330 ml bottle. BB 25/01/14. (Ølbutikken) Copenhagen, Denmark.
Black colour with a tiny white head. Grassy hoppy bitterness, dryness and some maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is grassy and resiny hops, bitterness, mild roasted malt and liquorice. Bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit thin.

Skinnyviking (7491) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2012
Courtesy of Rune. Bottle. Off-white high lasting creamy head. Very dark brown amost black body. Roasted malt coffee aroma with a nice hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden by the bitterness.

Pours dark red, almost black color with medium beige head. Aroma of fruits, hops, toasted malts and lemon. Flavor of lemon, hoppy fruits, toasted malts and some sweet berryish notes. Quite nice and fruity brew.

lusikka (6738) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with a thick white head. Aroma of strong, juicy and sweet fruits with floral hops. Flavour of roasted malts, strong floral hops, sweet juicy fruits, strawberries and wood. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, bitter and roasty finish with juicy fruits. Probably the most fruity black IPA I’ve tasted so far. Great stuff.

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2012
(Bottle, Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm) Black colour with lasting, frothy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with dark chocolate, liquorice, pine needles and dark rye bread. Malty, fruity taste with notes of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruit, liquorice and a piney bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. The expected piney bitterness is nicely balanced by a slightly surprising sweetish liquorice and malt character. Well balanced and really nice.

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2013
Big brown head. Opaque black body goes hazy deep dark brown at edges, through wich strong, fast carbonation can be spotted. Roasty earthy wine grape aroma with resiny spicy notes. Dry-sweetish resiny roasty spicy taste with earthy licorice notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry resiny chocolatey earthy aftertaste with spicy grapefruit notes. Nice, harmonic, drinkable. Fits well into the growing group of successful Danish black IPAs. (0.33l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

laiti (6425) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, copenhagen, BBE 25.01.2014
Aroma has hops with exotic fruits and no roastiness at all. Also some resin. Flavour is ashy with roastiness, some vanilla, strawberries and hops. A bit too ashy but good anyway.

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Very dark brwon. Bittersweet. Liquorice, quite herbal. Pleasant beer, but does not really take off.

kappldav123 (5307) - GERMANY - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle looks interesting. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Dry-hoppy aroma. Starts the same, dry and hoppy. Modest bitter. Some fruity hints. Finish more and more stout-like, less dry, intense malty. Quite drinkable. Nice!

gyllenbock (5306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle bought in Copenhagen, June 2012. Darker brown with a medium head. I think that this beer was nicely balanced, hops and roasted malt. Also chocolate and some dark chocolate. Pleasant, dry and bitter finish.
