3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ In De Wildeman (11%!). Almost (but not quite) black color, soapy, beige head. Aroma’s of smoke, tar, leather, citrus. Flavor is sweet-ish & bitter, with a hint of sourness. Doesn’t taste so boozy, but the alcohol is prickly in the throat. Low carbonation. Finishes bitter and with remaining tar & leather.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival. Murky brown pour, tan head. Aroma has lots of smoke, burned wood, lots of citrusy and grassy hops underneath, but mainly smoke. Notes of liquorice and sweet chocolate. Taste has lots of hoppy bitterness, citrusy and fruity american hops, hints of smoke, liquorice and coffee bitterness. Experimental and somewhat messy.

Pour opaque black, with a large foamy head.
Aroma has plenty of grass, pine, ceder, and a little bit of smoke and leather.
The beer has a nice balance to it.
Medium body, with a small amount of CO2, too little in my opinion.
I like the idea of a black ipa, and the smokeyness is a Nice touch.

75cl bottle, got it from Zombier. Pours deep dark brown with medium beige frothy head. Smoke, chocolate, dried fruits and hops on the nose, exactly as expected. The taste is dominated by roasted malts, but the smoke and the hops are present as well. The palate is lightly sweet, similar to caramel. Medium body, good carbonation. Very interesting beer overall, well balanced and pretty tasty.

Provada al Borefts 2011. Una mica decepcionant. La trobo un pel aigualida i sosa en boca. Però s’ha de dir que just abans havia provat la BDVI.

drank it at Borefts Beer... smooth texture, lots of smoke, like an Emelisse BIPA, but better, tougher...
