harrisoni (16704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle at London Drinker BF 2016. Black beer lasting tan head. Dark chocolate aroma like 60%cocoa chocolate. Dry in the mouth. Dry on finish. Definitely hopped gives a little lime on the finish but not a black ipa. You know what it’s not as thick and dense as an impy stout but I kinda like it dark chocolate and lime hop but proper bitter hop I rather liked it .too fizzy but fun and likeable and fresh tasting. Put a smile upon my face

langeveld12 (401) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2016
Looks like a porter, tastes like... I'm not really sure what to call it. There are hints of roasted malts and caramel but it's mostly hoppy, fresh and fruity like a ale ale or maybe a saison. Medium bodied. Crazy but good nevertheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really nice yeasty, liquorice, sourish and malty aroma. Nice black colour and carb. Off white head. Sourish, wooden flavours at start, then roasted malts and vanilla kicks in after that. At the end grassy and haylike hops kick in. A tiny bit watery... Really nice! Hoppy, sour and malty aftertaste. Yeah!

mariuspoenari (1073) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2016
33cl bottle. Jet black pour with a bit of beige head that gives way to a sticky lacing. Smells of roasted malts, caramel and cherries. More sweet that I expected, with notes of artificial flavouring, vanilla and dark cherries. Watery.
