Bottle from bierkoning. Nice black pour, with dense and persistent off white foam. Aroma is hoppy, malty, chocolate, belgian roasted malt, quite fruity hops (pineapple). Taste is roasty, light ash, sweet with good hop bite in the finish. Palate is full bodied, med-strong carbonation. Good.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby reddish black with a resilient black head. Aroma is chocolate, brown sugar and herbs. Flavor is hoppy, coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Finish is herbal, dark coffee, very strong bitterness. Medium to thick body, velvety mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Good one!

Bontus (634) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark brown to black. Bit hazy. Shiny beige head. Definitely a "C-hop" nose, wrong westcoast? Grapefruit, but also EU hop character with more herbal aroma’s. Faintly roasted. Round balanced body, mostly bitter, slick palate. Excellent if they pulled this off with only Belgian hop. They could easily transform this recipe into one of the best all Belgian IPA’s. As a black IPA I like De La Senne’s atempt a bit more.

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Dikke vettige kraag op donkerbruin-zwart. Aroma van natte grond, espresso, drop en verse sinaasappelsap. Smaak heeft veel zoete en bittere tonen, met dito nasmaak, van chocolade, koffie en citrus. Veel bezinksel. #2 july-2014 smaak is aarde/planten-achtig met inkomende bittere elementen, aardig complex. Smaak +1, aroma als eerder.

DutchMark (170) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2014
I am not a fan of too strong burned malt or smoke flavors. This one is very good. There is burned smokiness but it is wel balanced. It has some chocolate notes and finishes with a long dry hoppy bitter taste. Nice!

timmwillum (71) - BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Super dark IPA, which is not really IPA-style. Dark coulor with thick tainted head that is rather drifty. Nose is quite hoppy. Taste is caramel and faint chocolate and anis. Bitter and hoppy taste, but not quite enough for a standard IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
