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.

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!

Fresh apple-like hoppy and sugarcane/yeasty aroma. Big off-white head. Really dark colour. Full body like wine and some wooden flavour , chocolate, coffee and a bit of liquorice. Dry bitter sweet aftertaste. Surprising!

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Hazy dark nut brown. Generous citrus aroma - tangerine and grapefruit with notes of licorice. Mid dry with solid body and well rounded mouthfeel. Lychee and tangerine dominates, notes of licorice. Marked bitter finish. Well made with distinct flavours.

Aroma has light roasted malt. A touch of fruitiness too. Not an overpowering hop flavour, the roasted grains are well represented.
