Pours a deliciously thick black with an amazing hop burst rising out of the glass. Packed with the pungent fruit of citra hops the beer’s backbone holds it up well. Exquisitely balanced, with a moderate roast character letting the hops do the bittering. There is sweetness in there but exactly the right amount. This is a hell of a beer.

Aroma of malt, roast, citrus, hint of tropical fruits, plenty of coffee, some chocolate, hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a long roasty hoppy bitter finish. Top of the line Black IPA.

martjoobolut (1561) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2015
0,33L can (from Koht, Tallinn). Pours dark brown-black with beige brownish head. The head stays. Aroma is roast, coffee, malt, some citrus and alcohol (especially after it warms up). Flavor is bitter and sweet, roast, malt, coffee, fruits, pine. Finish is intense roast-pine bitter. Overall: ok, feels somewhat similar to one of our local craft (Ulg by Põhjala), but somewhat more refined.

Black beer (duh) with off white head. Big citrus aromas, light roasted flavours, with a hint of coffee... citrus bitter hops, dry and medium sweet... nice BIPA, but personally I like them with the roasted malts a bit more forward...

Don’t think this was kept in the best condition, and wasn’t poured well. But the hop influence was still there, need to try it again .
