COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration brew with Stillwater Artisanal Ales (USA). Crowned last week with a golden Award for Best newcomer in the world 2011.

This Belgian Strong Ale was married to a still young but powerful style, the Black IPA. Youll discover a smooth chocolate like strong ale together with the high & bitter hop schedule of an IPA, and you get a great result...

MPA (979) - Amager (form. Nrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. LOT 01/01/2011. Black with a light brown head. Aroma of cocoa and red grapes. Flavour of roasted malts with chocolate sweetness, a vinous touch and a long lasting malty bitterness. Potent stuff and very, very delicate.

RexTalionis (3611) - FINLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle. Black in color with a tan head. Really musty dark fruityness, bit of peppery spicyness and cold coffee notes in aroma. Bit of burnt wooden smokyness and dark chocolate too. Quite nice. Cocoa and roasted coffee notes in taste, where the chocolate part is more evident at first. Smooth mouthfeel too, excellent. Green herbs and spicy notes in finish together with some warming notes with them nice chocolatey notes still being present.

eduardovl (1372) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Pours a deep brown to black color. Forms a quite big and dark beige head when poured. Quite aired. Retention is low, however it never disappears completely leaving an almost brown and bubbled layer. Many lacings are left S: Strong on dark chocolate. Belgian yeasts. Fruity and liquorous. Very spicy, notes of anis, cinnamon and mint. Intense flowery hops. Perfect nose T: Very tasty beer, an Struise (thanx god :p). Sweet upfront. Chocolate, roasted malts, hints of coffee, Belgian yeasts. Again, very spicy. Hints of anis and mint. Stingy hoppy bitter end M: Extremely creamy beer. Molasses. Medium carbonation. Delicious bitter aftertaste O: Absolutely drinkable beer despite the 10% ABV. An Struise, nothing else to say [ BA Review @ 1/6/2012 ]

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Extremely odd yet interesting and full-flavored beer. Loaded with a tea-like flavors from start to finish. Cola-like sweetness. Boozy, Long Island Iced Tea aspects, too. Aromas of perfume and herbs follow. Hints of chocolate and softened dark grains. Elements of dark fruit slowly surface, especially as the beer warms; prunes mostly. Also some black licorice in there. What a ride.
