Not black so much as very dark brown, with caramel highlights. Dank resinous hop nose like the fridge at a homebrew shop, with some sweet dark-caramel malts and notes of anise, herb and espresso. Both bitter and sweet taste with flavors of dark sugar, espresso and herbal hop-bitterness. Avoids the fruit of both American IPAs and some Belgian yeasts, going for roast and spicy-herbal hopping; has loads of character yet still winds up a bit muddled. From a large bottle shared at the Metafoor café in Leuven.

Iznogud (1448) - CROATIA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from MBR, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with beige head. Roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, dried fruits, light to moderate hoppy bitter finish. Had an acidic note which I don’t think should be there - could be bad bottle.

Japalo (1419) - DENMARK - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle@home. Dark brown. Huge foam. Roasted coffee piney notes. Very dry with medium bitterness. Fine blend between the black malts and the piney herbal hops.

Hoppy_Luke (626) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Mocne black IPA o ciemnobrunatnym kolorze i obfitej, beżowej pianie, która pięknie oblepiała szkło. W aromacie przyjemna paloność, gorzka czekolada i nuty kawy. W smaku rewelacja - paloność i czekolada, w głębi cytrusy i kawa. Do tego rozgrzewa przełyk i nie daje poczuć tak dużej zawartości alkoholu. Naprawdę rewelacyjne piwo!

visionthing (3526) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2015
33cl bottle from some bottle shop in Belgia. Pours slightly hazy dark brow with a rather modest light beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with licorice, notes of coffee and lots of hops with pine being the most dominating, some fruitiness present too. Medium sweet with a nice mixture of roasty and hoppy flavours and a decent, but balanced bitterness. Medium to full body with carbonation slightly on the lively side. Tasty and dangerously drinkable.

Very dark brown colour. Not imperial stout-black. Some roasty aroma’s. Mild coffee. Fresh hops. Not a very strong aroma. Taste: much more hop forward than the aroma initiates. Again mild coffee and roastyness. Little, little bit of sweetness and herbal notes. Long lasting bitter finish.
