kermis (11611) - The Hague / Amsterdam, - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle shared at Deans sticky table tasting. Pours hazy brown with no head. Aroma is really boozy, raisins, alcohol, like a bad gin, nothing like a black ipa! Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet. Thick burning mouthfeel. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. Pretty bad.

Bottled, thanks fiulijn! Viscous, near black, no head. Aroma of calvados and licorice. Sweet and massive bodied with thick, oily mouthfeel. Molasses, licorice whiskey and white pepper. Really boozy finish.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2013
Poured a headless reddish brown. Aroma of overwhelming alcohol soaked berries. Full body flavour is as the aroma, a bit of a buttery toffee note. Not balanced. Certainly not an IPA or black.

jmgreenuk (8014) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle at the Deansos monthly RB tasting, July 2013. Poured a clear chesnut brown with no head and no carbonation at all. The aroma is pure rich alcohol. This is not black and its no IPA. Its more like a regular cognac to be honest. This really is 24% or more. Its not a beer IMO and hard to rate. Interesting to taste in very small quantities. I could not drink a whole bottle!

Zer0 (1207) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 Bottle. Clear red with no head. Smells cognac-ish, so much alcohol. Not a black ipa. Eisbock-barley wine is more like it. Very medicinal. Too much alcohol. Taste is burning my throat. Really bad.

Bottle ? ml
Aroma bold with plenty of sweet mats. Leafy grassy hops fail in balancing nose. Plenty of alcohol heat.
Appearance
Top: off white small top. lasting.
Base: clear, black with garnet hue.
Palate : hefty ale with creamy heavy body. Lower carbonation. Warming heat.
Taste: as in aroma, heavy bold with slight medicinal notes.
Other notes: raw hefty behemoth. Overpowering. Must be shared with others.

Marheb (5164) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Mondial de la bire 2013: Beaucoup de dethanol tranchant si je compare aux autres liquide de mme envergure. Malts foncs et houblons tentent de survivre malgr tout.
