Schwarz mit voluminöser Schaumbildung. Neben verhaltener Würze kommt ein sehr aromatisches Hopfenaroma hervor. Soweit so gut. Der Antrunk ist für ne Sekunde säuerlich-würzig, dann wird es rasant bitter und zwar Richtung Kohletablette, igitt! Enttäuschend auf ganzer Linie.

gyllenbock (9097) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle, bottled 2/2012. Almost black with a large tan head. Weak aroma with some hops, licorice and light roasted malt. Taste of mostly malt, also some licorice and light notes of hops. Drinkable but an old bottle with a light mouthfeel.

@Eddan: flaskan är nog lite trött men det fins tydliga drag mot en Black IPA. Svag humle och små lakritstoner. Eftersmaken ger mig en nötig känsla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines,shared with Steve.14th march.Black pour with large stable tan head.Hop,dark malt and pine aroma.On warming chocolate appears too.Flavours of dark malt,chocolate,coffee and citrus also coming through after a little warming.Easy drinking and quite tasty,better when not too chilled and warmed a little.

Idiosynkrasie (7421) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2013
650ml bottle. Black colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Intense hoppy aroma with a piney touch, chocolately dark malty background. Taste is initially bitter hoppy, later dark malty notes with a touch of coffee come into foreground, dry finish. Seperated hop and malt notes which at no point combine to a united, uniform taste.

Bomber from Fischman’s. Pours a foamy dark black with a root beer float head - naturally with foamy lacing. Quite opaque after settling. Aroma has dark patent malts, some chocolate and some citrus. Further through the glass there is more of a grassy hop/orange peel presence. Taste is of big roast flavor and sweet chocolate, with more subtle hoppiness. More a porter than a black ipa? Finishes sweetly bitter. 2/2012 bottle date may have killed more of the initial hop presence. A solid drinker with some taste.

Black brown pour with foamy light brown head. Notes of cola, root beer, coriander, cookie crust, smoke. Watery mouthfeel.

Thanks for sharing Sebastian! Pours a dark brown with orange highlights. Smell is dark roasted malt, mild licorice. Taste is roasted malt, spice, piney hops with a dry finish. Active carbonation...a bit too much and light body. Not too exciting but also not too bad.
