Fashawn (369) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Meravigliosa black Ipa sfornata da to ol, capace di avvolgere del tutto il palato dalla.presenza del mango iniziale, al.passaggio a caffe e cioccolata al latte, prima del finale agli aghi di pino e resina. Meravifliosa creatura.

CraftBeerNick (1169) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle at home in garden, 11th April 15. Pours a neat black beer with a nice looking white head. Aroma is coffee, burnt malts, bitter hops. Taste is quality coffee, lingering bitter hops, cocoa, dark chocolate, grapefruit. Great.

Saeglopur (813) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 6, 2015
330 ml bottle from Ammersin Centerstore, Brunn am Gebirge.
Pitch black body, with a beautiful, big, stable, dense, creamy, coffee colored head.
Aroma with a lot of coffee, cocoa powder, liquorice, salt, some hops.
Tastes of wonderful, dry, but smooth coffee, cocoa, bitter chocolate, liquorice, citric hops.
Full, creamy, oily mouthfeel, with a good carbonation.
In the finish a lot of salt finally, alcohol warmth, roasty-dry coffee, dry cocoa, liquorice, subtle zesty hops.

Delicious! Clearly the best Black IPA I’ve had so far, while this is much more an Imperial Stout than others. The hops are just in the background for balancing purposes and this is indeed perfectly balanced. Coffee everywhere, but still smoothly embedded.

Dark colour with little brown head. The reason for small head is presence of coffee. Hoppy beer, with the dark chocolate and lots of coffee. Excellent and complex beer.

ElDesmadre (2129) - Mikołów, POLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Very hoppy beer, with the resin dominating the dark chocolate and coffee. Light salty indeed, with notes of licorice and a spicy finish. Excellent.

flemmingwillum (1079) - Nysted, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2015
Rating #1060, flaske fra Khioskh. Helt sort med godt skum. Lækker aroma med masser af hårdtristet malt, kaffe og citrus samt andet humlelækkerhed. Også en lækker smag af hårdtristet malt og kaffe, samt en velplaceret citrushumle til at opveje det. Solid bitterhed. Dog virker øllen stadig lidt brutal og med en anelse for meget gennemtrængende alkoholsmag til øltypen og mine smagsløg i det hele taget. En smule ubalanceret. Teksturen virker også en smule tynd i forhold til hvad jeg havde forventet, og heller ikke så blød som det bedst ville klæde øllen. Lidt mere cremethed, tak! Alt i alt dog en super lækker øl, som jeg godt kunne finde på at købe igen.
