Tognetta (394) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 30, 2015
Ambar avermelhado acobreada, espuma bege, boa formação e persistência. Aroma misto de malte e lúpulo, fermento, dulçor, intenso. Paladar trouxe mais fermento do que esperado, mas ainda sim prazerosa, maltada.

drjoeng (207) - - JUL 21, 2015
5.8% ABV. Black IPA. Color is dark brown about 20ºSRM. Tangerines. Ripe pineapples. I’m guessing the hops are going to be largely aromatic and not too aggressive in the bitterness department. Aggressive carbonation. Some dark roasted flavors. There’s the expected ume like finish in the end, just a brief glimpse. Sour palate, not like a sour beer, but there and pronounced. No bitter hops to my hophead palate.

Draft at Bir+Fud, Rome. Dark, gray brown, yellow tan foam. Sweet, tart, a bit cola. Ok.

MrJoller (101) - ITALY - JUN 2, 2015
Light brownish pour with frothy head. Roasted "stout" taste is bary noticeable, strong strong resin taste because of simcoe. Light body and not much carbonated.
