janubio (761) - SPAIN - SEP 25, 2015
Dark brown colour, with a brown head that does not last. Almost no lace. Is it me, or it smells as indian ink?, Well, first impression passes, theres resine, dark fruits and caramel. Too much carbonation. Taste of resines, caramel and dark fruits. Not my favourite Emmelisse.

MarkoNm (2519) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours almost completely black and covered by a large and long lasting beige head. Amazing tropical fruits aroma, lots if sweet fruits. Some very gentle roasty aroma later on. Muld chocolate in the taste at first, fruity presence wirh very fine and lingering hoppy bitterness. Delicious.

Mooi donker bier met een mooie caramelkleurige schuimkraag. Perfecte bittere nasmaak die niet te sterk is maar lekker lang blijft hangen. Neigt wat naar caramel en drinkt lekker makkelijk weg.

ineedbeer (1976) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Poured from a bottle courtesy of my Summer Secret Santa. Aroma is moderately malty with a lot of toasted bread and cracker with lighter caramel and toffee. Some medium light raisin notes. Moderately strong hop aromas with a lot of grapefruit and woodsy, resin notes. A hint of alcohol. Pours a murky, dark brown with a touch of a red hue and a medium large, thick, dark tan head. Moderate lacing with medium length legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a bit more sweetness mid palate. Moderate toasted bread and cracker malt notes with lighter caramel and raisin. Medium high to high bitterness with a bit of alcohol spice. Moderate hop notes, mostly woody but also some light grapefruit and pine resin. A bit of a floral character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent IPA though I dont think it is really a black IPA so much as a brown one. Hops are very European, but I think that works with the darker malt notes.

hrabren (1056) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 10, 2015
0.33 bottle from Pivoljub, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Pitch black with ruby tint, strong beige head, leaving lacing. Blueberry yoghurt, tobacco, roast and soy sauce. Predominantly fruity, roasty background. Strong bitter kick, heavily hopped, develops a malty and roasty taste, quite sweet, with an aromatic finish. Heavy and serious. No joke, great IBLA.

klm1 (1142) - - JUL 9, 2015
Pours black opaque colour with tiny creamy light brown head, which quickly disappeared. Visually soft carbonation. Aroma wthout trace of an alcohol. Prevails malty notes of caramel, coffee, cacao. Also are evident hop esters: dark fruits, plums, strawberry etc. Flavour: Alchol note is noticable, but it is not too strong. Hop note esters of raisins, little grape, lemon, grapefruit, plums, you can also detect some herbal - floral notes of menthol, sage...Hop notes are so strong, that you hardly detect some malt note: but still you can detect malt sweetness of caramel, cacao and barley malt. Malt swetness is medium, hop bitterness is very high. Finish is long lasting bitter and dry.
