fkoolen (670) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2014
Beautiful bottle. Deep dark brown colour, big foamy beige head. Surprisingly sweet hoppy nose with citrus fruits, strawberry but also some porter/stout tones to be distinguished like (roasted) coffee and cacao. These tones come back in the taste with mainly sweetness and citrus hops in the mouth and a roasty, dry aftertaste: near perfectly balanced, surprising and complex. Firm body, relatively high carbonation but very drinkable with a pleasant mouthfeel. Definitely a beer I’d recommend.

Prachtig etiket, bijna zwart met crčme kop. Lekker op smaak, alleen net te branderige mout smaak.

kalervo (896) - FINLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Decent moderately hopped black IPA. Lots of roasted malts with a hint of coffee. With a more edgy bitterness this could have been really really good.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2014
(Draught at ’t IJ, Amsterdam, 28 Feb 2014) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, cocoa, spruce needles and grapefruit. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, dark bread, coffee and a dry finish with a generous cocoa and resinous bitterness. More than medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well made black IPA. Very nice.

jmgreenuk (6191) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle from the BierKoning, Amsterdam. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy tan head. The aroma is grassy hop and light roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a lovely smooth spicy pepper grass hop malt palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Perhaps the best beer I’ve had from ’t IJ.
