Van 't vat. Zwart bier met ecru schuim. Geur: geroosterde mout, licht aards, noterig. Smaak: koffie, licht zoet, korst van goed gebakken brood. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter, kruidig. Black IPA? Een zeer zachte dan! Het is gewoon een aangenaam drinkbaar zwart bier. Beerhunter111 (22979) - P´Castle, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2017

Bottle. Unclear dark brown body with a small, lacing beige head. Distinct aroma of dark, medium roasted malt, grassy hops and light fruit. Flavor is dark roasted malt with grassy bitterness, some fruit and a hint of cooked vegetables. Medium body and average aftertaste. Decent but a bit ordinary and a little negative feelings for the vegetable part. beeebon (495) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle from Home Bargains for 89p, bargain! Pours very dark with medium tan head. Aroma is toasty malt, a bit of ash/smoke, some vanilla, a touch of chocolate and a resinous and citric hop presence, quite complex! Taste is medium smokey bitterness but also pelasingly sweet. Light sparkle in the carbonation but also rather slick and very drinkable, medium finish. Great beer! rodsquad (355) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Can from JK Fine Foods. Looks pretty black with an outlying ruby tinge. A lovely fluffy tight tan head. Looks-wise it’s spot on. Nose has an ashy smokiness over chocolate truffles. A little soft vanilla. A touch of lime, a touch of booze and a dusty grain. The taste matches the nose with plenty of smoke and ash. A nice smooth chocolate follows. There’s a surprising fruitiness too that’s quite citric. A refreshing medium body with a bit of smooth wash. A dry moderate to light sparkle. It’s a strange one that’s for sure. It’s seriously ashy providing a lingering bitterness. But it also has a real light fruity quality that stands at odds with the bold front. But it really is incredibly moreish.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Bottle from M&S. very black with a tan head. Light yeasty aroma. A light, chocolate porter. Nowt special. prawlie (1684) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle. Chocolate orange aroma with some pine needle. Nutty, chocolate, rich, with a light, zesty hop bite. I got on well with this, a good blend of drinkability and complexity.
