Bottle 33cl. Black with brown head. Nose has hints of dried fruit, but also the typical stout tones. This is a teaser, some hoppy tones but combined with barley wine style. Not sure that it works. I expected an over the black IPA, but this did not materialize. Nothing wrong, but I just expected a different one. romanstep (791) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 9, 2017

330ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. A decent fawn-coloured head to a hazy dark brown body. Clingy lacing. Roasted dark malty aromas with a chocolate bite. Blended taste of dried fruits, coffee-chocolate and bread. Lingering roasted sweet and bitter finish. Ashy palate. Smooth with fine depth. Pleasant.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 dark smooth brown head. roasted malts . faint herbal. flavor is roasted malts and licorice. faint spicy. boozy notes. Benzai (17009) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle @ home. Opaque black color, medium to full sized quite creamy beige head that lasts for quite a long time and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, dark malts, some dark overripe fruits, a touch of some kind of herb or spice, maybe cardamom, somewhat liquorice-ish. Doesn't appear to be a mix between an IRS and an IIPA imo. In any case it's weird, there's dark malts and there's hops, but it's weird. Gets better after a while though. Didn't like it in the beginning but it definitely got better after a while. Basically up from around 3.2 to 3.8. Not bad. MiP (16143) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2017

Bottle, 10%. Good fruity and roasted aroma. Black colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is sweet and fruity. Quite roasted. Sweet but well-balanced. Good body.
