UnexpectedDetour (4) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2013 does not count
Bought this at the local shop and poured it into some glassware (chalice). Theres a thick, thick head that hugs the glass. Nice and foamy with a solid black body. You can see some sediment inside and theres a nice aroma of roasted bean. Consequently, the first taste is of charred coffee stout with an IPA hop finish. Its long-lasting and balanced with an aftertaste of malt and alcohol. Overall, this is the perfect marriage between a light Stout and IPA. A very, very good beer, surprisingly drinkable and smooth for 8%. Emelisse Brewery gets it correct.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
33cl bottle at Probus Wines, Dublin. Dark mahogany pour, thin tan head. Pine resin, chocolate and dark roast coffee in the aroma, some herbs too - not too potent in terms of hoppiness. Herbs and pine come through more in the taste, but the darker flavours dominate - plenty of dark roasted coffee, roasted malt, chocolate. Some light citrus in there, but it gets swallowed up quickly. Bitterness is on the herbal side - a little rough. Quite easy drinking for 8%. Not bad, but for the price theres a whole host of better BIPAs out there.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl . Brownish black with a dense beige head, good retention, nice lace. Hard roasted dark bready nose with notes of licorice and chocolate. Quite some herbal hoppiness too. Flavor of hard roast, bitter chocolate and coffee leading to a rather roasted and herbal hoppy bitter finish. Not fab, but better than any other offering from Emelisse, Ive had so far.

Holmen1 (5078) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
Flaske delt med Asle Bjrn og Sigmund: deilig mrk aroma med lakris, solbr og et hint av ryk (eller er det naboens grill?). Stor smaksfylde men allikevel srdeles lettdrikkellig, noe som antakelig skyldes den fine humlebalansen.

abemorsten (3591) - Mostery, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
330 ml shared bottle from Vika. Clear deep ruby with a light brown rim. Malty dark syrup, dates and raisins with wooden, light smokey notes on the nose. Full bodied, malty roasted raisins and raw liquorice. Smooth, with a lingering pleasant bitterness.

rodenbach99 (4318) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Bouteille de 33cl. Meilleure avant une coche quon ne voit pas. Bire brune fonce avec une belle tte de mousse brune crmeuse et durable. Premier nez houblonn avec des notes fruites en sourdine. De lalcool se pointe le nez. Un eu de chocolat en bouche, des notes grilles. La finale est quelque peu dsagrable avec des houblons amers (60 IBU bien compts) discordants. Correct.

Grzesiek79 (4089) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 4, 2013
Znakomite mocno palone ciemne jak smola IPA. O sporej i ukrytej mocy. Paloność goryczka wszystko to zdublowane. Bardzo wytrawny finisz i pozostawiajacy posmak slodu palonego i w oddali mocne nuty chmielne. Klasyk gatunku, piwo dla koneserow i raczej nie dla zlopiacych jasne, ujednolicone lagery. Polecam, szczegolnie dla twardzieli.

imdownthepub (13554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2013
Bottled, 330ml from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Deep brown with beige head. There is a dry bitterness from the off with this beer in amongst richly roasted chocolate malts. There is a powderiness to the mouthfeel with a thick palate. The flavour is liquorice along with a pineapple like fruitiness. Lasting and really very good.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 29, 2013
0,33l bottle from Srmanufaktra, Budapest. Clear, dakr brown colod with creamy light brown head. Hoppy flavour like resin, grass and herbs. Beside that chocolate, coffee and roasted malt also appears. Medium bitter taste. Creamy texture, medium body, light carbonation. Intensive dry and bitter finish. Very nice beer, when I image a Black IPA, I image a beer like this. Well balanced, bitter enough, esspecially in the aftertaste. These hops are good choises. This hoppy flavour goes well with roasted malty flavour.

SlovakSniper (5264) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
33 cl. Une bire brune qui montre certains sdiments. Une tte beige fonce qui fond rapidement. Un nez qui prsente des notes de pain rti, de caramel, de houblons terreux et de fruits qui ne sont pas seulement citriques. Un got marqu, si cela peut faire du sens, par une amertume presque thylique. Dans ces notes forces, une impression malte de chocolat noir. En bouche, un corps vraisemblablement huileux et passablement fort. Je souponne lavoine ou autre chose qui mchappe. Les bulles sont trs lasses et cela ne pose aucun problme. La finale est une longue litanie de notes amres, vertes et rsineuses. Une BIPA sans doute un peu trop lourde.
