolce, per le mie preferenze. Da rivedere.

tricksta_p (3155) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of roast, coffee, citrus, weak tropical fruits, hint of chocolate, hoppy notes. Flavour is light sweet and moderately bitter. Finish is dry. Enjoyable if a bit light Black IPA.

Tap @YNWA, Kolding. Pours murky dark brown with a small, creamy white head. Aroma has light dirty tartness, roasted, light coffee. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and light mouthfeel. Flavour has roasted malts, no real hops, light tartness. Dirty tap.

artemb (524) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUL 25, 2015
Hazy brown beer, transparent. Big head and some gushing. Aroma: roasted, weak tropical fruits hops. Taste: moderate sweeteness, moderate to light bitterness, hop and roasted. Flavour: roasted, light mango, light citrus, wet hay, yeast. Aftertaste: Licorice sweeteness, burned bread bitterness, and grassy hop bitterness. More hoppy stout, then black ipa.

oh6gdx (24607) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Draught@YNWA, Kolding. Brown colour with mediumsized off-white fluffy head. Aroma is fruity, some slight toasted notes along with toffee and some mild alcohol as well. Flavour is very similar in a good balance. Quite pleasant, with the toasted notes not coming in too strong to ruin the nice fruity notes of it.

Maakun (3097) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2015
Tap at Uiltje. Dark brown with creamy light beige head. Lots of marihuana, orange, dry roasted malts, ash, some peach and lychee underneath. It’s really dominated by dry roasted flavors and dank hops with soft underlying fruits. Light sweet and light to medium bitter. Under medium bodied with watery feel. Nice beer but it’s too watery.

laiti (7912) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Draught @ You?ll Never Walk Alone, Kolding. Aroma has syrupy bready tones and resiny hops. Also licorice candy. Flavour has licorice, moderate resiny hoppiness and sweet malty tones. Sweet and delicious, the hops are not as strong as in Black IPAs usually, and that suits me very well.
