Bottle. Pours a dark, almost black, brown with a khaki head. Good lacing. Sweetish and tart hop aroma with a weird off-note; sort of a blend between roasted, citrus, tart, milky and warm dumpster notes. Not really sure what to make of this. In any case it feels cloying. Tart, slightly smoked/roasted, apple flavour. Cooked vegetables and citrus as it warms. Bitter and tart finish with notes of fruit and citrus hops. Lingering apple notes. Slightly oily palate. Overall I think this had the potential to be good, but just comes off as a bit of a mess. 12.06.12. tsjerno (42) - BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2012

Black with beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and caitrus. Flavour with fruit and spiced. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
From a 0.33 L bottle. A low dense and creamy tan head, over an opaque black body. Smells nice! Yellow fruits, oranges, mildly roasted dark malts, and a gentle licorice tone. Supersmooth in the mouth. Full-bodied. Nice fruity-bitter flavor. A good mix of mild chocolate-accented malts and a light resinous hop bitterness with som fine fruit tones added. Top notch BIPA. thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012
Roasted coffee and big chocolate. Light sweet and medicinal, with big roasted and hoppy bitter. Good.

Flaske 0,25l. Gave fra Rune. Kullsort med et høyt, litt farget bobleskum som varer lenge. Fester seg litt til glasset. God fruktig aroma med litt sjokolade. Myk munnfølelse. 0 kullsyre. Smaken er først fruktig - litt appelsin - men den drukner raskt i en kraftig & fyldig bitterhet. Sjokolade i avslutningen. Habanero (4682) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Botled. Pours deep, dark brown with a nice off-white head. Nose of mild coffee, citrus, roasted malts and smoked notes. Sweet flavor with roast, citrus fruits, coffee, chocolate and ashy notes. Medium bodied, slick feel and soft carbonation. Ends up with a decent bitterness. A well brewed Black IPA. vipinvelp (4438) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2012
Black with slightly colored foam head, lacing to glass. Smells like burnt caramel, tastes nice bitter with some sweet caramel in background. Long dry bitter taste. (Bruinisse 201205) motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 8, 2012

Schiuma poco abbondante e di media persistenza. Aroma di malto torrefatto e caramello. In bocca l’amaro sovrasta le note morbide del malto, ne consegue una scarsa corrispondenza naso-bocca. Il corpo non riesce a supportare adeguatamente l’abbondante luppolatura.
