first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out. surprisingly, the beer isn’t black, but dark-brown - but I think it can be the case with CDAs. the best thing about this beer is the aroma, hoppy, with lots of esters, it comes out really nice. the taste is also very hoppy - not only in bitterness, which is quite high but very noble and short, but also in the taste as such. It’s really enjoyable. foam is nice, too. drawbacks? a bit too thin, I think it would be better with a slightly more ’full’ body. a bit soury too, but it’s not a problem for me - it’s got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me it’s great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma.

heman (156) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Piwo ma barwę rubinowo-brunatną, piana tworzy się z łatwością, ładnie zdobi szkło i redukuje się do cienkiej warstewki. Po otwarciu butelki nasze nozdrza od razu atakuje chmiel. W głównej mierze mamy cytrusy, ale takie zielone, niedojrzałe, wyczuć można też trochę żywicy. W tle delikatne muśnięcie słodów, kojarzące się z ciemnym słodkim pieczywem. W smaku piwo jest niezwykle fajnie ułożone. Goryczka pojawia się już na początku i powoli wzrasta do poziomu średnio-wysokiego. Wyraźnie czuć cytrusy w postaci cytryn i limonki, a w tle lekki karmel, z tymże jakby trochę przypalony. Ale typowych nut od słodów ciemnych w tym piwie nie uświadczymy. W ustach po każdym łyku pozostaje posmak gryzionego albedo grejpfruta. Piwo niezwykle szybko znika ze szkła.

cardofab (232) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - MAR 17, 2012
Colore marrone tobido, schiuma infinita non compatta ma durevole, al naso č veramente notevole con note di luppolo e malto tostato, leggermente fruttata e resinosa. In bocca č equilibrata, amara e ben luppolata con note leggermente resinose e tostate. Ottima.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
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.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours dark brown but turns black as it pools in the glass with a big off white head. Nose is fresh pine, roasted coffee and ocean spray. Taste is mostly bitter throughout. Light sweetness for balancing. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Medium body with a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1244) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 9, 2012
03/06/2012 La Tana (tap). Marroncina, non molto intensa, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, a grana grossolana, abbastanza persistente. Naso splendido, come consuetudine per le creazioni di Leonardo, luppoli e malti tostati si sposano alla perfezione. In bocca č un bel mix di malti tostati e luppoli, con un perfetto equilibrio generale. Corpo un po’ leggerino, carbonazione corretta. Birra magnifica.

DeliriumT (374) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2012
This beer pours a nice black colour with decent lasting white head. The aroma is fresh and full of resiny hops. The flavour is lightly burnt sugar with citrus bitterness. Very enjoyable Italian black IPA.
