Bottle shared. Surprisingly nice for the abv, tasty pineapple touch, gentle roasty base. Not my thing usually but definitely gets extra points for its sessionability.

allmyvinyl (9448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from eebria shared with Stuu666. Pours clear dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas of light chocolate, faint roast. Taste is more of the same. Much more of a stout than a black ipa. Quite thin. Bitterness comes through at the end, finally.

ruigo (2318) - PORTUGAL - JUN 14, 2016
33cl bottle. Black / dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, coffee and roasted malts in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is bitter with roasted and fruity notes. Overall, a good beer than I wouldn’t say that has only 3.5% ABV.

Bière rouge très noire assez amère. On y décèle un goût de fruit. Banane? Étrange boisson!

lbianchi66 (318) - FRANCE - MAY 27, 2016
Robe noire et opaque avec une belle mousse beige. Arômes résineux, herbal, agrumes et fumé. Goût café, chocolat, résine. Le résineux reste en bouche. Texture plutôt fluide. Une très bonne bière.

Bawelt (544) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 9, 2016
Ne au fond torréfié, fumé, un peu de boisé léger, de l’herbe sèche, quelques agrumes. Bouche plutôt légère, aqueuse. Attaque pas trop timide, amertume sèche et franche, un peu de torréfaction, pas mal de verdure, les agrumes s’effacent derrière le côté herbal. On trouve une petite rondeur de caramel fumé en fond. Longueur très sèche, amère. Le gros plus : on a quand même du goût, des arômes, le tout pour très peu d’alcool ! Pas la bière de l’année mais franchement buvable.

mR_fr0g (9220) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle at home bought from a bottle shop in Lausanne Switzerland. Black / dark brown with reddy hues coloured pour with a big rocky light cream head. Aroma is initially pretty juicy tropical fruits, with melon and peach, with hints of singed pine and some dry roast, Flavour is composed of toasted nutty malts, dry roast, fruity peach melba, mango hop, little pine, dry roast finish with a little charred earth. Palate is a little bitty, dry, highish carbonation. Packs in good flavour for 3.5%. In fact i can scarcely believe it is 3.5%. Can we have a session BIPA category please?

Bue avec Emilien, François, Pap en accompagnement d’un gâteau au chocolat. Bière noire et relativement légère (en bouche, elle fait plus que ses 3,5%). Bol col de mousse qui tient quasi indéfiniment. Arôme de pamplemousse très poussé (on croirait qu’il y en a dedans) et d’orange (moins évident). Amertume assez franche en final et goût café mais bien estompée par le gâteau au chocolat, ce qui laisse un peu de place aux côtés fruités des agrumes. Belle découverte bien que ce ne soit vraiment pas notre style de bière.
