Bozo_skeleton (907) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 21, 2016
Noire, collet moyen persistant, belle dentelle. Aromes café, fruits mais un poil faible Une ouverture sur le cafe avec un coté moelleux et chaleureux, mais l’agressivité "toute relative" de l’amertume viens contrebalancer rapidement. Finale sèche sur des notes bien torrefiees

likeatrainwreck (391) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2016
Thick, black pour with a big Belgian style tan head. Sweet and sticky roasty malts upfront... Bit of a quadrupel thing going on too, with hints of the yeast and dried fruit. Piney, resinous hops and a decent bitter kick. Alcohol quite apparent. Interesting and tasty beer, if not slightly confused.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 AROMA: coffee, bread, toast, chocolate, hay, leather, APPEARANCE: brown, clear, frothy, tan foam, disappears quickly TASTE: medium to heavy bitterness, PALATE: full body, sticky, lively, astringent, bitter, long finish, OVERALL: very dark and complex belgian; good start. Too bitter towards the end and alcohol becomes very apparent.

maekchu (3249) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle. Dar roast nose, with light chocolate, some coffee, and spice. Dark translucent reddish/brown color, with a light tan head. Moderate chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark bread, some licorice, and piney hopping. Light but persistent bitter tracks in finish. Medium-heavy body, very pleasant mouthfeel. Nice stuff. Hides the alcohol fairly well.

szymonskc (364) - Skórcz, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Zapach średnio intensywny, czuć głównie palony słód, chmiel i karmel. Kolor ciemnobrązowy, zmętnione. Piana gęsta, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, dosyć trwała i ładnie zdobiąca szkło. W smaku bardzo słodkie, karmelowe, palony słód, kawa i chmiel. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, goryczka średnia, wysycenie niskie. Fajne piwo, chociaż dla mnie trochę za słodkie.

Kauge (1323) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle from Beer Express in Tallinn. Pours reddish brown with a lightish beige head. A Black IPA you say - get outta town. Exceptional lace. The aroma is sourish astringent fruity with a roasty - or more like toasty - undertone. A bit of booziness even lurking behind there. Later it starts to give off more proper BIPA notes like roast, coffee, chocolate... The flavour’s more roasty, with an almost ashy bitter finish. Quite a lot of herby, citric and dry bitterness. Lightish body, minimal carbonation. The alcohol remains pretty much hidden till the end, except for the active warmth in the throat. An interesting brew.

Delft 26-11-2015 Lekker donker bier. Hele volle, zachte smaak en drinkt echt enorm lekker weg. Je zou het niet zeggen maar bevat toch 9,2% alcohol. Enorm geschikt voor de wintermaanden. Smaakt naar geroosterd mout, licht naar chocolade en heeft een licht bittere nasmaak.
