Dark brown body, nice tan head. Rich mix if chocolate and pecan with pine and spruce hops. Smooth body with just enough carbonation. Solid amount of bitterness without being so overpowering. Great brew. (50cl bottle)

DutchDrebus (5800) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle thx to benzai @ home. Pitch black, opaque colour with a small off-white head, but its quite cold. Smells hops, grapefruit, roasty, some dark chocolate. Great combination between ipa and stout. Tastes quite hoppy, dark chocolate, roasty, fruity, very fresh and refreshing, lovely. Full body, low carbo.

On tap at the BeerTemple. Dark black pour with lacy tan head. Aroma is chocolaty, roasty, nice piney hop, light licorice. Taste is bitter, roasty and piney, lingering dark chocolate flavor. Palate is medium bodied with light-med carbonation. Nice.

mkel07 (5679) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle from Stewarts Wine Company. Deep black colour with a tan head. Quite malty with a solid dose of hops. Not bad and hides the alcohol well.

ClubGonzo (5646) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is pine, spruce, freshlty cut grass, hints of chocolate, peaches and cold coffee. Taste is pine, coffee, resin, grass, hints of peaches, herbs and licorice. Medium body and carbonation. A very well executed BIPA with a flavorful, hoppy profile while still having a bit to offer on the malty side.

TimE (5608) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2015
Very dark brown color with light brown head. Very hoppy nose with tons of citrus notes under pinned by roasted malts. Medium full body, tons of cotton candy, citrus notes with excellent roasted malt character. Sharp malt and hop character. Lingering roasted malt finish. Excellent example of the style, but doesnt make top three for me.

Gurthnar (5581) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Aroma plum, chocolate. Light roast. Moderate herbal grassy hops. Dark brown colour. Taste is very nicely balanced, with bold amount of chocolate and roast complementing the grassy herbal hoppiness. Nicely balanced. Very good.

Fra flaske p Cardinaltreff sep-13: definitivt friskere og mer sympatisk enn Hardknott Code Black (ogs en svart bleking). Syrlig og litt medisinal, men allikevel god medisin. Interessant blanding av sdme, syrlighet og mrk bitterhet. God fylde, men stilarten (som sprklig er en selvmotsigelse, a contradiction of terms ville en engelskmann sagt) er forelpig ingen favoritt hos meg.
