Mrkt brun, p grnsen till svart l med ett stort ljusbrunt skum. Doften r klassiskt svart IPA med bde citrus och mycket rostade toner. I smaken tar det rostade ver nstan helt.

Steven_B (105) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Pours a dark brown, almost black with a medium off white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is similar with hints of vanilla and a very slight saltiness. For 9.9% it is a very easy drink and one to savour every drop. Excellent!

DraftDodger (929) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2016
Copenhagen 29/5 2016. 33 cl bottle from Gunnar Madsen Vinhandel. Quite abstract label with flowery patterns reminding me of painting I would find at my Maternal Grandmothers apartment. Pours opaque black with creamy light beige head. Settles as thick creamy crown of foam with good lacing. Intense aroma. Sweet as caramel, brown sugar and vanilla. Bitter as coffee and dark chocolate. Fruity streak in this cornucopia as well. Soft carbonation and oily palate. Flavor is balanced between intense sweetness and quite pronounced bitterness. With the bitterness winning out. Quite bitter aftertaste staying with you. Quite overwhelming - in the very positive meaning of the word.

DwarfeD (2438) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Hazy (very) dark brown with a medium tan head. Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with subtle sweet tones. Coffee, dark chocolate, pine, spices and brown sugar. Good!

Szopeen (256) - Toru, POLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Przepięknie prezentujące się piwo, nieprzejrzyście czarne z fantastyczną czapą piany, ktra odmierza na szkle każdy łyk. W smaku mamy zarwno owoce tropikalne i cytrusowe, jak i nuty czekoladowe. W smaku jest rwnie przyjemnie, piwo mimo swoich parametrw jest niesamowicie pijalne, alkohol kompletnie niewyczuwalny.

Bov (11689) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 19, 2016
from Au Trappiste - pours a very dark brown beer under a creamy long lasting beige foam; nice lace; fairly roasted aroma of coffee, licorice, vanilla and black cherries; full-bodied, tasty and lively, solidly bitter, dry; long coffeish aftertaste with notes of ashes and licorice - great!

Raviq (72) - POLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Very dark brown or black colour, nice beige head and lacing. Aroma is a combination of strong hoppiness - mostly mango and grapefuit, intensive coffee and some dark malts. Beer is medium-dry, a little sour from dark malts and coffee and a little salty, I feel that the salt should increase sweetness but it doesnt seem that way. Biterness is medium and it has qualities of both hops and coffee. Alcohol is present, but not too agressive, nice and complex beer.

Foffern (1617) - Bod, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Has a black colour with a huge khaki creamy head. Roasted aroma with lots of coffee, ash, smoke, wood, dark chocolate and some grapefruit in the background. Rich taste with lots of roasted malt, coffee, ash, dark wood, very dark chocolate and grassy hops in the end. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, full-bodied and solid bitterness. A very tasteful and aromatic ale. Well roasted and quite bitter. Lot more stout than IPA in this.

Rune (10838) - Troms, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
330ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. A creamy, fawn-coloured head resting over a near-black coloured body. Crocheted lacing. Smoothly roasted malts on the nose, hints of coffee and molasses. Burnt dark malty flavours joined by moments of dark bread, salty liquorice, molasses and coffee. Roasted endnotes. Fine bodied. Lovely beer, had expected even more though (Troms 04.05.2016).

romanstep (147) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 4, 2016
W nosie kawa, paloność, likier kwawowy, w tle delikatna ziołowość i cytrusy. Czarne jak smoła, nieprzejrzyste, super zbita, beżowa piana. W smaku bardzo złożone, kawa, czekolada, karmel, paloność, cytrusy. Wyraźna strona słodowa, ale przez kontrę kwaskową od palonych słodw piwo nie jest zamulające. Goryczka spora palono- grejpfrutowa. Dużo ciała, olejiste, kremowe, wysycenie niskie, alkoholu prawie nie czuć. Klasa. Kran w KiK.
