Drinking blind from a 33cl bottle. In the aroma caramel, coffee and licorice. Not so nice. The unclear darkbrown beer has quite a brown head. The taste does remind me of drinking an espresso. A thick substance that’s bitter with some sweetness underneath. Taste makes it up for the aroma. Low carbonated.

Bottle. Thx Kingcecil! Pours black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is citric hoppy with some roasted malty and licorice notes. Licorice, grapefruit and citrussy flavor. Great balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Je n’hai pas aimé cette bière, selon moi pas réussite. Vrais que je n’ai aime pas trop les black ipa, mais je ne la trouve pas si spéciale.

Encore une bière super savoureuse de chez de la Senne! Black IPA : je la situerai entre un porter et un scotch mais où l’amertume est à l’honneur sans la lourdeur glycémique. Rien qu’au nez: on sent le houblon à cru très très floral. Ce houblon accompagne toute la dégustation et lui donne son cachet. En bouche, la gorgée est légèrement sirupeuse mais plus sur le bonbon ou le sucre d’orge que sur le sucre, et assez huileuse à cause de ce houblon à cru. La levure associé à l’alcool - très discret au demeurant - développe des saveurs de cacao et un palais visqueux; le tout donnant un brune fort moelleuse et plutôt atypique. Encore, encore j’en veux encore !
