axl (868) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2015
330ml bottle, thanks ShivanDragon! Dark redish-brown with tall, thick beige head. Aroma of citrus, melon and resiny hops as well as butterscotch, toffee and some light roasted notes. Initially fresh and light bitter hop flavors, sweet melon and sweeter citrus fruits, followed by caramel, toffee and some roasted malts. The aftertaste is a lasting bitterness intermingled with roasted malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice beer feeling more like a full bodied and well balanced "regular" (D)IPA than anything else.

Op de eerste zomerse dag een pracht Black IPA. Smaak is licht kruidig, zelfs peperig, noten en hints van koffie en toffee. Aroma is zoeter van een bak vol fruit vermengd met een doos chocolade. In de mond aangenaam licht prikkelend en mooie structuur. Donker roodbruin met net niet witte kop. Nasmaak peperig en bitter, wat een pluspunt is op smaak.

huineman (690) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Colour is like coca-cola: dark brown with red shades. Aroma is like IPA and stout mixed: passion fruit, mango and rucola from the former; caramel, coffee and chocolate from the latter. Taste is bitter and creamy, with a sweet starting note. Very nice.

ok, disclaimer: I love it. dark bready down to earth taste combined with a whole lot of hops and a slight sweet malty aftertaste. genius.

corkyrory66 (1989) - BELGIUM - APR 25, 2015
Black ipa de 8 % abv, 17,2° plato et niveau ebu de 60. Couleur brun/noir, roux en transparence (ebc de 70). Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes assez vives. Mousse beige foncé épaisse et bien crémeuse, très belle texture. Arômes de melon, pamplemousse rose, houblon fleuri, malt grillé, pointe de chantilly, lait d’amandes. 1ère bouche soyeuse qui commence sur du malt brun, cara, et fruits tropicaux. Arrière-bouche nette, précise, à l’amertume nerveuse. 2ème sur un ensemble fruits/bois, avec quelques épices. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, nette, longueur, avec un zeste de citron. 3ème avec une grande finesse, équilibre parfait, superbes nuances. Arrière-bouche sans faille. Longueur qui ne faiblit jamais, donne de l’amertume en pagaille mais avec un goût pour la nuance et le subtile... Jambes bien marquées. Levure nette, précise, très belle ligne. Alcool tout à fait adéquat au genre, très bon travail. Finale aux mille détails dans l’amertume... CONCLUSION : très grande black ipa, parce que sans concession, efficace, nette, généreuse. Une bière qui ferait pâlir d’envie toute la west coast ...

veceo (1362) - Pula, CROATIA, - APR 13, 2015
Cloudy deep reddish brown color, average sized off white head that is uneven. Solid amount of lacing. Aroma is herby, piney, fruity. Taste is fruity, roasty and herby. Pretty strong bitter kick. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Pretty good, but this is not my style.

Werckmeister (3180) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 25, 2015
bottle at home as part of European Local Swap from RW80, thanks Robert. almost black color, big tan head. big coffee liqueurish smell, malty sweetness, some dried fruits, malt candy. full body, soft carbonation, nice mouthfeel, roasty taste, some subtle fruit notes, grapefruit, mulberry, some hidden sweetness, some pine notes, also herbal. good piney bitter / herbal also slight malty sweet finish. finish overall more bitter roasty. gets better on subsequent sips. ABV is well hidden. quite good, finish a bit too herbal for me to get a better rating.
