KansaiBeerLvrs (3794) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2014
Sample at Luppulo 12 labelled a Schwartz Black IPA. A dark brown pour with a foamy white head. The nose gives me dank hops & toasty dark malts. Medium bodied and smooth, the flavor is upfront coffee, then a nice mellow dose of hops. Good stuff. Exceptionally well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (967) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle @ La compagnia del Luppolo. Marrone velata, schiuma beige mediamente fine , persistente. Aroma intenso, floreale, e di noci fresche. Tostata, liquirizia e cacao amaro. Un po’ di pane abbrustolito. Gusto secco, decisamente amara, rispetto all’aroma aggiunge un piacevole sentore di fondi di caffè, ed il vegetale del luppolo è molo più deciso. Spigolosa, poco carbonata, equilibrata ed armonica.non convenzionale.

EdKing (2265) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle bought as a take out from the Italian bar at GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Dark brown opaque beer with a tan head. Nose is rich roasted malt, dark chocolate black coffee dominating with some piney hop, slight cut plant stems or vegetal, floral, herbal and a little bit of cereal malt. On the taste the roasted malt is dominant with coffee and chocolate, powdery cocoa and a combination of bitterness from the roasted malt and piney hops, which give it a little fruit and pine kick.

On tap at Il Santo Bevitore. Dark brown colour with a firm tan head. The aroma is sweet coffee, some slightly fruity notes, some pine. Flavour is coffee, some fruit and resin, solid bitterness. A bit weird but actually really good.
