Fruktig och frisk. Jämn och balanserad. En IPA som är svart. Sen var det bra. med det. 7stern (647) - Bromma, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2013
Almost black, thick head. Pine aroma with some fruit. Taste of licorice and grapefruit. Bitter ar the end. Wurdahitah (22) - SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2013
Aggressive pour gives me a black beer with a beige two finger head. Aroma of pine and roasted malt with a fruity touch. Tastes as it smells. Smooth, bitter and a little dry. I like this beer. Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle. Almost black colour with a beige head. Fruity, spicy hops. Lightly roasted with notes of salmiak, licorice and coffee. Bitter, but still with some balance. Not my favorite style, but still good. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2013

olsvammel (7241) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very malty smell with chocolate and coffee, some hops in the background, pine and citrus I think. The malt is dominant in the taste as well, fairly bitter finnish mostly coffee bitter but also some from the hops. A malt dominant BIPA, like a hoppy stout. I prefer my BIPAs when they give more room to the hops, at least 50/50 but preferably that the hops is dominant and the dark malts are there to give it an extra dimension. This one isn’t doing that, but still a nice beer and definitely drinkable. gyllenbock (9313) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2013

Black with a tan head. Aroma and taste of hops, grape, licorice, dark chocolate and some berries. The finish was bitter. Balanced and nicely drinkable, a solid Black IPA.

Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2013
33cl bottle. Pitch black, small head. Lots of roasted malts and some subtle stable/hay tone in aroma. Sweet, yet beautifully balanced against distinct hops in flavor. Small body but long nice bittersweet after taste. Nicely done!
