oh6gdx (23182) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled. More or less black colour, with a off-white mediumsized head, that leaves lace. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild liquorice as well as some toasted notes. Flavour is mild toffee, chocolate, some toasted notes as well as liquorice and a quite rich floral and fruity hop profile. Nice bitterness, and actually the balance is rather ok in this beer.

On tap at Bir & Fud. Actually not that black! Clear deep amber beer. Little off white head. Strong Nelson Sauvin cats piss nose. Softish palate. Piney sweetish Nelson with a little with a little mixed fruit. Blackcurrant. An interesting take on the style.

Draft at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary, courtesy of staff, thank you! Clear dark maroon color, fluffy beige head. Roasty coffee grounds aroma, light pine. Taste is very malty. Taste is OK, but it doesn’t taste anything like any black IPA I’ve ever had before. Off style.

Draught at Eataly, Bologna
Black color, or very dark mahogany, with creamy head. Very nice hoppy aroma, still fruity, with some caramel. Mild flavor of roasted malt, with good hopping; the body structure is good, but getting drier at the end.
Fresh and very good, more balanced that most other beers in the style.
