Majek (415) - Ząbki, - MAR 16, 2014
Black colour, big, but not stable beige head. Strong aroma of grapefruit and mango, typical for IPA. Some roasted malts appears only in taste. Nice balance of maltiness (dark chocolate) and bitterness (grapefruit and lemon zest). Soft carbonation. Over medium body. Very good black IPA.

Countbeer (4974) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle (33cl): Served in a shaker at 13 degrees Celsius: Medium sized beige head. Deep dark black brown beer. Aroma is incredible yet smooth and not exaggerated hoppy with some nice roasty tones. Very well balanced! Flavour is more or less the same as the aroma but than with more fruit, bitters, resin, some sweets, little pine tones and floral tones. Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, herbal and floral tones, light grassy, very hoppy and a toast sprinkle. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Serious delicious beer!

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 (1090) - 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.
