Werckmeister (2042) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 7, 2016
0,33l bottle at home. BB 08/2016. almost black color, medium big tan head. smells of grass, herbs, peppery, spices, light veggies, light roast, decent smell. full body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of spices, grass, light roast, herbs, earthy, light coffee, a bit harsh grainy, light veggies. finishes lightly roasted and lightly bitter with some grass and herbs and earthy hops. overall decent, I get some light vegetable notes on both taste and smell, which is a bit distracting, but overall drinkable.

Vili (245) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2015
33cl bottle. Black pour with extremely thick, light brow head, lots of lacing. Aromas of dark bread, fresh grass and caramel. Taste is medium bitter, dry and little sweet. Medium carbonation and really thick palate. Aftertaste is dark bread with nice side of bitterness. Really good black IPA, even the rye works nicely.

olsvammel (5805) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle at a big tasting (Nördprovning 2015). Light hoppy and grassy smell. Similar taste. The hops has faded but the dark malts gives it a nice backbone. Some roasted but not allot. Peppery malts.

Alengrin (4429) - BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2015
Dutch take on the much discussed ’black IPA’ style. Very dark mahogany colour, as good as black, under a thick, lacing, dense, light beige head. Pleasant and strong aroma of citrussy hops and dark malts - this is a black IPA alright. I get impressions of grapefruit peel, bitter weeds, bourbon, some fondant chocolate, roasted meat, biscuit, a lot of pine resin, sourish rye bread dough, bitter honey, freshly cut nettles, liquorice candy, dried leaves, roasted chestnuts, burning oak, field flowers - the sequoia forests of the West are not far away even though this beer is made in the Netherlands. Taste begins with dried fruits, restrainedly sweetish, some candi sugar lurking in the background but deciding not to interfere; medium carbonation, just enough for this style. Smooth and resinous mouthfeel, dark malts playing the basses in the middle phase, a bit caramelly and very nutty, as liquid roasted chestnuts; a suggestion of pine resin is omnipresent, but subtly so. The presence of sourish spicy rye adds complexity, as does a spicy yeastiness; the finish is a complex of lingering nutty malt sweetishness, warming gin-like alcohol and, as expected, a profound, drying hoppiness pairing leafy ’bassoon’ hops with peppery and floral ’violin’ hops, long and quenching. I love this ale’s bitterness, paired beautifully with drinkability and complexity at the same time. Another great piece of work from the Netherlands!
