We could tell you it’s a black IPA, and if we did we would be letting you into a great secret. But as you don’t believe in black IPA, you can just pass over this beer and move back to your dark mild as after all, black beer shouldn’t taste this good.

33cl bottle. Bbe 19.03.2016. Dark brown in color, the head is huge and thick, lasts. Ashy roasty aroma with citrus fruits in there, nicely hopped. Flavor has dark chocolate, ash, slight burntness, roasted malt, hops and Grapefruit. Massive. Mice bitter bite in finish. Is this only 5,6 abv? Wow. Really tasty black IPA, I like the ashy notes here. Solid. Hops lingering long afterwards in my mouth.

Brązowe, klarowne, z ładną beżową piana i świetnym lacingiem. Aromat kwaśny, porzeczkowy z delikatna nutą czekolady. W smaku dość pusty, brak ciała, delikatne nuty czekolady, ale głownie ciemne słody. Kiepskie jak na Black IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (9364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Dark red to slightly brown color, huge a bit soapy off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is a but faint or perhaps I don’t get any aroma because of the huge head. Taste malts, slightly roasty, lightly bitter, a touch of oxidation. I miss the hops and some fruityness.
