3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a stout - a slightly hoppy stout, but a stout all the same. No balance, very roasty with a mild hop finish. Missing a mid section. Left me a bit cold on an even colder night.

Malt and licorice flavors but not much from the hops. Doesn’t really feel like an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a deep dark black with a small tan head that lasted for a good full minute. What there is of the lacing is spotty and slides down the glass slowly. The smell is basically roasted coffee beans with a bit of dark chocolate. The hops are very faint in the background. The taste is dominated by the roasted coffee beans with some malts coming back. The palate is about a medium with a decent level of carbonation and is mostly smooth and very creamy. Overall, not a bad beer, I’d probably get this again.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Dobre piwo, i choć pierwszy raz stykam się z gatunkiem BIPA to nie wyczuwam tego chmielu jak w jasnych IPA. Jest palono słodowe i lekko goryczkowe tylko. Koloru czarnej nocy. Przypomina mi to Stouta.

21-DEC-2012, bottle @home, from Systembolaget, present from Erik.
Dark brown with lasting high tan head.
Chocolate aroma or perhaps more like cocoa powder with some tea-like and citric hops.
Taste the same. Bit dusty chocolate, roasted malt, not a lot of hops here, though. Tired?
Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE Jan 20 2013 [the sticker on the bottle tells 20130531 but the printing on the neck tells the earlier date], courtesy of rosenbergh, 20121214) The beer poured deep dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had malts, chocolate, sweetness and hops. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour had roasted malts, sweetness, liquorice, lighlty hop flavours and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, roasty and bitter. Not an IPA and not a stout either; some weird combination of the style not showing any of the good characteristics really.
