COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Das Camba Imperial Black IPA ist von einer tiefschwarzen Farbe und wird von einem kompakten, cappuccinofarbenen Schaum gekrönt. Die Nase nimmt im Vordergrund den Duft von Frühlingsblumen wie Tulpen und Margariten sowie Stachelbeere wahr, der von leichten Lakritztönen untermalt wird. Kräftige Hopfennoten aus einer Mischung von deutschen und amerikanischen Hopfensorten verbinden sich im Mund mit Röstaromen, dem Geschmack von Kaffeebohnen und Bitterschokolade, die auf der Zunge ein leicht cremiges Gefühl hinterlassen. Im Nachtrunk entfaltet das Bier eine langanhaltende und deutlich spürbare Bittere.

Not too many great black IPAs going around in the UK - lots of half-hearted attempts. So I’m pretty happy with this. There’s a lot going on - piney, citrusy bitterness against a roast coffee and chocolate malt. Low carbonation and a smokey bitter aftertaste. Ticks the boxes.

Saeglopur (685) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 16, 2015
330 ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe.de
Black, oily body, with a massive, stable, dense, creamy, lacing, coffee colored head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, peach, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, some grass.
Tastes of citrus, grapefruit, pine, peach, some tropical fruits, grass, coffee, milk chocolate, liquorice.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, a bit roasty, very hoppy, zesty, piney, with a bit coffe.

Tasty. The dark malts are a bit more in the background than usual, so that this is very hop-forward and drinks quite easy for the ABV. Propably the best beer by this brewery I’ve had.

Dark brown colour with fim head. Aroma of plums, roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Interesting mix of malty notes and very well balanced bitterness in aftertaste. This beer is incomparably better than Camba Imperial IPA.

Pedrens (127) - SPAIN - MAR 22, 2015
Botella en snifer. Color marrón rojizo oscuro, espuma beige de media formación y retención, con cierto rastro. Aromas herbales y resinados con fondo de torrefacto, en principio recuerdan un poco a cosmético,pero luego se suavizan para mejorar....algo a madera también, heno y cafe. En boca es cremosa con carbonatacion media. Dulce medio-alto con amargor medio, en buen equilibrio...dominan los sabores resinados y de café bien matizados...también en el final, bastante largo, regaliz. El alcohol presente, se nota en la garganta. Buena BIPA a buen precio.

Black with a thin head. Nice hoppy bite, some espresso flavoring and malty. A little salty with an alcohol kick. Interesting brew. Will do again

KW92 (208) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 19, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana wysoka, drobna, obfita i bardzo trwała. Oblepia szkło (lacing)
AROMAT: Świeży zapach owoców leśnych (jagoda, borówka, jeżyna), poza tym cytrusy nuty żywiczne i trawiaste, lekki karmel.
SMAK: Owocowo-cytrusowe. Odrobina karmelu i żywiczności. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, zalegająca.
OGÓLNIE: Jeśli o mnie chodzi to w tym stylu preferuję nieco mniej agresywną goryczkę. Poza tym bez zastrzeżeń. Dobrze się to pije, równie dobrze wącha, a do tego bardzo ładnie prezentuje się w szklance. Na koniec alkohol - 8,5 % to dużo, ale w tym przypadku nie jest on dominujący w smaku czy zapachu, dobrze "schowany".
