Dark almost opaque color, small brown head. Toasted and piney aroma. Medium-bodied. Piney hoppy flavor, coffee-coffee beans roastyness too. Piney bitterness in the finish. Balanced CDA.
Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of mint chocolate chip, burnt black malt, pine wood and pine cones. Harshly dry pine cones cut at the back of the palate. Burnt dry chocolate malt follows. Medium body. The only offering from them I didn’t like too much so far. Benzai (16681) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2013 650ml bottle thanks to Joes. Opaque pitch black color, full sized light brown head that lasts for quite a long time. Smell and taste malts, hops, slightly some fruits and moderately bitter. Fizzy carbonation, ok body. Overall a bit disappointing and too highly carbonated.

Bottle @ Too many Geuze’s - only one toilet , Ulfborg 2012. Pours dark brown with a small creamy head and lacings. Citrus, grapefuit, caramel, vague roast and an ashy touch. Dry and bitter roasted and hoppy end. The hops are kept in the back and not as shiny as I wish them to be in a "black Ipa". Medium bodied. Good. bhensonb (15745) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle from Liz. Pours black with a 3.5 finger creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and resin. Med body. Flavor is roasty dark malt with some light pine. There might be some zest in here. There is certainly a lot of intense flavor. So it’s complex of course! djd07 (15543) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bomber. Pours a very dark brown with a medium creamy beige head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is a smokey malt and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel with a bitter hop and spicy dry finish. A good black IPA from Clown Shoes.
