Keg at Mother Kelly’s SE1, London in Jan 2018 - Opaque black in colour. Good creamy beige head. Excellent lacing. Malty; roasty malts, bit burnt, roast coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice notes, caramel. Fruity; citrus, grapefruit, orange. Hoppy; decent hop bitterness, piney hops. Good balance (for a BIPA). Bitter roast malty and citrus fruity piney hoppy throughout. Liked this. Not too OTT. Very decent BIPA. (2018-01)

Niby fajna żywica, ale piwo męczy, goryczka zalega, no tak średnio bym powiedział

nephirem (684) - CROATIA - JAN 25, 2018
Bottle, 0.33l. Thick black pour, one finger frothy beige head. Nice nose, roasted malts, coffee, grassy hops. Slight citrus. Thin to medium body, medium carbonation. Light texture, slight thickness. Roasty bittersweet taste. Rich aroma, lots of stout qualities here. Coffee grains, cocoa and roasted malts. Hops in the aftertaste. Some grassy hops, pine. Spicy herbal notes. Long finish, bitter and dry. Overall, damn fine black IPA. Robust and tasty.

The_Osprey (9935) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2018
Keg at Mother Kelly's Vauxhall as Põhjala Mets, 7%. Pours opaque black with a huge dense foamy brown head that leaves full lacing. Aroma is fruited chocolate and toasted tea cake. Body is lightish but rounded with soft carbonation. Taste is quite complex with more fruited 50% chocolate, smoke, toasted malts, tangy dried fruit, dark bread and some salt and paprika, faint pine and floral notes, creamy coffee. A very good CDA without a doubt. Flavour keeps you guessing constantly. (8-4-8-4-16=4.0)

BeardedAvenger (1336) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2018
Key at Mother Kelly's SE1. Aroma is initially of charcoal and dark chocolate before floral berries come through. Dark and glossy. Thick creamy beige head. Light bitterness which is uplifted by a creamy sweetness. Medium bodied. Creamy. Average carbonation. Slightly astringent finish. Well balanced smooth Black IPA.

alteregoo (1875) - Kalisz, POLAND - JAN 10, 2018
Bardzo obfita, gruba piana, piwo ewidentnie przegazowane. Barwa brązowo czarna, nieprzejrzysta. W aromacie trochę jagód, czekolady, świerku, żywicy i kociego moczu... W smaku podobnie, wytrawne, delikatnie kwaskowe od jagód, czuć iglaki, lekką paloność, prażone ziarno, popiołowość i wysoką, długą, drażniącą goryczkę. Jest też w aftertejsie motyw funky w typie starego, zbutwiałego drewna czy piwnicy... Bardzo wysokie, grube, musujące wysycenie, lekko alkoholowe w odczuciu.
Ogólnie piwo po prostu nie wytrzymało próby czasu (pite 10 miesięcy po terminie), ocena potencjalnie nieadekwatna do świeżej warki.

33cl flesje gekregen via Keepin it Hoppy, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 7% Uitgeschonken in origineel Pôhjala glas Uiterlijk: zwart met mooie volle cremelaag Aroma en smaak: neus is donker fruit, bloemig, dennenboom, smaak is volle bak koffie, gebrande mouten, citrus van de spruce tips, donker fruit van zwarte bessen, goede bitter Conclusie: koffie verdringt het fruitige wat maar erg lekker

3.8
sjogro (5260) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2018 Bottle at home. Black with tan head. Sweet roasted chocolate malts, charcoal, resin, laurel, pine, spruce and berries. Moderate sweet and strong bitter. Medium body, fluffy carbonated feel, powdery dry finish. Nice. A faint line between ‘Black forest IPA’, Schwarz and Dry Stout.

Syrupy aroma, strong herbal and roasted malt notes. Pitch black color with huge brown head. Medium to heavy bitterness, herbs and grass. Medium body, soft carbonation. Lovely bitter cocoa finish. //tap at MCBF2017 and later (even better) bottle in Craft Room
