3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it, served into a pint glass. Dark brown with some ruby red tinges, and a beige frothy head. Pungent aroma of resiny hops, wet leaves, black tea, and just a hint of roasted malts and fresh coffee beans. Heavy bitterness, but without being overwhelming, little astringency. Pleasent creamy mouthfeel, medium body and medium to light carbonation. Pretty solid BIPA, but I’d love to try a very fresh bottle or better yet, on tap.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap@ahven. Pitch black. Rubbery chocolate, with a bunch of citrus pine hops. Full bodied, smooth with a salt licorice, slightly astringent, ashy roasted finish. Some yeasty flavours, a lot of green citrus hops. Some sweetness, but surprisingly drinkable for the abv. Nice one, could have another.

Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. Smooth palate with light fine carbonation. Smooth dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Nice dark malt cream. Pleasant mellow pine hops and a touch of red berry fruits. Smooth finish makes a smooth Black IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 27.09.2013, tap @ Borefts:
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh, dark malts, hops, leafs, rubber, coffee, caramel. Taste is slightly dry and roasted, dark malts, hops, pine needles, grass, licorice, rubber, bark, cardboard, coffee. Longlasting bitterness, dry and slightly watery mouthfeel. Fair enough.
