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

Ragnampiza (386) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 20, 2014
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.

> 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.

Colore scuro, poca schiuma. Profumi di caramello ed erbacei. Corpo molto leggere, carbonatazione quasi assente, molto fresca e beverina. Buon uso dei luppoli tedeschi, giusto equilibrio in bocca fra tostato, erbaceo e caramellato.

bartlebier (1645) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
0,2L draught sample@Internationales Bierdorf, Tettnanger Hopfenwandertag 2014. Brewed partly with roasted Tettnanger, now that is a great, original novelty! Pours like a powdery darkbrown velvet porter, although apparently brewed as lager (Schwarzes?). Aroma has quite some tobacco leaf, must be that roasted whole cone hop, as well as dark chocolate. Taste verges more into powder chocolate, on a whipped cream velvet yeast bed, with some floral bitters finishing it off. At only 6,5% one of the more original, elegant yet daring brews of this all in all still conservative beer venue.

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.

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.
