Dedollewaitor (13923) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2012
50cl Bottle. Trade with Xerenthar. Thanks. Pours black with a creamy thick beige head and lacings. Nose is roast, coffee, dark fruit, piney hops and wood. Intense and complex. Flavor is wood - mild red wine like, hops, funk and coffee roast. Smooth, slick and soft. Hoppy finish. The guy is a genius!

nimbleprop (4881) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Oily opaque black with some tan head. Nose of coffee, hop pellets, very dank, chocolate, earthy, wet soil. Flavor is even better, sweet, chocolate, pine, grapes, earthy, coffee grounds, dried lemon peel. Full bodied, earthy finish. A little hot. Really earthy. For those who don’t think black IPAs work, you have to try this. Plenty of coffee/porter flavor and plenty of citrus/IPA flavors. Excellent.

beernbourbon (1302) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle thanks to mtgoat in recent trade, thanks! Pour is near black with a medium light brown head. aroma is earthy with hints of roasted malt, pine hop, notes of old basement, and a touch of grape. Flavor is complex. Ash and roasted malt up front with a green pine hop notes following. Finish is long and earthy with notes of grape, tobacco, and faint spice. A complex offering. Lots going on here and a style i usually dont care for, but a winner in my book.

pushkinwow (2015) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
500ml bottle from Tom10101. Dark brown with a slight red hue and a dark biege head that fades to nothing unless you want to swirl it around. Lots of resin with light citrus hops, oak and some smoke, tannins, roasted malts. Moderate to low carbonation, moderate to full body, somewhat sweet with an intense bitterness underneath, becomes dry and some alcohol with tannins.

daknole (9115) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Well fuck yeah this one is amazing. Almost black with a fluffy light brown head. The nose is a red wine, toasty, chocolate lovers dream. Grassy hops, milk chocolate. And a crazy hint of kids watercolor paint. Flavor is toasty and hoppy. Chocolate, light vinous notes. Resiny finish. Bold yet delicate. Wow.

joeneugs (3250) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
500 ml bottle. It pours a dark brown color with a really nice, thick lasting tan head. The aroma is potently citrusy, fruity and floral with mild vinous notes, cocoa, spice and barely any wood. The flavor has much more of the wine barrel influence. Up front it’s very strong with a combination of grapefruit, licorice, red wine, spice and pine. Little oak near the finish. The alcohol feels strong here, but the body is not overly thick. The finish is bitter and vinous. Really well balanced and well done as usual.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, well-tanned head that never fully dissipates. The restrained aroma presents subtle notes of dark chocolate and bong water. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is mostly sweet, furnishing tawny port and dark chocolate. Finishes crisp, sweet and a touch nutty.

JAXSON (528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours black with a tight, creamy beige head, fine lacing of tiny bubbles. Nose is black licorice, anise, sweet dark berries reminding me of the same barrel presence in Birth of Tragedy. Also a nice collage of earth and pine. Flavor is quite roasted, much more so than in the nose, with some sweet dark berries as it opens, piney hops on the finish. Interesting experiment, to me it brings out some of the great fruity qualities of Birth of Tragedy, though in a much different package.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Poured a black color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of roast, earthy, wood, chocolate, and pine. Tastes of roast, earth, dark chocolate, some coffee, wood, and some wine.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Pours very murky dark brown swampy in color with a creamy bright cocoa head. The aroma brings sweet winey barrel a little more prevalent than citrusy hop flavors that are present, but a beautiful blend overall. The flavor brings bitter orange notes from the hops that seem nicely enhanced by the wine barrel flavors that help give a dry ending.
