Zakoon (55) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours pitch black with an offwhite head. Aroma is fresh hops, tea and citrus. Taste is very hop driven, the malt is not dominating, mostly shows in the light bitter and dry finish. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation.

Bottle from Stewarts Wine Company. Deep black colour with a tan head. Quite malty with a solid dose of hops. Not bad and hides the alcohol well.

From keg at the Euston Tap on 9 September 2014. Not had this chappie in a while and it was a pleasure to renew acquaintance (note to self: where are my old and more extensive notes?). Really lovely fruity, tropical hop character on the nose. Excellent balance of roast and bitter/grapefruit hop character on the palate. Just as a black IPA should be.

Color negro, reflejos rojizo y espuma beige. Aromas afrutados, resinas y tostados. Cuerpo medio, inicio afrutado breve que pronto pasa a un intenso amargor seco y resinoso muy duradero. Muy rica.
