UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Aroma: grass, coffee, citrus, resin, cocoa, chilli, grape, caramel, vanilla, bubblegum; Appearance: dark brown, small foamy head; Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: slick texture, full body, average carbonation, long finish Pretty dry after aging, yet still pretty drinkable and with well-hidden alcohol. Crosses style borders between black IPA and a RIS thanks to maturing. Patjeadam (161) - NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
Amazing black ipa. A real grower. Beautiful roasted smell. Some nice light fruits appear. First taste bitter - tropical fruits - heavy yet light. Easy drinkable. Demands more. The roasted malts settle in an amazing marriage with the fruits. Amazing!

Flaske,375 ml. Brunsort, cremet lysebrunt skum. Dufter heftigt af vådt træ. Og let sødlig mørk chokolade. Chardonnay. Salt-lakrids. Cola-frugt? Fyldig, hårdtristet og bitter. Træ. Trods fadet og de ristede noter stadig en black ipa. Og overraskende nok næsten bedre end originalen. Ren meditation. Benzai (16931) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque black color, medium to full sized creamy brown head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, some hops and some wine influences. Taste malts, lightly hops, roasted malts, again some wine influences, nicely bitter. Oh this is nice, very nice.

375ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large light tan head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Pine needle and grapefruit hops mix with soft toffee, black coffee and a touch of oak to create the aroma. Prickling pine needle and grapefruit hops up front give way to roasty malt and black coffee in the mid-palate. Bitter cocoa leads into dry, slightly spicy chardonnay in the finish. This is a very nice, complex black IPA, highly enjoyable. Kudos for the Clash reference too.
