Vaiz (3617) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasty, somewhat meaty, fruity, spicy, some caramel and quite complex. Flavor is well balanced, bitter, roasted and with a decent caramel sweet body. A hint of funk, but a good one. Very low carbonation though, but it doesn’t matter here. Nice one.

erickok (3959) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 17, 2015
Almost black and light tan head. Dark malts, toasty, cereal mixed in with piney and floral hops. Good mix, well chosen and the fermentation is nice and clean too. Taste is interesting, not quite as chocolatey as I like my ipa’s and a bit too acidic too. Feels a bit alcoholic and herbal potipouri like. Hmmm not quite matching my personal taste in black ipa’s. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
