Ottima questa Black IPA, decisamente + IPA che Black...aroma di pompelmo ben percettibile, aghi di pino e leggero tostato...forse non proprio un esempio dello stile in causa ma sempre un’ottima bevuta

Dark brown color, good brownish head. Woody hoppy, a bit toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Grassy, piney hoppyness, toasted, slightly sweet malty base. Sweetish black ipa, but very enjoyable with good malt profile.

Shaker glass at sinisternoise, Rome. Dark brown color, thick creamy beige head, intense nose of fruits raisins and hops. Aroma if tropical fruits, grapefruit, citrus, come caramel, lots of roasted malts and interesting american hops. Earthy, possibly yeast. Nice taste curve from the initial caramel sweetness to the hoppy bitter finish. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, dry finish. My first black IPA, nice experience.

Spina @ birrart.
Scura con schiuma persistente.
Luppolatura invadente, ma piacevole.
Un po' troppo poco black...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; bb 29.07.14
Dark brown color, small head. Aroma of hops and earth, dusty malt. It blends some Belgian Dubbel character (caramelly, moderately sweet) with a touch of roasted malts and modern hopping; quite strong bitterness.
Crossover; strange; but not bad.
