Amazing black ipa. Smooth and slightly thick body of roasted malt. Taste of coffee, some rough licorice and of course fruity hops. Very good.

Smaskifa (135) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle ’polet Vika, Oslo. Pours a nice head, doesn’t last very long but stays at a minimum on the top. The aroma is really funky: old sweaty workout suit (on the sweet side), 1950s army style fitness hall, wet dog, nosebleeds, caramelized tampon and a certain hint of just regular caramel. Seriously, among four people we really did pick up all those things. The taste was free of any of the above mentioned, apart from the caramel, slightly roasted, heavy liquorice - the style you buy in small tin cans which has a very bitter taste. Pleasant hoppy finish. The beer was very nice on the taste buds, but would easily compete with some of the more rancid cheese on the market regarding smell. Would be interesting to try it again later to see if the aroma was a one off or not.

Bottle at Cafe Sara, june 20th 2014. Black body with a small tanned head. Aroma is roasted and hoppy, fresh citrusy hops, grapefruit, peach, pineapple. Taste of bitter black coffee with juicy hops, notably grapefruit and peach, with a soft vanilla touch at the finish, leaving a fruity sweet yet bitter aftertaste. An excellent beer, this is how I like my black ipas!

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
330 ml bottle from Birra + (Bottled on 23-04-2014). Very dark brown with some red tinges, but looking almost black in the glass, with a nice, creamy and persistent light beige head. Fruity, hoppy and slightly toasted nose, plent of citrus, light lemon peel, definitely pine needles, a hint of sticky caramel, some bubblegum too. Certainly more "black" in the mouth. Bitter dark chocolate, espresso coffee notes, roasted malts, while reamaining hoppy and resinous. Not the most bitter BIPA, in fact it’s actually on the sweet side. Some alchool warming as well. Soft to average carbonation, on the higher side of medium body, slightly oily texture. Very nice aroma, but the rest didn’t follow suite. In some way unbalanced and a bit rough.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel rötlichbraunes Bier mit einer wunderbar schönen beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr hopfig fruchtig, röstmalzig, Kaffee. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, fruchtig, stark hopfig, bitter, Kaffee.

Not a bad one but also not relly hitting what I like. Thick, strong with some coffee and roasted malt. Classy classic.

Bottle from beersiveknown - many thanks, Steve! Pours out in a deep black colour with medium body and steady head. Aroma of fresh hops and roasted nuts. Taste of fresh hops, nuts, barley, spruce, oak and barrel. Fresh and citrus finish. Nice one.
