SaintMatty (5855) - 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.

Wow, what an amazing beer. Delicious taste of smoothly roasted malt, coffee, grass, soft fruitiness and a nice countering bitterness. Really good.

Grey brown beer opaque, weak head nice carbonation. Hoppy smell, grapefruit, resin and flowery. Subtle fruitiness, caramel. Light tones of chocolate. Bitter sour with a delicious watery oily finish. Coffee bitterness, chocolate and hoppy resin, peels. Long taste development, fruity without sweeteness.

wvhoran (393) - Tasmania, - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a creamy tan had. The aroma has distinct hop notes of grapefruit and lemon, as well as more peach and mango notes. The flavour is hoppy with peach and grapefruit, as well as a nice roast malt character. Good bitterness, slightly creamy. Very good.

caesar (5764) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2014
Bottled from de Molen Beershop mentioning the use of Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial, bottled 05.02.14 BB 05.08.14, large sample, served in a TeKu. Dark brown color, medium light brown head. Aroma is quite hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, blackcurrant, roasted malts, slight candy, bit grassy, slight coffee. Quite bitter in taste, some chewy roast as well. Great balanced black IPA, which goes more towards IPA but with the necessary touch of roast. Lovely stuff.
