Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2012
In short: An ordinary not-so-hoppy roasted black IPA. Slightly below average
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed relatively fresh approximately 2 months after buying in an Amsterman store.
The look: Near black body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose has a medium hops presence (typical citrus and pine needles), notes of brownies cake and a tiny bit of smoke. Taste is medium roasted, roasted smoked almonds, some chocolate, yeast. Overall dirty sensation. Body is a bit light a foamy. Juicy fruity hops in finish with some green pine needles. Nothing bad about this beer but overall I thought this was a rather ordinary offering. I was disappointed by this beer, and I hate when I open a bottle of beer and exclaim “Ah shit! I should have opened something else!” and the person next to me is all "Please, show some respect to your dead aunt, you’re ruining the funeral.”

rand (1250) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle 33 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Very dark brown beer, nice beige and fine head, sticking to the glass. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and sipy hops. Bittersweet mouth, rich and unctuous, powerfull notes of coffee, roasted malt, average bitterness, black fruits and dry fruits, licorice. Bitterness of resin and roast for an ample and long finale. Trend Porter-Stout.

rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2012
33 cl bottle thanks to Nisse666! Sampled on March 8, 2012 Pours black with off white head. Lots of roasty coffee and black licorice in the nose along with some herbal hops. Coffee, grain, and herbal hop flavor. Full mouthfeel, lots of hop bitterness and a little licorice on the finish.

bvc (1146) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Draft at naked city, listed at 11%. Almost black, yet brown with little head appearance. Watered down coffee and thick fudge backing...touch of hop infused grainy alcohol undertones. Mildly sticky and creamy lower carbonated body. Piney coffee flavor up front, sweet fudgey chocolate, inky, touch of alkaline...fades into a sweet patent malt hoppy finish with a boozey dish waterr backing. As a black ipa, whatever the fuck that is, above average. As a hoppy dark strong beer, it is a little thin and under attenuated.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Thick looking black pour, looks almost chalky enough to be a stout but that’s probably just the healthy sediment in the beer. Nose is pretty potent, not just the usual citrus and bitter hops but some anise, mild fruits, and roasts. I want to give points to the brew for being not just the usual black IPA, but despite the relative distinctiveness of the flavor profile it’s not quite balanced or pleasant enough to merit a rave. Solid.

jfb (3680) - GERMANY - MAR 15, 2012
(bottle) pours a black colour with a frothy dark beige head. faint aroma of grass and lime, coffee, toasted malts and light peaches. flavour is mostly the same, very tame hop profile, with big notes of burnt grass, treebark and earth. light-bodied with average carbonation.

SaintMatty (5083) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2012
330ml Bottle - Dark brown, almost black, with red tinges. Roasted malt, pine and liquorice in the aroma. Roasted taste with notes of pine, liquorice and chocolate. Nicely balanced compared to some other Black IPAs I’ve had, but not necessarily better for it.

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Black in color, with a tan head. Aromas of some licorice, floral faint hops and malts. Flavors of malts, some hops. Calling it an IPA does not match my expectations for this beer. But it’s still a great ale.

Clear dark brown to black color, tan head. Grainy, malty, sweet, licorice, spicy, (a bit of ) sassafras scent. Grainy, bitter taste. Long dry bitter and grainy aftertaste. Medium smooth mouthfeel, high dry grainy bitterness.

esp0r (1890) - NORWAY - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle shared with daje at Olympen
Pours black with a tanned head. Smells of coffee, roasted malts and some citrus. Not as fruity as some other black ipas i’ve tried lately. Taste has good sweetness, some fruityness and blackberries. Some chocolate notes too. Nice power hoppy bitterness in the finish. Absolutely a nice beer
