UPDATED: NOV 18, 2015 Was fan of the old bipa from emelisse, have tried a couple different batches since Kees has left, and the quality of the brews is very pour... Aroma is oxydized hops, smelly feet, some roast, dough, DMS, herbal. Taste is also cheesy, not bitter enough. Very very dissapointing. I think the previous batch was more aromatic, but the beer was amber not black... Too bad, emelisse used to be top notch...

BoringBard (139) - NORWAY - FEB 28, 2013
Hints sweet burnt malt. Brownish black. Taste like a toned down ipa and not enough peated to justify making it black. Thin. Quite boring.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2013
Sweet smell of cookie dough and caramel malts. Taste is kind of meh, not really too much going on. Sweetness from the malts and bitterness from the hops. What else is new?

In bottle. Smells like cookie dough. Tastes like caramel/coffee/cookies. Quite hoppy and bitter in the end. The texture is very nice and the high alcohol level is barely noticeable. Great beer.

Kristall-Knig (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2013
Geruch Zitrone, hopfig, Kaffee, Bitterschokolade. Beginnt lieblich, slich, hopfig. mittelteil hopfig, zitronig, schokoladig-malzig, bitter. Klingt wrzigbitter und schokoladig aus, gleichwohl auch zitrusartig. Bittert angenehm nach. Sehr gut.

Beersiveknown (5110) - NORTHERN IRELAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle at home from the bottleshop
Opaque and black as night with a fluffy tan head. Cola, roast barley, licorice and blackcurrant on the nose. Fairly smooth body, lots of dark toasty barley and fair amount of bitterness but little in the way of hops. Touch of orange in the finish. Stout not BIPA but a tasty one

pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours near black with a fully lasting and medium lacing creamy beige head. Aroma is mild with roasted malt, hops,bitter chocolate, caramel, herbal, ash, resin, grapefruit. Taste is medium+ bitter and near medium sweet. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is medium. Finishes medium astringent roasted and quite hoppy. The hops doesnt really really come thought in the aroma, but are certainly there.

Gutifa (135) - Eisenharz, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2013
Black with a medium tanned head. Aroma is hoppy, fresh. Little bit like Hallertauer hops? In mouth its hoppy and bitter, but balanced.

Shaney (2423) - Kln / Cologne, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2013
Dunkelbraun, fast Schwarz, der Schaum ist schnell fort. Die vielen Schwebeteilchen und Hefebrocken sind nicht schn anzusehen. Aromatischer Hopfen trifft Rstmalzaromen, ungewhnlich, aber ok. Bitter-ser Geschmack, wirkt kantig und unausgewogen. Irgendwo zwischen Stout und IPA. Probierenswert, aber trifft nicht wirklich meinen Geschmack.

Y. (9) - Bornem, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2013 does not count
Aroma: When opening the bottle, I could smell the aroma from far away; nicely citrusy and the smell of burned malts. Lovely. Appearance: Jet black with a small white head; pretty, but not the prettiest Ive seen ;-) Taste: Hints of the nice hops, but a bit overwhelmed by burned malts. Also a nice bitter aftertaste. Still very tasty! Extra: Emelisse has this special extrabitter aftertaste... I also found this in their Imperial Stout; I like it, but I can imagine that some think its over the top.
