33cl bottle @ home. Opaque, pitch black color with a medium sized, fair lacing, light brown colored head. Smell malts, some coffee, a hint of hops and some roastyness. Taste is heavy malty, heavy bitter, roasted malts and burned coffee. Medium carbonation, medium body.

Les Trois 8, Paris tap: Pours dark brown with a loose head. Aroma is chocolate and weed. Taste is bitter with roasted malts coming out in force. Very light but pretty damn good.

Flaska från La Cave a Bulles, Paris. Närmast helt svart öl med ett rikligt smutsvitt skum. Det räcker nästan att bara få dofta på ölen, med kaffe, rostad malt, en lätt rökighet och en fruktig humle. Det är av förklarliga skäl (3,5%) tämligen tunt. Jag tänker att vilken fantastisk öl detta hade varit med ytterligare några procent. Jag tänker också att det är rätt trevligt att kunna få sig en BIPA som inte är alltför alkoholig; ibland vill man ju bara ha en god öl utan att det ska susa i huvudet. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, kaffe, mörk choklad och rostad malt. Bra beska. Högst njutbar.

Black with off white head - Very good hop aroma - Mlat body that is alittel bit thin, but still have a nice hop profile with biterness - Hop bitterness goes into the finish - A littel bit thin on the malt side, but still good

Valeri8 (3) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2014 does not count
Capolavoro assoluto!! MAi bevuta una Black Ipa così, bassa gradazione...molto bassa e, un’esplosione di sapori e un’amarezza proninciata che non è mai banale e ben sposata con il torrefatto. Semplocemente un CAPOLAVORO

On tap at Festibière festival in Gembloux. Very special hoppy and bitter black beer, surprisingly complex for such a low abv. Good stuff!

Bonne amertume, épices, agrumes. Facile à boire sans tomber dans la facilité. Agréable surprise vu le petit % d’alcool.

Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Black body with a big beige head. Roasty aroma with grass, mango, light smoke hints. Thin body, but at 3,5% that’s really no fault. Quite bitter taste, coffee and hops, with a dense grapefruit sting. Dry roasty finish, light fruity. Surprisingly massive in taste considering the strength, it’s not my first go-to-bipa, but for a sessionable one it’s a pearl.

Yves (2484) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2014
Shared with wim at wim’s place. Black colored beer with medium diminishing off-white head and no carbonation visible. Malty hopped coffee aroma. Full sparkling and creamed palate. Finish is hopped bitter coffee hinten ending a bit roasted. Nice one, certainly for the low alcohol percentage.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
On tap @ Haandfest 2014. As good as black in the glass and it has a small grey ish islandy and lacing head. In the nose it’s light minerrallish dry roasted. Traces of dry chocolate and cold coffee. A faint licorice trace here as well. It’s quite flavorful for being such a little guy. Softly roasted, really minerallish, some dry cocoa. Near flat but some prickling left and it’s quite thin in the mouth. Ends quite mouthdrying and almost a little chalky. All in all not a bad one. 24.05.2014
