Elwood (3064) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2012
I got kossed by Papsoe with this 330 ml. bottle. Thanks H! It pours a murky dark brown with a large tan head. The nose has a bit of light pine and anise. The flavor has some pumpernickel, rye, anise, and that pine note. A little maltier than most of the black IPAs I’ve tried, but I like it. It seems to move it a hair closer to a porter and that’s okay with me. Delightfully different.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle, 33 cl. Unclear brown with an orange hue and a frothy beige head. Fruity aroma of grapefruit, peachs and tropical fruits. Some biscuity notes too. Flavor is sweet malty, some roasty notes with hints of licorice and cocoa dancing tete a tete with a heavy dose of fruity and light grassy hops. Dry bitter finish, easy drinkable.

jesperhammer (2865) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2012
10-MAR-2012, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken". Pours very dark brown, almost black with huge beige head that lasts and coats the glass. Very hoppy nose. Grape fruit and pine. OK, some roasted notes as well, but hops dominate. Same with the taste but the roasted malts are more evident, thougt. A touch of coffee and chocolate combined with the very strong hop profile. Fantastic brew.

visionthing (2685) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 19, 2012
33cl bottle from Kihoskh. Pours very dark, almost black with a nice beige head. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit, some tropical fruits and also roasted malt and hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Hops dominate at first but the darker aromas presents themselves after a while. Alcohol is well integrated. Surprisingly light body. Light to medium sweet with medium bitterness. Hoppy, bitter finish with hints of alcohol and roasted malt. Quite nice and surprisingly easy to drink. Nice BIPA!

daje (2254) - NORWAY - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle, shared june 22nd 2013. Muddy dark brown "cola colored" body, big light brown head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruits and grass, with strong roasted mat. Taste follows due with intense roasted malt and an explosion of fruit, peach, pineapple, mango, and caramel. Salt licorice finds its way into the finish, with a high nice bitterness. One solid CDA for sure.
