C’est ma version d’une porter avec un houblonnage renforcé: 50 IBU pour « seulement » 5,2-5,5 % d’alcool. Elle contient pratiquement la teneur en houblon d’une IPA, mais sa couleur brun-noir provient des malts rôtis. Je la brasse une ou deux fois par an.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle@Home. Funk aroma but in a good way. Brown, beige head, good lace. Sweetish, malty, bitter, funky, chocolate, harsh bitter finish. Too much going on, unbalanced.

MiP (15264) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle, 6%. Fruity and farty aroma., hint of refreshing hop. Hazy brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is rather bitter to begin with. Then comes a fruity note, and surprisingly a sort of bacterial acidity. A clean acidity, though.

Bamsen78 (5023) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you! Pours clear darkish amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with fruity notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of citrus and a touch of grass. Mildly bitter finish. Rather unbalanced but definitely enjoyable.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2013
Pours a hazy brown with at least 2 inches of pillowy beige head with big clumps of lace on the glass. Aroma is bread, toffee, light citrus and nuts. Aroma overall is a bit weak. Flavour is roasted malts, cocoa, mild-medium bitterness, earthy, fruity, grapes and lingering dry/bitter finish. Doesn’t really fit as black ipa but maybe it doesn’t quite fit in the given categories. Overall it’s a bit unbalanced.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown with golden highlights and a ridiculously massive head that requires multiple installments to pour, then vanishes leaving a few patches of spotty lace. Aroma is chestnuts and bread, light hops. Flavour is mellow nutty malts, light plastic, moderate bitterness. Do not see how this is a black IPA. It’s actually a mess.

hopdog (11459) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a smaller sized off white head. Earthy, floral, roasty, chocolate, with a coffee bitter finish.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle, traded with Allen. It tastes like the brewer was afraid of overhopping and committed the mistake of not hopping it enough. Roasted and chocolate notes mainly, against the background of some apricot, citrusy and piney hoppiness. There are also some interesting cherry notes. Rather dry body, while the malty flavour relegates the hoppiness almost into nonexistence, save for the moderately strong, citrusy and piney bitterness. Nice, creamy carbonation but flavourwise it is a bit empty. Like a pepped up version of a dull porter that’s become significantly less dull as a result, yet is still lacking.
