Pours black with nice small mocha head. Burning pipe tobacco, charcoal, maybe a little skunk and some faint citrus offer an aroma that is original if not appealing. Body is fairly thin in first instance, it gathers some steam but is ultimately disappointing. Flavours are muddled and oppressed by a really repugnant growing roasted-malt (primarily coffee) bitterness which carries to the finish. Yuk, this really isn’t for me.

ElManana (986) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle at Leuven Innovation Beerfestival, thanks for sharing! Besides the Whiskey Sour garbage probably the beer I liked the least of Siren. Roast, coffee, expected much more bitter hops.

markextrae (1903) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
sampled from bottle at LIBF, poured a murky dark brown colour with a tanned head, nose of sweet bakers chocolate, cacao, dark espresso bean, floral hops, grapefruit, caramel malts, roast, earth, resin, sweet milk chocolate, herbal cooked hops, pine bitterness, had the feeling that i was drinking 2 different beers. not balanced at all IMO

sebletitje (7492) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle sample @ Leuven Beer Innovation 2015, shared with the RB Belgian crew. Brune un peu claire, col beige. Arôme aux notes maltées alternant grillé, caramel, pointe choco et un accompagnement houblonné fort réussi tirant bonne mesure des houblons C, retrouve les notes agrumes, résineux avec un léger tropical. Palais est malté, pâle, léger grillé et fine touche chocolatée, rétro houblonné agrumes et surtout agréable léger profil résineux. Passe bien restant très légère, complexe dans son usage des houblons, mais dont les propriétés de pas mal se recoupent.

Alengrin (3030) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
English BIPA with stable, off-white, light beige head and very dark bronze colour, approaching black but still transparent. Lovely ’dank’ aroma of pine resin and pine needles, grapefruit, orange peel, thyme, wormwood, coffee, bitter chocolate and caramel; fruity onset but ’clean’, dried plums and candied figs, nice spicy hints over a smooth, caramelly and eventually restrainedly roasted bitter malt basis, paving the way for a wonderfully aromatic, ethereal, citrussy and piny hop bitter finish, long and satisfying. Very good black IPA.

JorisPPattyn (8343) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Due to artificial coloured illumination, appearance not estimable, arbitrary 4/5 ’Dark’ C-hops, but also grapey , like Nelson Sauvin. Bit of caramel or toffee to sniff. Dry,a shes, dried hops, dried dark bread. Light body, but quite some slickness. Not so special, but bring it on anyway!

77ships (5089) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2015
Thanks for sharing! Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Dark brown, little mocha head. Nose is herbal, sweet, milk chocolate, chunky cacao, tad watery, not much hops,… Taste is dull plaster yeast, herbal, cacao sweet, basic chocolate milk, dull, yeasty, herbal & fizzy. Okay but boring.

I’m a fan of black brews, and I’m a fan of hoppy beers... So this is something that just have to score enought to drink again.

Gerbeer (2272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours black with full light tan head. Aromas of pine, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavors of pine and coffee. Somewhat light in body and acidic on the finish.
