Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, old hops, dark malts, wet leafs, soil, grass, citrus peel, alcohol. Taste is slightly harsh, dark malts, old hops, wet leafs, pine needles, soil, grass, citrus peel. Longlasting bitterness, a little thin body. Fair enough, has probably faded a lot.
Bottle 33cl, from Henrik thanks. A dark beer with medium brownish head. Nose is on exotic fruit. Aroma is fruity, resinous, grassy, pineapple, licorice, mint, dark chocolate with intense bitterness at the finish and roasted notes. Pyrmir (6154) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2013
On tap, rated from backlog. Aroma of licorice and dark chocolate with hop notes balancing those malts up real good. Flavor is roasted and fruity, nice. kappldav123 (6122) - GERMANY - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle looks interesting. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Dry-hoppy aroma. Starts the same, dry and hoppy. Modest bitter. Some fruity hints. Finish more and more stout-like, less dry, intense malty. Quite drinkable. Nice!

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a small light beige head. Nose is mild grass, licorice, pine and hints of cocoa, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate, pine, spruce, cocoa and hints of grains and coffee. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty decent, although I think this might be a bit too old. visionthing (5464) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2012
33cl bottle from Kihoskh. Pours very dark, almost black with a nice beige head. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit, some tropical fruits and also roasted malt and hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Hops dominate at first but the darker aromas presents themselves after a while. Alcohol is well integrated. Surprisingly light body. Light to medium sweet with medium bitterness. Hoppy, bitter finish with hints of alcohol and roasted malt. Quite nice and surprisingly easy to drink. Nice BIPA! charlotte (5396) - rødovre, DENMARK - APR 7, 2012

10-MAR-2012, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken".
Pours very dark brown, almost black with huge beige head that lasts and coats the glass.
Very hoppy nose. Grape fruit and pine. OK, some roasted notes as well, but hops dominate.
Same with the taste but the roasted malts are more evident, thougt. A touch of coffee and chocolate combined with the very strong hop profile.
Fantastic brew. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2012
No I have not. Bottle from the Kioskh of all Kioskhs. Big foamy light choco colored head. Body is dark brown with limited clarity. Grassy and light fruity hop nose, offset by some dryish powdery cocoa malt notes. Niclely roasted dark malt flavor profile. Tarry notes and hint of bitter coffee. A bold bitterness underneath. Fruity, resiny with some fine floral tones. Almost full. Nice juicy texture. Finishes just as roasty and fruity-bitter as I hoped. Now I’ve been Køssed!
