BlackHaddock (4012) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
33cl Bottle: BBD 25th Apr 2016. Drank on 30th Jan 2014 in ’t Brugs Beertje. Pours almost a true black, but it’s really dark, dark brown with a deep red hue: lightly tanned head. Burnt malts rule the nose, they also take over the taste but not as much as in the aroma. In the mouth dark fruit flavours within a chocolate bar and a bittering hop undertone stop the beer becoming one dimensional and help to hide the 9.2% ABV which is always hanging around in the background. Different and most enjoyable.

Palme (3474) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2014
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A deep dark ruby brown colored one with a big kinda beige looking head with great retention. Not too extreme on the nose, but I get tones of grounded coffee beans, cardboard, Nutella and soft chocolate traces. It’s sweet, but actually balanced. For me this tastes like an imperial brown ale, and I really enjoy imperial brown ales! Gentle oily in the mouth and the carbonation level is just above average. Lots of nice dark flavors here. Nutty dark with sweet chocolate and lactose. It gets better and better when gaining temperature. I’m not kind when saying this but it’s surprisingly enjoyable this! 23.10.2013

MichaelAwesome (4438) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2014
A dark and classic IPA without any big surprise. Tough in the alcohol with a mixture of hops and coffee. Strong, deep bodied - good one.

McTapps (4440) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks, Christos! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of ripe hops and dark grains. Taste of fresh hops, dark bread, light malt, torf, citrus, spices, herbs and light caramel. Medium-dry finish with some nice bitter hints. Nice beer.

Aromes et gout de houblon, persistant en bouche. Café, amertume. Bonne balance et complexité intéressante.

rikstar (873) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Van de tap in antwerpen bij de witte arend, donker bruin als koffie. Geur chocolade, vanille en aromahop trekkend mondgevoel, espresso beetje hout achtig.

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2014
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.
