33cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Holy black IPA batman, this beer rocks. Brune col fin beige. Arôme est houblonné, malté avec un beau bouquet grillé sur des notes de houblons fleuri et herbacé, pointe de chocolat et café au lait. En bouche, malt bien présent avec pour moi toutes les caractéristiques d’une black IPA. Note cara avec en retrait un houblon qui vient rajouter une belle balance en amertume laissant des pointes de fleuri et de houblon judicieusement bien placées. Le fini reste sec rappelant les grains concassés.

Hazy dark red-brown beer. Milky sweet malt nose. Light semi dry palate. Light toffee caramel very well blended coca cola and fruit. Whispers of nuts and milk chocolate - very subtle. Finishes semi dry. Interesting little beer.

drpimento (2316) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Not bad, not bad. Poured at a good temperature with a lovely, massive, thick, foam, frothy, billowy, light tan head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is an appealing clear, amber brown with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is malt, yeast, bread dough, rye, fruit. Flavor’s like nose, is fairly well balanced between, sweet, bitter, and carbonic tang, with sweet on top, then bitter wiith the tang not so strong but the action of fhe carbonation perfectly offsetting the other two main characteristics. Body is good. Finish is like flavor, fairly long and has a little booziness. Good drinking beer.

Hazy red colour. Sweet, fruity aroma with some yeast. Quite a harsh metallic flavour with lots of yeast. A little red fruit sweetness comes through in the finish.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Huge explosion. Pours a fading beige head with a cola-brown body. Aromas of dark dried fruit and dark sugar. Flavors of candied sugar and figs, dates, plums. Finish is dry.

nuplastikk (4852) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2011
11.2oz bottle. Quite lively, exploding gusher when poured. Steady monstrous head. Clean, minty chocolate aroma. This really comes off to me as a Belgian Black IPA, not overbearing, but really quite similar. Such an explosive thick layer of head, I can’t get much aroma. Sweet and rich, bitter chocolate covered hop tones. A really tasty beer, approaching the mint flavor of a girl scout cookie. A really nice beer.

Bottle. Major gusher! Olive drab pour with gushing off white head. Nose of prune, water taffy, yeast, dark fruits and sweet malt. Grainy barley and muted dark fruit mouth feel with a light to medium body.
