3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Black opaque liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of licorice, grass, tequila, chocolate, coffee, biscuit and booze. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice and booze. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Just about OK. Not hoppy enough for a BIPA.

Bottle at Black Sensation from the eternaly graceful and sexy Doc Mengele. Pours an opaque black with a diminishing beige head. Sweet and dry with aromas of coffee, caramel, berries, wood, dark chocolate and hints of spices... Medium bodied. Soft to medium carbonation. Dry and spicy finish... The berries and coffee+caramel kinda clash.

28/II/2012 500ml botle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Klaas’ place - BB: no date on bottle (2012-169) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!
Pitch black beer, big creamy beige head, unstable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: whiff of school bag banana (you know, when you took it out in the afternoon on a hot day and it was all mushy and warm), mocha, vanilla beans, tobacco, dark caramel, coffee. MF: soft carbon, full body,. Taste: alcoholic start, pretty sour and spicy. And I do mean hot spicy, like chili peppers. Also red berries, some caramel, sugar. Aftertaste: sour and sweet, mocha, coffee, lemony touch as well, cactus jenever. Very weird. Not bad, but I was happy I didn’t need to finish the bottle all by myself.

Bottle sample @ 2nd RBBSG, August 11th 2012. Courtesy of 77ship.
Brune foncée, col beige fin allant vers le moka.
Arôme malté grillé, note de tequila qui reste dans le bouquet sans vraiment dominer.
Palais, quasi impossible de deviner une BlackIPA la-dessous, note malté, grillé avec un pétillant qui domine, pointe de café et de Tequila venant en fin de bouche. Au final on s’y perd un peu, le houblon se retrouvant difficilement, et la Tequila a ce profile assez unique qui pour moi ne fait aps du meilleur effet pour cette version.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl Bottle @ RBBSG, courtesy of 77ships. Thanks Eugene. Black coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small off white head. Strong roasted alcoholic hinted aroma with some strange hints, almost like paint or thinner. Full palate. Finish is strong roasted malty with a light alcoholic almost sour hint. Very strange, still ok, but not really my thing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an opaque black with a brownish head. Quite a tart aroma, woody, roasty combined with a distinct note of tequila. Quite full-bodied, roasted malt, rotten fruit and what appears to be lots of bugs from the barrel. Again a distinct tequila edge leading to a warming alcohol finish. Hard to chew really. 310112
