finol (2934) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and licorice. Smooth brew with a taste of roasted malts and chocolate. A bit like a hoppy, drinkable porter.

_angst_ (4351) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2016
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours pretty much black with a small dark mocha head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and slightly herbal with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, grapefruit juice, mango, peaches, dark roast coffee, liquorice, moist soil and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, malty, tiny fruity and herbal. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny dry, astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee and grapefruit. Solid BIPA. Nothing extreme.

caesar (6425) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2016
Bottle @ Benzai, medium sample. Dark brown color, medium frothy brown head. Aroma of fruity hops, grapefruit, bit pine, fair amount of roast, dark chocolate. Getting towards a hoppy porter almost with the choc and roast. Medium bitter in taste, nicely balanced between roasty bitterness and hoppy bitterness. Slight hint of licorice. Good balance, good beer.

Benzai (12594) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2016
Bottle [from trade with Abitker] @ home shared with Caesar. Opaque dark brown to black color, full sized brown colored head. Both aroma and flavor are a very nice mix of malts, lightly chocolate malts, roast and hops. Malts and hops blended together incredibly well, perfectly balanced. Medium body and suitable carbonation. Rightfully in the Black IPA top 50 if you ask me.

coldbrewky (1666) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Ahhh another superbly crafted brew from MBC. Dark slick and lucious. nose of black patent malt, some hops and oysters. Same keeps with body but hops abound and oyster fades to mellow. Chocolate replaces. Yum

Franckg (987) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2016 Embouteillée le 19/01/2016, bue après 2 mois. Robe noire opaque surmonté d’un beau col de mousse blanchâtre dense, collant et laiteux. Arômes de malt rôti, café, agrumes, pointes de chocolat noir, léger poivre. Le nez est superbe. Un équilibre presque sans faille entre les deux styles. C’est frais et leger. En bouche, on reste dans le malt rôti et les agrumes (pamplemousse et orange surtout). Suivent ensuite le chocolat noir, un peu de noix grillées, grains de café. L’arrière-goût laisse une petite sensation de fumée/cendre. La finale est plutôt amère et où se sont les houblons qui dominent avec un soupçon de café. Texture laiteuse et corps moyen. Excellente black ipa et ma meilleure bière de MB après quelques "déceptions".
