lmastr (32) - Norma, ITALY - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of hops, a bit fruity. Looks very nice, pitch black with coffee like head. Tastes of roasted malts that soon evolves in a nice bitterness, that prepares you to sip more and more.

Beerheart65 (1084) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Clear dark pour turns out as black in glass, magic! Nice color, one finger creamy light brown head sticks nicely giving good lacing rings. Hoppy fresh and fruity aroma, pine needles, roasted malt, tropicality. Good palate, oily but not sticky, medium bodied, slick, bitter but not overwhelmingly, semisweet, long nuanced and lively finish. Really good stuff in all areas.

On draft in Madrid. Light bodied Black IPA. A bit hazy and a deep dark brown color. A little light on aroma for me, but the balance is fantastic. Carb level is perfect, and a great bitterness level that is present, but allows the malt character to come through. Great example of the style!
