vincentvega72 (576) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2017 Zwart als de nacht. Compacte crmekleurige schuimkraag. Behoorlijk wat carbonatie. Rokerig aroma. Smaken van chocolade, rook, leer, toast, mout, koffie. Licht bitter-zoete afdronk. Zeer goed over heel de lijn. Misschien iets te veel koolzuur maar dat is dan ook het enige (kleine) minpuntje.

Grumbo (2294) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from www.slijterijhetfust.nl and split at the EU themed 2nd Ipswich bottle share. Pours almost black with a light tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, chocolate, fruit/berries and with alcohol quite prominent. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Body towards full, oily texture, soft carbonation. Alcohol remained a little too forward throughout though.

Zlotta (2772) - Hagen, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Gall & Gall (Zutphen), best before December 2016 (so probably almost two years old). Pitch black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, quite smoky, fruity and a bit roasty aroma of dark chocolate, peat, ash, dark ripe fruits and hints of iodine. Sweetish-malty, quite smoky, fruity and a bit roasty taste of dark chocolate, peat, ash, tar, some iodine and quite a bit of dark ripe fruits, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter, rather peaty-smoky finish. Medium body, minimally effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Good beer, quite complex and very intense, still very well-balanced.

Cantabrian (1079) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2016
This was a while ago, a bottle from a lovely bottle store in the city centre at Nijmegen. Great service there. I recall drinking a superb beer. Black as the name, with a shaggy russet heat, just like a fruit bat. Lovely aroma of peat, dark berries, cocoa, vanilla, repeating on the flavour, with a nice touch of salty liquorice. It was somewhat oily, but incredibly easy to drink. Much superior to its midnight/imperial sister.
