Eructoblaster (4371) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2017
Bottle - 330ml. Very dark brown body with ruby glints and a huge, beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and spicy hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste carries grainy and some leather/earthy notes. Ends with a fair bitter/roasty finish. Not bad.

pours hazy medium dark brown pour with a towering bubbly beige head offering good retention and lacing, feeling rather abnormal. burnt spicy citrus, earthy and piney bitters as well, carbonic acid and soap, brown sugar solids, sweet licorice, other spices, metal, no apparent yeast if not its extra co2; salt. foamy carbonation, light body, semi-sweet yet assertive spicy-piney finish. obnoxious gaz in this seemingly (originally, i suppose) decent croatian black ipa interpretation.

Ungstrup (38414) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2017
Bottled. An amber beer with a huge yellowish head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel, bread, and fruits, leading to a bitter finish.

Borup (15350) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2017
33 cl. bottle. A dark brown coloured beer with with an off-white head. Aroma and flavour of yeast, spice, fruit, brettanomyces and bitterness.

Desverger (12941) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2017
[email protected] - black pour with beige head. Sweet and roasted malty with notes of liquirice and cocoa, cocoa, caramel, sweet malty backing, hoppy and roasted bitter close.

yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2017
33 cl bottle. Pours hazy deep amber, huge brown head. Aroma is bretty and dark malty. Bretty, fruity and toasted malty. Dry, bitter and bretty. Lingering fruity. Mellow fruity and bretty far finish.

aussiealchemist (59) - Berwick Victoria, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2017
330 ml bottle in "Glam". A bar in Dubrovnik. Pours pitch black with large white head that lasts. Nose is citrus with slight grass. Very little burnt toffee or anything from the roster malt. Taste is licorice, burnt caramel but mainly hop citrus. Solid bitterness that carries through to the back palate. Great example of the Cascadian Dark Ale style. Lovely beer.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2017
My Bottom Line:
This perfumy, almost soapy Black IPA shares pine needles through a nutty, earthy base.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the hazy dark brown.
-Mouthfeel is a tad too effervescent for what I like in the style.
-Caramelized sweetness seems adorned with mushroom-like earthiness.
-Drinkability is reduced by the high carbonation and intense profile.

Bouteille. Robe foncée sans être noire. Même en absence de soleil, une certaine lumière perce le liquide et je parviens à distinguer mes doigts de l’autre côté du verre. Bien entendu, le liquide est parfaitement filtré et très mousseux, d’une bulle moyenne et beige. Un look de Cola. Arômes bien torréfiées de grains noircis et de houblons verts. Je suis étonné qu’une bière provenant d’Europe de l’Est, qui a mis autant de temps à parvenir jusqu’ici, offre des houblons si bien définis. Des chardons, du pissenlit, un alcool blanc. En bouche l’attaque est verte et feuillue. Très aromatique, l’amertume ne s’installe qu’en toute fin de la première gorgée - une fois le liquide avalé. Par contre, une fois installée, elle y reste! Texture trop mince à mon goût, très sèche, bulle énergique, saveurs de pin, de sève d’épinette, et de plante asiatique qu’on retrouve dans les boissons douces du quartier chinois. Interminable amertume. Une fois suffit.
