fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle(donker) pours very dark brown almost black with a 2 finger light tan head. Plenty of floaties. Smells like roasted barley, spent coffe grinds, and thin alcohol. The mouth is super creamy and matches the tons of dark malt in the flavor. There is some smokiness and a little bit of chocolate. I love how malty it is. The mouth compliments the roasty flavors very well.

nuplastikk (4133) - 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.

drpimento (2103) - 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.

diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2009
Bottle Deep brown to black, clear body. Creamy/fizzy, small head that diminishes fastly. Aroma of mint chocolate ("after eight"), molasses, caramel, medicine, ... bit weird. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour which is also quite medicinal but nice.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2012
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.

Bov (9068) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 6, 2008
from crackedkettle.com - pours a hazy dark ruby-brown colour, solid and persistent creamy beige foam; aroma of ginger, bread and apple; sweet and juicy, low carbonation and a respectable malt body; finishes a bit sticky and bitter with a long bready and gently fruity aftertaste

Borresteijn (4410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2009
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Bottle almost exploded upon opening, leaving just enough to sample the beer. Unclear reddish brown colour, creamy off white to beige head. Thick aroma of caramel, malts, molasses, anise, a hint of mint. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel/toffee/fudge, some yeast, some subdued sour spiciness. Light bitter finish. Fullbodied, soft, light prickly mouthfeel. Tasty beer.
