kajser27 (396) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 6, 2015
Black colored, medium strong tan creamy lasting head, nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt a bit burnt notes, citrus, tropical fruits and some floral, moderate strong. Taste is medium+ sweet caramel, chocolate, bit of candy syrupy, citrus and fruity hoppy, roasted burnt finish and aftertaste. Medium+ bitterness, moderate- hoppiness. Medium+ bodied, moderate carbonation, bit thick and oily. Strong hops in the aroma but the hop intensity doesn’t follow in the flavor.

750 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a massive, stable, dense, creamy, dark beige head.
Unique aroma of citrus candy, grass, chocolate, some coffee, some pine, soap.
Tastes of citrus, orange, grass, chocolate, some coffee, cocoa, spices, some pine, some soap.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, roasty, piney, a bit zesty, with some chocolate.

Really interesing. Quite unique, smooth, not as roasty as other BIPAs and really well balanced. Drinks really easy for the ABV. Actually I prefer Black IPAs with more roasty and piney notes, but this is a pleasant alternative.

Gurthnar (3170) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle. Aroma dried fruits, dark fruits, prunes, also lots of toffee and roasted, lightly diacetyl. As it warms a bit the hops go more forward. Very dark colour. Stable beige head. Taste is hard on roasted, lots of fruitiness, kind of porter-like. The hops manifests mostly in the finish, along with the alcohol. rather bitter, moderately so.

Black, medium brown head. Hops, rye spiciness and roastiness on the nose. Medium bodied, bitter - both roasty and hoppy - some notes of dark chocolate. Definite rye spiciness. Finishes warming, bit dry and warming. Wonderful!

mmahut (1521) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours in dark amber, almost black color with medium creamy tan head. Aroma has coffee, woody, light fruity, roasty. Mostly on the sweet chocolate-coffee like side. Taste has moderate to high fruity bitterness upfront with gentle chocolate sweetness to balance it out. The bitterness is little bit grassy. Body is medium to low with medium to low carbonation as well. Good.

Deep black colour with beige head. Nice coffe to cacao flavours with roasted malts. Just a hint of grassy hops. Very pleasant but still interesting bitterness.
