abergdahl (43) - SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014
Not crazy about this one, a bit stale, uninspiring color, vary nice aroma with lots of hops and a OK taste.

ansalon (1391) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014
Pours black with a fairly airy frothy tan head. Aromas of peach, grapefruit, roasted malts, apricot, kiwi. Taste is peach, roasted malts, grapefruit, slight nutty notes, apricot. Body is quite thin with moderate carbonation. Very well balanced and drinkable. Does absolutely not make a fuss but makes its presence known nonetheless. Good stuff!

Ktwse (2002) - SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014
Pours dark brown to black with low, light tan head. Aroma of citrus, coffee, grapefruit, pine and light chocolate. Taste is medium bitter, espresso and citrus, followed by lightly fruit sweet, then a long bitter finish. Body is light and smooth with soft to average carbonation.

larsniclas (5613) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014

Saeglopur (330) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk. Very dark brown to black body, with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma of citrus, berries, peach, some tropical fruits, nuts, chocolate, roast. Taste with about the same fruit notes, coffee, chocolate, roast, some wood. Mouthfeel is pretty full, creamy, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, roasty and citric. Great Black IPA! Perfect balance, the fruity hops and roasty malts are equally present. Also with a pleasantly creamy mouthfeel, that still doesn’t harm the drinkability.

wihlan (258) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget - doftar lite försiktigt av humle och hembryggd öl. Mörk som en Stout med nästintill vitt skum. Tydlig smak av humle och lite brända toner från den rostade malten, finns även en viss kryddighet i smaken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VsXsV (2273) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon peel, coffee, light dill, mango and ash. Taste is very light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of coffee, lemon peel, light ash and citrus. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty good.

SaintMatty (5257) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2014
330ml Bottle (6.7%) - Very dark brown in colour. Orange, liquorice, toffee and pine in the aroma. Liquorice, soapy hops, chocolate, roasted malt and some slightly earthy notes feature in the taste. Not bad, but far from the usual high standards from this brewery.

finol (2167) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle at 6.7% from Systembolaget. Fruity hoppy, lots of oranges, balanced body with some licorice.
