hobsch (408) - Cologne, - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle 0.33l from Marlou Zonhoven. Pours black with beige head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is cassis, tart. Taste is also Cassis, bitter touch, dry and tart. Great stuff. Even better than the regular excalibur ipa.

Mainuh_man (37) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours black with a relatively small, tan head. Super nice hop aroma. Spruce, resin, herbs and overripe fruit (almost like childs antibiotic amoxicillin). Beer is almost immediately bitter, with only the slightest amount of malt..Citrus and herby hops linger, and roasted malt bitterness is added to this. Not much malt to balance this one off. Sharp but minimal carbonation, with a medium body and slick mouthfeel. Overall, really amazing hop aroma, but not very good hop or malt flavor, and bitterness really dominates. A fairly unidimensional beer.

Bottle from Prik & Tik Marlou Zonhoven. Caramel aroma and a touch of black chocolade and tropic fruit. My first black IPA and it didn’ disappoint me.

Countbeer (4302) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized dark brownish yellow beige colored foamy head on top of a black beer. Aromas of roast, hops, chocolate, some coffee, some liquorice, citrus, light spicy and some pine. Flavours of roast, hops, some chocolate and some lighter liquorice tones, floral tones, bitters, citrus, light citrus tarty tone, pine, grass and herbs. Good bitter roasty cotrus tones! Aftertaste is a mix of malt roast, some chocolate, some coffee, herbs, bitters and some grassy tones. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture. Basic BIPA, or at least what and BIPA should be like! This one is balanced and easy drinkable! And good on all fronts! Very nice!

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 Bottle shared at Bruce’s. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roast, toast, earth, lemon peel, chocolate, charred wood, berry and yoghurt. The taste is bitter, acidic, dark fruit, raisin, cherry, charcoal, toast and coffee grinds with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not a whole lot of depth to it. So-so black IPA.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2014
Noire légèrement rougeâtre, effervescence moyenne, col brun clair fin. Malts caramel légèrement grillés, houblons qui donnent un fruité principalement orangé ainsi qu’une petite amertume herbacée. Pas mal, pas mal!
