rami_pl (1562) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Butelka, warka do 12/16. bardzo ciemne z bardzo wysoka acz niepiekna, ciut brazowawa piana. Aromaty bardzo intensywne, glownie zywicowo-iglakowe, do tego zboza jakies ewidentne, ciut - juz w tle kawowych jakichs i palonych klimatow. w ustach dosc wodniste wrazenie, ale nie przeszkadza za bardzo, bo intensywne smaki zgodne z aromatami, moze nawet ciut wiecej w smaku, owoce jakies sie pojawiaja leciutkie. goryczka nie wysoka ale raczej niezaprzyjemna i dluga. spore wysycenie. Sredniak.

Vinx (104) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2016
Aroma of tropical fruit, cirtus, pine, resin. Black with an excessive foam which is barely manageable. Bitter, medium body, lively carbonation, astringent finish. In a word: discordant.

jjsint (2123) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from Ales by Mail, drunk at home. Black with a petite and tight cream-coloured head. Salt liquorice, chocolate-covered cherries, plums, pine needles. Bittersweet taste with a more pronounced bitter finish. More pine and liquorice in the aftertaste. Thin to.medium body, soft carbonation. Excellent, excellent, excellent, at a wonderfully boozy ABV.

alteregoo (745) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Piwo jest przegazowane, olbrzymia piana wolno opada pozwalając na dolewkę piwa o ciemno brązowej barwie. Aromat intensywny, głównie świerkowy, leśny, "zielony", gdzieś w tle odrobina kawy... W smaku również dominuje żywica i iglaki, odrobina świeżych cytrusów, likierowe nutki a całości dopełnia niewielka ilość kawy i kakao. Goryczka średnia, żywiczno grejpfrutowa. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewający, jakiś miętówkowy aftertejs. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, agresywne, półpełne w odbiorze.
Całkiem niezłe, intensywnie nachmielone BIPA, niestety zbyt wysokie CO2 umniejsza walory smakowe.

Black IPA muy buena. Un aroma espectacular, dulce. La primera impresión es fresca, con gas y sabor, y al final deja un regusto al lúpulo y un punto a regaliz.

mgajdaczewa (1522) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Jedno z tych black ipa, które chcą pachnieć jak jasne. W aromacie słodkie tropikalne owoce, nieco cytrusa, pod koniec też wyłazi ciut słonecznika i żywic, ok. W smaku podobnie, przoduje chmiel, słodko, tropikalnie, acz soczystość mogłaby być wyższa, muśnięcie ciemnego słodu, stosunkowo niska goryczka, pijalne i zdradliwe, bo nie słabe przecież... Porządne.

PowY (99) - - JUN 11, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a large light brown head. The aroma is very hoppy full of grapefruit with some floral notes. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. The flavor is medium bitter with some fruity acidity. The taste is again very fruity full of grapefruits and some lychee that dominates over the roasted malt.

Taste: bitter start, very hoppy, citrus, bit malty, some caramel, lovely stuff! Aftertaste: bitter hops, melons, pretty bitter, slightly roasted touch, that’s how I like my black ipa’s! ;-)

Rune (10838) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2016
330ml bottle, 8.5 % abv, from Habemus Birra. Huge, bubbly, fawn-coloured head with fine duration and leaving clingy lacing on the glass. Deep black body added by a brownish glint. Mixed nose of roasted malts and sappy citrus, inviting. Roasted malty aroma of dark chocolate nicely blended with red oranges. Lingering malt-fruity bitterness to the ending. Full to medium bodied and a well blended version of the style (hotel room, Alicante 03.06.2016).
