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.

BBE 14.03.2015 - Pours pitch black with a thick light brown head. Aroma of licorice, roasty malts, grassy hops, syrup and chocolate. Taste is hoppy, roasty and grassy with loads of licorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Finish is lingering bitter, fruity and roasty with some salty licorice and syrupy notes. Quite nice and balanced.

Bottle. Pours black with beige head, that stays nicely. Hoppy aroma! Really nice. In taste you gate coffee roastiness but a lot of hops too. They didn’t forget about bitterness and I’m really glad with that. Reallt good beer!

Big frothy and almost creamy head on top of some black liquid. Ahh what a lovely aroma. Black IPA hurray. Tropical fruity, dark malt, grapefruit hoppy and some chocolate. Medium to full body. Fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Smooth carbonation. Powerful lovely bipa. Nice balance in the flavor as well. Chocolate, coffee, fruity and grapefruit hoppy.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from a trade with McTapps & MichaelAwesome - many thanks to both of you! Pours hazy dark coffee brown with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of roast and citrus. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with clear notes of roast, liquorice, caramel malt and citrus - a complex experience, indeed. Rough, roasty and bitter afteraste. An interesting one.
