A Schwarzbier very hopped, as if it were a Black IPA but lager. Their beers are reinterpretations of classic styles Germans, mainly.

Aspetto: nero scuro, corvino, impenetrabile. Schiuma compatta marrone chiaro, color cappuccino. Al naso malto tostato, ma anche resina, agrumi e alcool. In bocca aroma di caffè, ma anche resina. Ottimo corpo, rotonda.

provata in bottiglia.schiuma non molto persistente..molto meglio in bocca dove eccellono le note tostate sia del malto..ma sopratutto del luppolo...note di liquirizia evidenti. Una bella birretta.

Provata alla spina al Birrificio Italiano. Era buona la Negra nella versione 2.0 ed è molto buona nella sua versione 3.0 beverina, luppolata, gustosa

330 ml bottle served in a goblett glass. Dark brown, can’t see through it, with a nice, "marshmallowy" and persistent light beige head. Powerful and rich aroma, very very hoppy (mainly citrus and pine), slightly roasted with notes of coffee powder, light toasted malts and roots/earth. It does smell way more like an BIPA than a Schwarz, wich I personally don’t mind. Liquid espresso coffee during the first sip, smooth and velvety, moderately sweet upfront, preceding a nice, citrusy and resinous bitterness. Solid malty backbone, even though it’s so easy to drink and slightly watery as it should be. Lingering chocolaty and hoppy aftertaste. By no means a traditional dark lager, but a pretty damn tasty experiment!

Keg from Balvotore, venice. Dark brown opaque beer with dirty white head. Tropical ipa aroma, smoky too. Tasty, very bitter with a bit of liquorice. Medium body, low carbonation. Very nice.

Draft. Very dark brown color, almost black, thick beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of burnt toast, lots of roast. Taste is rich roast and resiny bitterness. Very tasty.

> An incredible Black IPA...er...IPL

[ Tap ][ ChurchKey ][ 4oz ][ Mini Snifter ][ Free ][ 2/12/14 ]
>> 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.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - APR 9, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. aroma tostato, erbaceo, leggero cioccolato e liquirizia. Al palato molto pulita come si conviene ad una bassa fermentazione. Base maltata con tostato, caffè e cioccolato amaro seguito da una luppolatura erbacea e fresca che corre parallela alle note tostate che non abbandonano mai la bevuta.
