themightylazza (108) - - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle at the lowlander in drury lane. Stale vegetable aroma which is none too pleasing, but a pleasant coffee roasted malt flavour, astringent in character. Bitter chocolate malt finish, quite impressive.

ElManana (1961) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2015
Bottle at Gents Bierfestival. Weard I never tried this before. Roast, light bitterness, quite sweet and malty. I wouldve liked more tropical fruits, and American hops in this. Maybe it wasnt as fresh as it shouldve been? Decent enough.

Bov (12109) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 18, 2015
from Au Grain dOrge, Crissier - very dark brown beer under a solid long lasting beige foam; nice lace-work; licorice and black cherries dominate the nose; full-bodied and quite sweet; fairly bitter, some residual sweetness in a long hoppy finish showing notes of prunes, black cherries and licorice - quite simplistic and lacking a bit of dimension

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 10, 2015
Dark brown with thick dense head. Roasted malts, caramel, light coffee, hops. Sweet with a bitter and alcoholic finish. Quite syrupy, full bodied, average to low carbonation.

guzgorog (748) - FRANCE - SEP 9, 2015
Brune trs fonce, reflets rougeatres, mousse gnreuse et qui tient bien. Nez de pruneaux, de fruits confits, de cerises, caramel et notes de malts grills. Attaque bien amre, malts grills, caf, fruits confits, fruits mrs, pruneaux, fruits confits, le houblon est bien prsent. Superbe complexit. Alcool bien prsent mais pas pregnant, le corps est lgrement liquoreux, belle quilibre entre lamertume et un ct lgrement sucr. On oscille continuellement entre la belgique (surtout au nez) et les USA (surtout en bouche). Cest tout fait le genre de bire que jadore ! PS : jai limpression que le gout est assez variable avec les brassins ... moins que cette bire ne soit trs volutive !

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 6, 2015
bottle, big thannks to tderoeck for the trade, fresh from the source. more like a dark red ipa than a black ipa, shortlived head, moderate lacing; aroma of cocoa powder, tropical fruits; slightly underwhelming bitterness, stonefruits, chocolate milk; okayish but not as good as i was expecting

Zakoon (484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2015
750ml bottle enjoyed @ a friends cottage. Pours dark red brown with a small off-whit head. Aroma is floral, hints of coffee, roasted malt, carame and alcohol. Flavour is bittersweet. Medium bodied, thin texture, soft texture. Finish is hoppy and rancid with a little alcohol burn.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2016 Kastanjebruin en helder, flinke beige kraag. Mout, hop, koffie, citrus, rood fruit. Iets te moutig. Alcohol weinig merkbaar. Zoet, licht bitter, licht zuur. Volle body.
