330 ml bottle. 2016 vintage. BB Eind 2017. From my Dutch Secret Summer Santa. Thanks a lot!
Black color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, licorice, chocolate, mild coffee, mild hops and some bitterness in a yummy aroma. Roasted malt, moderate bitterness, coffee, hops, dryness and licorice in the flavor. Tasty and strong. Enjoyable.

Bosskie (731) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2016
Pitch black, shady head, foamy and creamy, like a guiness. Smell is liquorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Dark fruit, fresh nuts. Taste is bitter and full, oily and fizzy, leading into a creamy ashy finish. Lots of coffee bitterness with dark chocolate. Intense and chewy. Hop is missing a bit. But delicious nonetheless.

Black ipa avec 6 malts et 4 houblons : Hallertau perle, Pacific gem, Bromling cross et Centennial, sous-titrée "cascadian dark" par les deux brasseurs en coopération : de Eem et Pampus. Niveau abv de 8 % pour 70 ebu. Mon exemplaire était à 6 mois avant sa date. Couleur noir intense à l’opacité très forte (ebc de 120). Mousse brun foncé, à flocons moyens, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de café, moka, ganache, pointe très légère de branche de cassis, baies noires sauvages. 1ère bouche bien souple à la très belle entame café/tabac brun , avec une lame de fond amère. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume complexe et pointe herbacée en arrière-gorge. 2ème au très grand ensemble malt torréfié/café/chocolat noir. Arrière-bouche aux pointes d’amertume très stylisées. 3ème à l’ensemble de plus en plus intégré, fort et somptueux. Arrière-bouche longue, au grand caractère. Longueur au très beau développement sur l’amertume, avec un équilibre haut placé. Jambes marquées. Levure souple, élégante, épicée, très grande ligne. Alcool très efficace, il soutient l’amertume en maestro sûr de lui. Finale avec plein de nuances fines, bien maltée. CONCLUSION : bière de très grande construction, aux dix ingrédients majeurs très bien harmonisés, avec un caractère personnel très affirmé, et une amertume de haut vol. Comment dire ? 5.

33cl bottle. Pitch black pour with a tall tan head with good retention. Roasted malts, cherries, brewed coffee as well as roasted coffee beans, pine resin. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a hoppy chocolate bitter aftertaste.

Thank you to Tom for this very thoughtful gift. Pours very dark brown in color with a medium dark tan head. The aroma is roasted and malty, with coffee, chocolate, a little bit of smoke, grapefruit, and pine. The taste has a good amount of bitterness. There is grapefruit and pine, a very heavy coffee, chocolate, resin, and pineapple. I find a mild yet lingering coffee aftertaste. Medium bodied, kind of a sticky texture, and above average in carbonation. This is a solid Black IPA. And the artwork on the bottle is pretty cool as well.

Zlotta (1917) - Hagen, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2016 New rating: 0.33 l bottle sampled during Pampus tap takeover at ’HOPPA!’, 2016 version, best before end 2017. Black with a frothy, brown head. Roasty-malty, just slightly fruity aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, burnt nuts and hints of mango. Roasty-malty, slightly fruity taste of coffee, dark chocolate, burnt nuts and hints of mango, followed by a medium long, roasty-bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Not a huge difference to the ’aged’ 2014 version, a tad more fruity but also a bit roastier and drier, overall less a of Black IPA than their ’Hoppy Stout’.

Old rating: 0.33 l bottle from ’Tabak’s Wijndiscount & Bierwinkel’, best before end 2016 (apparently the 2014 version, 2016 version was actually already in the stores...). Clear, very dark red to black with a thin, frothy, stable, brown head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of milk chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla and hazelnut, hops are barely detectable. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee beans and hazelnut, followed by a short, roasty-bitter, minimally hoppy-fruity finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, flat. With some age, this is a very nice stout/porter. Will try to find a fresh example to compare. (7/4/7/3/14/3.5)

Drinking from a 33cl bottle. A strong coffee aroma. The clear black beer has a small brown head. In the taste coffee, dark chocolate, roast malt. Low carbonated.
