UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Another one of Dunham very good beer! Coffee, chocolate, roasty. Great looking beer, very dark, and a nice long lasting dark caramel head. 117 IBU, very hoppy, and you can taste all of them! A very good Imperial Black IPA, totally enjoyed it.

olio (8470) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
341 ml bottle. Bottled on 27.04.2015.
Pours very dark red, practically black color with a small off-white head. Nice roasty-coffee-hoppy thing going on on the aroma here, some dark chocolate and pine also, mild grapefruits. Quite creamy and fluffy palate, roasted bitter malts, slightly burnt, some espresso, faint licorice and pine-y hops. Quite well balanced, more like a black and tan than a BIPA, very Stout-y. Would love to have this more fresh but still excellent.

tiong (5603) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
341ml bottle from Firma-Bier

Bottled 27.4.2015 - Pours pitch black with a thick brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, piney hops, grass, citrus, herbal notes, hints of licorice and chocolate. Taste is roasty, grassy and piney with some hints of licorice, herbal notes, chocolate and coffee. Finish is roasty, earthy and bitter with some herbal grassy hoppiness and licorice. Okay, quite heavy for a black IPA, feels almost like a hoppy imperial stout.

yourilevesque (901) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
Cela fait maintenant plusieurs années que je déguste cette bière dont je suis témoin d’une évolution réfléchie et inspirante. Cette version précise m’interpelle particulièrement. D’abord au niveau du look, la bière est aussi irréprochable qu’elle l’a toujours été. Un liquide parfaitement noir, une mousse beige onctueuse, crémeuse, dense et collante au verre. Le liquide dans le verre semble d’une densité harmonieuse et savamment calculée. En faisant tournoyer le liquide dans mon verre, la pré-mousse se reforme instantanément et ne remonte que très lentement vers la mousse principale. Cette version-ci de la black IIPA me plaît particulièrement car les houblons, bien que bien frais et toujours aussi floraux, sont à mon goût personnel moins agressifs et mieux balancés que dans les versions précédentes de la même bière. Ceux-ci laissent ainsi une place importante aux malts dont la caramélisation apporte tonus, complexité et profondeur à ce liquide mi stout, mi IPA. Je suis exactement au point de jonction de deux styles parfaitement représentés. Texture soyeuse en bouche ou les houblons s’expriment encore une fois avec souplesse. Un paysage de campagne où jardins floraux et champs de céréales renaissent au printemps suite à la fonte des neiges. Longueur plus qu’agréable et jamais lassante, ce brassin de cette bière est pour moi un franc succès!

Saeglopur (1435) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 9, 2016
341 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, dense, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of chocolate, orange, citrus, biscuit, some coffee, some pine.
Tastes of coffee, dark chocolate, citrus, orange, resin, some pine, cocoa, some liquorice, slight tobacco.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty, bitter, zesty, a bit resinous, with cocoa, coffee, liquorice, some tobacco.

Very nice. I was expecting even a bit more, but still an enioyable BIPA, with all the typical elements of this style. Maybe not the most unique one, not among the best style examples I’ve had.

341ml bottle at home shared with Saeglopur. According to the Importers Sticker bottled on 27.04.2015. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells coffee, licorice, a bit musty, creamy, cocoa powder, not too much noticeable anymore of the hops on the smell, a bit medical. still good smell though. full body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, coffee, bit citric, some ash, a bit pukeish, coffee grounds, toasted malts, some roast, a bit soapy, medical. finishes rather roasty with notes of coffee and licorice and a bit medical. good stuff, tastes a bit oldish / medical though, probably would have been better fresh, still quite drinkable though.
