Bottle shared at Darkness day. Pours dark brown with minimal head. Smell some smoke and slight wood. Taste some booze with slight hops and floral malts. Good beer.

Bottle. Nice dark pour with a smaller head. Rich dark fruit to this. Damn near a sour. Very delicious.

12oz bottle, thanks to FlandersNed! Cap reads 11-10... 3 yr old Black IPA, we’ll see how this goes. Very dark brown, almost black color. Thin off-white, light brown head. Leaves plenty, thicker, dotty lace. Big body. Lightly sticky in the finish, light drying though. Smooth, lighter, lightly soft carbonation. Not too difficult to sip. This is surprisingly not bad, for the age, actually pretty tasty. Like a big black barleywine. Hop is pretty much just an earthy, lightly piney muddled character, but there’s a lot of good bitter taste to counter balance the malty sweetness. Very nice big heavy roast malt aroma that lasts long into the finish, some licorice, hint of dark chocolate. Solid imperial stout -like characteristics. Some bite in the finish if more than small sip is taken. Overall, better than expected, and a very interesting (and rare) experience that I’m happy to have had. Would have been interesting to try this fresh, though..

Bottle @ home via trade with deyholla, I believe. Thanks! Pours a bit murky black appearance with a dark brown head. Chewy herbal yeasty, dark chocolate, somewhat spicy, minty/piney aroma that really has the house character of the Kuhnhenn yeast. Tangy, orange zesty, fairly citrusy, Belgian chocolate, chewy yeasty, minty, light toffee flavor. Honesty, this tastes pretty strong but is super smooth for the 11% abv. Also, pretty unbelievable that this has held up so well. I’ve had this bottle for near a year and god knows how long deyholla had it before me, but it’s still super tasty.

[4940-20121116] 355mL bottle. Light orange hops has a smoky soya sauce note in the aroma. Hazy, dark brown body with a quick foamy tan head. More floral malt and smoky soya and bitter burnt citrus peel in the flavour. Medium-full body. Bit of a surprise sneak-attack tastiness. (8/3/8/3/16) 3.8

Opaque black beer, small tan head. Milky malt and a little sourness on the nose. Light palate, mild carbonation, slightly dry. Sweet and light dark malt. Aniseed, coca cola and a little chocolate. Some yeast. All joins up seamlessly in to quite a unique beer. Tasty dark treat!

2012-11-16. Dark brown body with a nice tan head. First smell of ethanol blows off, sweet fruity malt, alcohol. Flavour is similar, sweet malt, sugar, herbal character, warming alcohol. 7+ Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Pretty decent, but just a bit too boozy for my preference. Bottle, note on cap says 12/2011 via trade with flandersned

Deep brown pour with a fast-fading head. The aroma is sort of sweet and spicy. A sort of black licorice character and a touch of a minty character as well. A leathery sort of character as well. A little bit of soft character and some decent earthiness. Cocoa and some earthy bitterness. A lovely brew actually. A little bit of peppery ethanol up front but it fades quickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
