hirigalzkar (2290) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a finger high off white head. Notes of chocolate, soy and citrus - not that inviting. Very hoppy taste with notes of pine needles, red orange, lemon and citrus cest. High bitterness and dryness in the aftertaste. Maybe even too hoppy? Nice creamy body.

_angst_ (2777) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2013
Pours dark wooden brown with a small frothy and creamy blackish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is malty, fruity, herbal and floral with roasted malts, graham crackers, ammonium chloride, resinous wood, roquefort cheese, pine cones, grapefruit rinds, lemon peal, dark roast coffee, high cocoa content dark chocolate, lemon balm, dill, unripe tropical fruits and hints of chocolate covered cherries and freshly picked black currants. Taste is bitter, tiny salty, herbal, floral and tiny fruity with roasted malts, caramel, licorice fudge, ammonium chloride, fresh oily pine cones, resinous wood, gooseberries, lemon balm, dill, grapefruit, lemon and orange peal, heavy dark roast coffee, pure cocoa powder, chocolate cake, old cheese, pumpernickel bread, unripe mango, pineapple, dried black currants and freshly cut grass. Mouthfeel is soft, round, oily bitter, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter, herbal and floral with roasted malts, resinous wood, pine cones, lemon and orange peal, fresh dark roast coffee, grapefruit juice, gooseberries, lemon balm, freshly cut grass, bitter chocolate, black currant leaves, unripe tropical fruits and hints of dried flowers. Wow! I’m amazed by this simple yet majestic BIPA. For the first time in ages Dugges are impressing me a lot and I’m happy to see them win back my heart after what has seemed like the dark ages filled with mostly witch hunts, scurvy and bland seasonal bitters.

ekstedt (5435) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2013

fantti (704) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2013
Pours pitch black with 1,5 finger muddy white and quite stable head. At first the aroma has a lot of tropical fruity notes with some citrusy in the back. Then the aromas of stout takes advantage: licorice, coffee and roastness. The roastiness is like grass has been burnt, this is actually quite strong and not so pleasant. Taste has a lot more stout notes than hoppy flavor. Coffee, herbs and roastiness are most dominant, under is little woody notes. Palate is medium, almost little too weak, before the hoppiness takes and fills my mouth. All in all, very IPA-like aroma, but very stout-like taste. Ok, but not my favourite black IPA.
