Marstonlad (1040) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2018
UPDATED: APR 23, 2018 Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours black with a medium-sized frothy head. The aroma features sweetish, lightly roasty dark maltiness; chocolate, rye bread, nuts. Fairly mild hop presence. Taste is also not very hoppy; it is dominated by roasty maltiness with only light hoppy bitterness balancing towards finish. Flavours of chocolate, salted licorice, coffee. The palate is medium-bodied and smooth, low to average in carbonation. Cascade is totally missing here. Not bad as such but far cry from a proper black IPA.

AssKicker (835) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 20, 2018
UPDATED: APR 20, 2018 Bue à la pression. Couleur brune foncée. Mousse légère qui perdure sur son lit. Nez zarbi, plutôt sur le plastique. En bouche le corps est très léger. Aromatiquement parlant c'est aussi léger. Un peu chocolat, un peu café, pas du tout houblon. Meh...

rumore (1074) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 18, 2017
33cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy, excited four months ago. Pours dark, slightly purple, with cappuccino foam, very fine. Aroma is toasted, licorice, a little balsamic. Body is slightly dense, with good carbonation, maybe a little excessive. Taste is insistingly bitter. Finish is not particular.

pivnizub (11061) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2017
Bottiglia (@Rudat, Oespel): Literally black, presumably hazy, medium-sized and slowly collapsing tanned head; solid dry toasty and roasty and caramelly nose with a piney to flowery background; moderate to solid bitter flavour, medium bodied, very soft; coffeeish and roasty flavours in the flowery-bitter finish. More a decent Dry Stout than an IPA...

19Oracolo78 (244) - ITALY - JUN 30, 2017
Birra dal colore marrone scuro. Schiuma color caffelatte, grossolana e poco persistente. Al naso sentori di caffe, frutta esotica e rucola. Al palato oleosa e mediamente carbonata. Note di malto tostato, caffè e liquirizia. Nel finale rimane amara ed erbacea e dopo la bevuta asciuga l’oleosità percepita all’inizio. Una buona birra particolare ma che non se ne può abusare ma deve essere bevuta con parsimonia.

Grumbo (4983) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Tap at Open Baladin, Roma. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of hop, citrus fruit, light roasted malt, chocolate and pine. Light sweetness, toward heavy bitterness. Light body, slight oily and watery texture, soft carbonation. Finish is dry, and of bitter fruit and chocolate.

Fat Tre små rum. Doftar angenämnt fint av hav och lite ek. Smakar svagt av ek fin jävla ek. Lite svaga fina rostade toner. Överraskande god.

BenL8 (330) - SWITZERLAND - APR 28, 2017
Pours complete black with a rich layer of head. Tiny bubbles form the foam. Aroma is rich and smooth, intense cocoa nibs. Dark malts, chocolate, herbal hops, a bit grassy. Medium body. Rich smooth mouthfeel. Cocoa is also intense in flavour, dark malts, very hoppy-herbal, bitter, bitter dark chocolate, a little sweet. Medium long bitter finish. What a brilliant black IPA!

33cl bottle. Pours very dark brown colour with a huge, big good lasting tan head. Aroma of dark malt, sweet malt, chocolate, bitter citrus hops. Taste of strong bitter hops, citrus, dark roasted malt, coffee, long bitter finish.
