vadie (633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
Coleur noir avec une grande mousse marron. Une arôme très interessante. D’abord, quand il reste encore de la mousse il y a une arôme de molasse avec du malt. Ensuite, après que la mousse est rétréci un peu, c’est un arôme très complexe. Je trouve du cantaloupe, rasins, fruits, molasse, chocolat, et un goût sucré que je ne peut pas nommer. Chaque fois que je le senti le parfum subtil est unique, mais le sucré reste. Le goût est légèrement sucré, ça peu être du molasse ou même du chocolat (mais plutôt du molasse) avec une finale légèrement amer et une finale de malt. C’est très onctueux et facile a boire. Carbonation moyenne avec les bulles très douces.

DeliriumT (354) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2013
Pours black and velvety. Aroma is fresh and hoppy with undertones of robust stouty smells. The flavour is impossibly smooth with rich smokey malt flavour balanced beautifully with a whack of fresh hop ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lilja (1552) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Smak och doft av kffe, choklad, läder, rök och tjära och en aning vanilj. Välbalanserad med en trevlig beska. Förmedla känslan av en rököl. Väldigt gott.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
0.5l bottle from Liberty Wine Merchants on Commercial. Pours an opaque black with a thick brown head. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma: Heavy on the grapes. Lots of molasses here too. Hints of coffee, cinnamon, maple syrup, caramel, ginger. Lots of malt here. Taste: Not as sweet as the aroma hints at. Starts with medium sweetness, then quickly switches to slight bitterness, then tails off with hints of faint sweetness. Much more of a roasty hint in the flavour than in the aroma. Palate: Thick bodied, highly carbonated, slightly dry finish. Interesting beer. A bit disappointed with the taste, but it smells wonderfully.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2013
Deep brown with a offwhite medium head. Aroma of cider and some smoke. Taste is really peated aswell, with some hops towards the finish. Smoke is too dominant in my opinion.

Lowenbrau (1883) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 26, 2013
500ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Smoky aromas. Pours very dark, cloudy, with nice tan headm creamy and persistent, some lacing. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is mainly smoky, with some hidden bitter notes, among with coffee and cacao ones. Nice one, but it would be better classified as rauchbier instead of Black IPA.
