Tap. Pours clear black with a large creamy brown head that sticks around and laces well. Aroma is smoky, grassy/herbal, roasty malts. Flavor follows, light sweet, smoky and roasty. Floral/herbal notes and light associated bitterness. Fairly light body, quite drinkable.

Una bella dark lager. Di colore granato scuro, quasi nera con una buona schiuma pannosa. Al naso gli odori erbacei del luppolo tostato le conferiscono un odore alternativo alle sorelle Black ipa, forse più intrigante, anche se può apparire come una trovata commerciale. In bocca la tostatura dei malti si sposa bene con il floreale e l’erbaceo del luppolo che comunque gioca un ruolo di primo piano. Il fatto che sia una bassa fermentazione le conferisce a mio parere quel tocco di secchezza in più che aiuta facendo in modo che non risulti alla lunga stancante.

Un’ottima "black lager", ben luppolata, discretamente amara e godibilissima in tutta il suo germanico carattere! Gusto ricco di note di caramello e leggere di nocciola. Buona!

>> Holy **** appearance of God, extremely overcarbonated but generating an insane creamy head with retention and lacing of Zeus. Clear deep brown color. Nose is fantastic smoke, lavender, fresh herbs, assertive Black IPA style. Taste is salt, fluffy, aerated, buoyant, never thin, Black IPA bitterness and savoriness. Extremely drinkable. Shocked.

Absolutbeerginer (27) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 7, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 Mélange de malt torréfiés et houblons (fumés). Notes de café, réglisse, herbe verte, et quelques traces animales peu agréables au nez(couverture de cheval). Amertume moyenne contrebalancée par des arômes de malt torréfié qui évoluent (lentement) vers une finale sucrée. S’ajoutent quelques pointes d’acidité. Bière relativement bien équilibrée, sobre, présentée dans une bouteille élégante.

Draft at Ginger Man. Pours brown with an off white head. Light caramel malts, faint toast, and some light nutty sweetness. Some light bitterness creeps in at the end as well. Enjoyable.

Sample at Iron Abbey. Dark brown nice tan head. Aroma is murky, not sure how to describe. Flavor is chocolate with some malt sweetness, hint of roastiness and hop bitterness finish. Still murky though.

This was a Merry Christmas draft at the (surprisingly subdued) Ginger Man, where it was called Nigredo Alchemista. Porter-like schwarzbier. Lightly smoked and nicely balanced. Malty, mild espresso, a little nutty, smooth, but with a nice tingle on the palate. Bready aroma. Very nice.
