Pyrmont (8) - - NOV 15, 2014 does not count
Fine malted smell. Good taste at first, but there are much after-taste, which leave it a little bit boring. Nice dark/black color.

gegwilson (1450) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Pours mahogany with a good foamy cream head. Pine in the aroma and flavour, but not overly prominent. Plenty of roasty flavour. Creamy coffee and a little liquorice. Enjoyable.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Green hoppy aroma of grass, gooseberry and citrus. Soft, creamy mouthfeel luckily dominating the astringent bitterness, with a pleasant maltiness providing the beer with notes of earth, chocolate and forest fruit. Quaffable and tasty.

SNL (302) - - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours very dark, small tan head. Not much IPA nose or taste, reminded me mostly of a porter. Soft carbonation, heavy body.

rosenbergh (7363) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2014
330 ml bottle. BB Oct/2014. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Pours black with almost no head... well there’s a tiny tan ring. Quite mild aroma of sweet malt, some port wine or sherry, some dryish liquorice and mild hoppy bitterness. The flavour is... very interesting for a Black IPA. Roasted malt, bitter hops, port wine or sherry, mild whiskey notes and lots of sweetness in the flavour. I’m not sure if this is a Black IPA but nevertheless it’s quite nice brew to drink.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
Jamedra (559) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 23, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je velmi lahodné, připomíná karamel doplněný o tóny ovoce (meloun) a žvýkačky, jsou zde také znát lehké podtóny kávy. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná, nízká a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je temná. Chuť má velmi autentický nádech kávy s velmi výrazným, šťavnatě ovocným komponentem, připomínající melounovou šťávu smíchanou s pomerančem, finiš je středně kávově hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o pivní delikatesu s lahodným aroma a velmi příjemnou, dobře spojenou chutí.

Borresteijn (4917) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
33cl Bottle, tfs R&J! Almost black, beige head. Aroma is dry, stout-like, light hoppy. Flavour is dry, light fruity, red fruits, coffee, decent bitterness, some citrus, bitter hoppy finish. Light-bodied. Not very outspoken.

Plovmand (6592) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a creamy dense beige head. The aroma is citrussy and had notes of oranges, light toasted malt and milder notes of licorice. The flavor is pine, citrus, licorice and has a bitter grassy and citrussy finish.
