Light to medium sweet flavor with some earthy roast, burnt sugars, dried citrus, dirt, charred wood. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation.

Pours black color with a small head. Aroma is somewhat burnt and resinous, not that hoppy really, sweet caramel and some malts also. Flavor is somewhat chocolaty, resinous hops and sadly ..vegetables, oh how I hate thee.. almost liked the dry fruity palate but the veggies are too strong in this one. There are some faint licorice and dry ashy malt notes but it doesn’t save much. I would have liked to like this but I guess not.
Bottle as "Hopslinger Black Ipa", 5.7%. Dark brown with big beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, hops, citrus and grapefruit. Flavour is light roasted malts, fruit, hops, grapefruit, pine, little sweet, caramel and quite bitter.

Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Dark brown to black color, medium sized lightly creamy off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Smell just lightly malts and some hops, but that might be the result of a couple of days of extreme pollen allergy. Taste malts, hops, moderately bitter. I miss the roastyness. Maybe there’s a slight roasty touch in the finish, but I had hoped for more. DutchDrebus (5981) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014

#dark brown black with tan pillowy head collapsing to a lacing. Rich pine and redcurrants on nose, fairly bitter with roast barley and burnt toast notes, medium bodied and carbonation, long finish. Ok but not the greatest BIPA
