Douberd (4752) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2013
330 ml long neck bottle, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 8%. Very dark brown colour while it pours, almost black while is sitting in the glass. Two full fingers of beige head, thick and soapy, with very good retention and heavy lacing left around the glass. Very nice aroma, with light roastiness and subtle chocolate notes, plus a notable cognaq aroma. Taste is mildly bitter at first, again with a light cognaq and chocolate flavour. Becomes more bitter on the aftertaste, with a medium lasting finish. Great body, very thick and full,good carbonation. Smooth on the palate. Alcohol gives a warming feeling. A truly great beer.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2013
Svart med medium skum. Rostad, chocklad aroma, kanske en "efter hint" av grapefrukt. Söt smak som senare övergår i en viss beska.

Draft at Alla Spina. Pours a deep brown, near black, with good off-white head. Nose of grapefruit, tangerine, roasted malt, chocolate. Average mouthfeel and bitterness.

larsga (7251) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 21, 2013
Small beige head. Clear barely translucent deep dark brown body with light carbonation. Roasty earthy chocolatey aroma with toffee notes. Dry-sweet roasty chocolatey soy sauce taste with earthy licorice and toffee notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy roasty burnt grain aftertaste with perfumy chocolatey soy sauce notes. Black IPA? More like a really good imperial stout. Whatever, it’s a very good beer anyway. Clean, clear, and vivid. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika.)

jookos (5379) - FINLAND - APR 17, 2013
Bottle. Black. Dark chocolate, piney-, slight earthy, hops, and good malts. Pretty good aroma, feels very well balanced, inviting. Body is super smooth and surprisingly thick. But well bittered, with an excellent chocolate, roasty hoppy palate. Quite an excellent BIPA. Great body, harmonous flavours.

This *is* a bottle that surpised me with its presence while making room in the fermentation fridge, and as I’m having problems comprehending the logic of the BBE markings, there’s a good possibility of this being old, and thus short on the nose. But even so, a really good brew.

tfredvik (1714) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2013
Clear, very dark brown body with a red tint. The creamy head is light-brown, long-lived and laces the glass very well. The aroma is moderate to faint and definitely on the malty side, with roasted notes of coffee and only some very vague hints of hops. This is not how I want my BIPAs to smell, but still it’s a pleasant aroma. The taste is light to moderate sweet and the finish is moderate to heavy bitter, the bitterness is very long-lasting. The flavours are not strong, but quite nice, although not especially well balanced: also the flavours are highly skewed towards the black with roasted notes and coffee. In the back there are faint fruity hints and the bitterness feels floral or herbal. Medium body, dry to oily texture, soft to moderate carbonation. An simple and good beer, but the hops have obviously been used mostly for bitterness, it lacks lots of aroma and flavouring hops to be a successful and complex BIPA, IMHO.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 11 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

33cl bottle from de hopduvel in Ghent. Dark brown body with a large off-white head. Aroma of citrus and roasted malts. Nice citrus taste and medium bitterness. I like this one.

Bottle at konttori, tampere. Black with small white head. Aroma of licorice, some hops and roasted malts. Roasty and hoppy taste, medium body, but something is missing.

Buonissima black ipa con un amaro intenso che bene si sposa con un corpo robusto.
