MelvinKalksma (1224) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, pine, roasted malts and hops.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with slight yeast and with a medium/large beige/brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and hops.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Damn that carbonation at the start, it is even more fizzy than soda; not my cup of tea. Thankfully this settles down a bit after a while. The flavour is great and more than making up for this however.

hackobock (3771) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2016
August 3, 2016. Bottle, best before December 2016.
Dark brown, almost black with a large dense tan head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and roasted with orange, peach, pine, resin, licorice and hints of cocoa. Taste is light to medium sweet, light fruity, light roasted bitterness. Finish is light sweet fruity and malty with hints of toffee, peach and sweet and light salty licorice, lingering slightly dry grassy, piney and roasted bitterness along with some resinous notes. Medium bodied, average carbonation.
Quite good, lacks some punch in the aroma.

rami_pl (2421) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Butelka, warka do 12/16. bardzo ciemne z bardzo wysoka acz niepiekna, ciut brazowawa piana. Aromaty bardzo intensywne, glownie zywicowo-iglakowe, do tego zboza jakies ewidentne, ciut - juz w tle kawowych jakichs i palonych klimatow. w ustach dosc wodniste wrazenie, ale nie przeszkadza za bardzo, bo intensywne smaki zgodne z aromatami, moze nawet ciut wiecej w smaku, owoce jakies sie pojawiaja leciutkie. goryczka nie wysoka ale raczej niezaprzyjemna i dluga. spore wysycenie. Sredniak.

Vinx (116) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2016
Aroma of tropical fruit, cirtus, pine, resin. Black with an excessive foam which is barely manageable. Bitter, medium body, lively carbonation, astringent finish. In a word: discordant.

jjsint (2576) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from Ales by Mail, drunk at home. Black with a petite and tight cream-coloured head. Salt liquorice, chocolate-covered cherries, plums, pine needles. Bittersweet taste with a more pronounced bitter finish. More pine and liquorice in the aftertaste. Thin to.medium body, soft carbonation. Excellent, excellent, excellent, at a wonderfully boozy ABV.

alteregoo (1146) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2016
Piwo jest przegazowane, olbrzymia piana wolno opada pozwalając na dolewkę piwa o ciemno brązowej barwie. Aromat intensywny, głwnie świerkowy, leśny, "zielony", gdzieś w tle odrobina kawy... W smaku rwnież dominuje żywica i iglaki, odrobina świeżych cytrusw, likierowe nutki a całości dopełnia niewielka ilość kawy i kakao. Goryczka średnia, żywiczno grejpfrutowa. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewający, jakiś miętwkowy aftertejs. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, agresywne, płpełne w odbiorze.
Całkiem niezłe, intensywnie nachmielone BIPA, niestety zbyt wysokie CO2 umniejsza walory smakowe.

Black IPA muy buena. Un aroma espectacular, dulce. La primera impresin es fresca, con gas y sabor, y al final deja un regusto al lpulo y un punto a regaliz.
