Peltoch (11) - FRANCE - JUN 17, 2013
Achetée à Saveur Drink, très belle bière noire surmontée d’une fine mousse blanche. Le nez est très houblonné avec de superbe notes d’agrumes (citron, pamplemousse...). En bouche, belles saveurs houblonnées d’agrumes, fin de bouche sèche et amère. Une superbe black IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 Carbonation refreshing. Sharp but coffee like other porters. Still refreshing like an IPA is.

SarkyNorthener (1740) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with off white medium head. Aroma is very hoppy and pine. Taste is hops, pine, roasted malts, coffee, citrus and a touch of bitter chocolate. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. A very nice black IPA. I do prefer the Buxton Black Rocks slightly more though.
