0.33 l bottle from ’Biermuda’ as ’Emelisse BIPA’, best before December 2017. Clear, very dark brown to black with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish, fruity-resiny and slightly roasty aroma of tropical fruits, pine and dark chocolate. Sweetish, roasty-malty, fruity-resiny and a bit soapy taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, tangerine, mango, orange and some pine, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter, slightly resiny finish. Medium to full body, creamy, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very tasty! Great, intense hop profile and really pleasant mouthfeel, well-balanced.

Black pour with firm lightbrown head. Aroma contains raosted malts, alcohol and sweet tones of chocolate. Taste: chocolate, liquorice, light to medium hop bitterness, light coffee. Bothe the sweetness/chocolate as the bitterness last in the aftertaste. Interesting beer. nutjes (952) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2016

jacobarts (208) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2016
Nose: sweet caramel barley malts. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: smooth-slick, fine CO2 mouthfeel, slightly watery
Mid-palate: immediate grassy bitter hops, (lvl-6-sweetness), coffee, roasty-toasty toffee barley malt,
Finish: lingering bitter hops, light chocolate, barley malt exhale
Summary: The attack is somewhat thin for an 8%’er but otherwise I very much liked the high quality smooth CO2 and prominent hop-roasted barley combo. I get a dark & green vibe from this one - rich yet still lush with vibrant hops. Great stuff.
Bottle. Black with tanned tiny head. Aroma of coffee and some citrus. Taste of coffee and some grapefruit bitterness, also notes of licorice. Antonio369 (206) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2016

Taste: milk chocolate, grassy hops, floral, roasted espresso beans, licorice, herbs, roasted nuts, vanilla, dark fruit, molasses, citrus. Very nice creamy mouthfeel. Medium to full body with a roasted bittersweet finish. Bitter hops & roasted malts...works so good together in this delicious brew! Stew41 (2025) - Phuket, THAILAND - SEP 18, 2016
Impressive. Thick and creamy and loaded with sweet chocolate and roast. Slutty beer and gee it’s attractive without being completely over the top. lbianchi66 (397) - FRANCE - SEP 18, 2016
Robe brune et opaque. Peu de mousse. Arômes fumé, café agrumes, résineux. Goût mangue, chocolat. Le café et le résineux restent en bouche. Très bonne black IPA.
R4N5H (1182) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2016
33cl bottle picked up at Jumbo supermarket Amsterdam and poured into a snifter on 09-Sep-2016. Black with a tan coloured head which settles down whilst drinking. Aroma of roasted malt, pine and citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Rich sweet roasted malt upfront, with bitterness of grapefruit, spices and a hint of cherry and coffee. Hoppy with a long bitter finish which numbs the back of the tongue. One of the best Black IPAs brewed in Holland that I’ve had to date.
