Werckmeister (1577) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 12, 2016
0,33l bottle at home. BB 03/2016. almost black color, small tan head. smells of roast, light licorice, parfume, berry notes, bit flowery, ligthly earthy. interesting smell, i like it. medium to full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, earthy notes, almost smoky, spices, some coffee, bit soapy, light currant notes. finishes light roasted and a bit dry with earthy notes and licorice. good one, liked the smell almost a bit better than the taste. not much hops left on the taste, but probably because it does not seem to be so fresh anymore, still very enjoyable beer.

rondphoto (3345) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2015
bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Opaque black color, two-finger tan head, curtain of lace. Aroma of somewhat bitter toasted malt. Taste is bitter toasted malt that adds medium carbonation on the swallow, followed by more hops in a long finish. The bittering is dominant, keeping balance at bay.

bhensonb (13230) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from Wine & Cheese. Pours very dark cola with a tan head. Aroma is hints of milky chocolate, maybe a touch of vanilla, coffee?, but not particularly any burnt malt. Med body. Flavor is a touch of burnt malt, some milky chocolate (darkish, perhaps) and a fair amount of mixed resin/citrus/fruit hop. It’s not exactly dry, and it’s fairly bitter. Good black IPA.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 7, 2015
330 ml bottle drank at Les Vignerons. Dark brown, not entirely impossible to see through, with a nice, creamy, forever lasting beige head. Pleasent and very clean nose despite no actual trace of hops: milk chocolate, vanilla beans, slightly toasted malts and tons of nuts (especially almonds and hazelnuts). Taste follow suite, again with no hops taste nor presence (i.e. bitterness) but what’s in the glass is tasty and well crafted. Smooth mouthfeel with a mild chocolate sweetness and a hint of green coffee beans taste. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. If somebody told me this was a milk stout, I would have believed him.

chinchill (3592) - South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2015
From a bottle in Edinburgh. Clear and dark brown, looking nearly opaque in the glass. An IPA-level hop load fights with a strong load of very dark malts for dominance. .. the flavor doesn’t win. Flavor improve a bit with warming. Good balance in the aroma.
