jgb9348 (5722) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2012
Deep dark cola coloured body, not fully black, at about 75% opaque with a very thin, oily tan head - not good looking, really. Aroma of roasted malt, earth, licorice, mushrooms and a bit of hops - not much though. Medium to Full-bodied; Meaty, full earthy flavour with a lot of Worcestershire sauce flavours, some soy sauce, some roasted malt and a touch of hop bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows some caramel and toffee, but the overwhelming earthy and meaty flavours just show too much. Overall, not such a great beer, especially for the style. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods (Bowery) in New York, New York on 25-November-2011 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 11-April-2012.

sulawang (1050) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2016
Visual: Pours iced tea brown with a small creamy head, superfine sticky lancing as well as a layer of retention, sporadic bubbled streams.

Nose: sweet caramel barley malts. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: smooth-slick, fine CO2 mouthfeel, slightly watery

Mid-palate: immediate grassy bitter hops, (lvl-6-sweetness), coffee, roasty-toasty toffee barley malt,

Finish: lingering bitter hops, light chocolate, barley malt exhale

Summary: The attack is somewhat thin for an 8%’er but otherwise I very much liked the high quality smooth CO2 and prominent hop-roasted barley combo. I get a dark & green vibe from this one - rich yet still lush with vibrant hops. Great stuff.

Taste: milk chocolate, grassy hops, floral, roasted espresso beans, licorice, herbs, roasted nuts, vanilla, dark fruit, molasses, citrus. Very nice creamy mouthfeel.

Impressive. Thick and creamy and loaded with sweet chocolate and roast. Slutty beer and gee it’s attractive without being completely over the top.

R4N5H (836) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2016
33cl bottle picked up at Jumbo supermarket Amsterdam and poured into a snifter on 09-Sep-2016. Black with a tan coloured head which settles down whilst drinking. Aroma of roasted malt, pine and citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Rich sweet roasted malt upfront, with bitterness of grapefruit, spices and a hint of cherry and coffee. Hoppy with a long bitter finish which numbs the back of the tongue. One of the best Black IPAs brewed in Holland that I’ve had to date.

Bottle. Pours black with a very solid tall tan head. Very appealing. Aroma is malty and hoppy, caramel and coffee with pine, citrus and orange. Medium body and carbonation. Bitter finish, long. Very rich and balanced flavour, predominantly bitter with lingering sweetness. Pine and coffee. Lovely beer.
