Ottima black ipa dal profumo molto pronunciato di fiori e erba con sentori leggeri di malto, al gusto uno splendido amaro la rende amabile. Vincitrice miglior birra IBF 2012 ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

SimonBeer (109) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2015
(Drinking date: 8 April 2015) The beer looks beautiful. Really black beer with a nice, creamy, beige layer of foam on it. Nice aroma of citrus, chocolate and coffee and a but of berries. Strange aroma in the background. The citrus aroma could have been more present, now the coffee/chocolate is the most present aroma. The taste is nice and bitter, fresh, coffee/chocolate-bitterness. Bitter coffee-like aftertaste, which lasts long. The hops could/should have been more present in both the aroma and the taste to make ik a real black ipa. The mouthfeel is a bit too watery. Medium carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer, but not the best black ipa. The fresh hops should have been more present, now it is more a fresh stout. Overall I enjoyed the beer though. Total score: 3.6

Kauge (546) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (€ 4.95). BB 30.04.2015. Pours dark brown, no light getting through. Head is tan with fairly good retention and some sparse lacing. Nose… pretty nice hop aromas... pungent, grassy and resinous with minimal spiciness coming through the thick chocolaty malts and roastiness. Taste… mixture of chocolaty sweet and resiny bitter, but overall very sweet and kinda mawkish due to maybe Amarillo dominating a bit too much. Seems like the sweetness draws back later on and the bitterness accentuates. On the palate it’s smooth and soft probably thanks to rye. Dangerously quaffable - it’s somewhat watery and pretty light on the body, but the alcohol (8.2%!!) is very well hidden. Finish is on the dry side. Carbonation minimal.

P.S. - It very much resembles Panimo Hiisi’s Pläkki I just had.

tricksta_p (1653) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Aroma of roasted malt, tropical fruit, some coffee, hops. Flavour is bitter. Not the most complex or full BIPA, but this tasty beer went down well.

Flaska delad med @thaalcoholic. Svart med stort ljusbrunt skum. Humlig doft med en svag ton av bränd malt. Smaken går åt samma håll. Helt ok.
