Gachupines (1247) - USA - FEB 6, 2013
Black with a thin tan head. Aroma is big roasted chocolate malt. Slight hops in the nose. Flavor is strong roasted malt, definite notes of dark chocolate. Hops come through in the finish to add an almost spicy note to accent the chocolate. Reminded me of dark chocolate with chili without the burning. Really enjoying this.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6643) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a huge foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter with anise, chocolate and floral hops. The flavor was leafy floral and fruity hops with roasty malts, anise, perfume and a bit of black food coloring. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

mariuspoenari (1426) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2016
75cl bottle. Dark brown pour with a medium height tan head. Smells like caramel, pine, milk chocolate, milk coffee. Smooth mouthfeel with a very well balanced taste. Notes of milk chocolate, coffee, bitter hops, pine resin and some nice roasted malts in the aftertaste. Excellent.

Acid303 (668) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - DEC 19, 2015
65cl bottle, served in Irish pint. Pours deep dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is mocha, caramel and hints of citrus. Taste is the same, more dark chocolate notes than coffee, and the hop touch is earthy and herbal. Not too bitter, lingering though. Medium/full body, good carbonation. Nice Black Ipa.

martin00sr (2702) - Haderslev, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2015
Nearly black with thick tan froth. Strong hop aroma, dark chicolate and grapefruit. Flavour has juicy grapefruit, hard roasted malt and chocolate. Salty licorice as well, barely balancing the alcohol.

jgb9348 (5616) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Very dark brown and almost black body with a nice, three centimetre tall oatmeal tan coloured head. Aroma of bright grassy and resinous hops, some alcohol, quite a bit of malt and even more dank reesin notes. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich roasted malt flavour coupled with some coffee and chocolate flavours on the finish, coupled with a dense chewy mouthful of hops, earth and roasted oatmeal. Aftertaste is nice and rich with the malt and especially the resinous and grassy hops coming through along with some alcohol and sweetness from oatmeal and grains. Overall, a nicely balanced, very rich black IPA that almost borders on an American Strong, but this shows good throughout. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Leuken’s Liqour in Dunedin, Florida on 03-October-2015 for US$9,99 sampled in my hotel room in Columbia, Maryland on 07-December-2015.

Garrold (4129) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Bomber. Curious Hop, Otley. Clear, dark brown. Dense, sticky, gingery tan coloured, lasting head. Looks great. Nose has rich, dark, orange chocolate. Pine needle. Thick, dark sugars. Some toasted nuts. Taste has some charred, pine wood bitterness. Bonfire toffee sweetness balances nicely. Smooth, unctuous and super drinkable. Finishes long, moderate, roasted, resinous bitter. Fantastic.
