Appearance is black, opaque, a 2-finger cream head which quickly settles. Aroma- citrus fruit, orange, pineapple, malts, hint of milky coffee. Taste- lots of chocolatey malt running through, toasty malt, chewy toffee, bitter fruity hops, caramel, coffee, a bit more chocolate. Bitter and slightly chewy mouthfeel. Excellent.

azzie (780) - Pula, CROATIA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle 0.33l from Saveur Biere beer webshop. Hazy dark brown color, average beige head. Smell of pine, herbs, fruits, alcohol. Full body, medium to heavy carbonation. Too carbonated. Too strong bitterness in taste, overpowering everything else. Pine in taste with caramel and fruits. I love black ipa but this one isn’t something I enjoy.
