Kauge (1451) - 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.

Patdelichte (206) - - NOV 26, 2015
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.

Koelschtrinker (16330) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 25, 2015
Röstig süßlicher, deutlich hopfiger Antrunk. Steigender Hopfen, wenig alkoholisch. Würzig hopfig röstig bleibend, süßlich, dann steigend alkoholisch. Eher trockenes Finish. 11/11/12/12/8/11

Holmen2 (2715) - NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 15.11.15. Ebony. Pale brown head and lacing. Aroma and taste of dark malt, roasted barley, chocolate, pine, dark syrup and tobacco. Quite dry. Scaringly high drinkability.

Holmen1 (4624) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
Flaske, delt med Ovesen mens vřrteren kjřlner: brunsvart med tett beige skum som varer. Nydelig aroma av brente mandler, rosiner, mřrk dessertsjokolade og fuktig granskog. Fyldig, cremet munnfylde og smak med de samme elementer. Nydelig. Overraskende lett ĺ helle over drřvelen - her gjelder det ĺ vćre forsiktig!

jamaty (1771) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2015
Marrón oscura, opaca, abundante espuma cremosa beige. Buen aspecto. Aroma no muy intenso pero complejo. Tostado, licor, chocolate, anís. En boca, buen cuerpo, potente, alcohol bien presente sin exagerar. Tono seco y algo ahumada. Sabor rico, y complejo también. Café, vainilla, chocolate, algo de fruta roja. Amargor potente. Final rico, bien amargo y calórico. Tal vez más cercana a una imperial stout.

zacgillbanks (4162) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy dark brown-black in colour with liquorice, aniseed, chocolate, star anise and pear flavours followed by rich red fruit, currants and slight vanilla and oak on the sweet finish. Superb!

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2015
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are herbs, roasted malt, and caramel - with a roasted finish.

@ Kulminator 15-10-31: Ingen större doft, men en trevlig dunker med fina humliga toner och smĺ oljiga undertoner. Ganska ok.

rekvium (397) - Odense C, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2015
From tap. Pours hazy dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of crystal malts, roasted, stale hops, grass, resin. Taste is liqourice, coffee, stale hops, resin. This is just wrong...
