_angst_ (2564) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2013
Pours dark wooden brown with a small frothy and creamy blackish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is malty, fruity, herbal and floral with roasted malts, graham crackers, ammonium chloride, resinous wood, roquefort cheese, pine cones, grapefruit rinds, lemon peal, dark roast coffee, high cocoa content dark chocolate, lemon balm, dill, unripe tropical fruits and hints of chocolate covered cherries and freshly picked black currants. Taste is bitter, tiny salty, herbal, floral and tiny fruity with roasted malts, caramel, licorice fudge, ammonium chloride, fresh oily pine cones, resinous wood, gooseberries, lemon balm, dill, grapefruit, lemon and orange peal, heavy dark roast coffee, pure cocoa powder, chocolate cake, old cheese, pumpernickel bread, unripe mango, pineapple, dried black currants and freshly cut grass. Mouthfeel is soft, round, oily bitter, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter, herbal and floral with roasted malts, resinous wood, pine cones, lemon and orange peal, fresh dark roast coffee, grapefruit juice, gooseberries, lemon balm, freshly cut grass, bitter chocolate, black currant leaves, unripe tropical fruits and hints of dried flowers. Wow! I’m amazed by this simple yet majestic BIPA. For the first time in ages Dugges are impressing me a lot and I’m happy to see them win back my heart after what has seemed like the dark ages filled with mostly witch hunts, scurvy and bland seasonal bitters.

Franzen (269) - SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle from systembolaget. It pours black with a nice thick beige head. The aroma is rich in citrus, chocolate and grass. The taste begins sweet and chocolately but pretty fast becomes hoppy. The chocolate, fruit and bitterness combination is really nice. The finish leaves a nice bitterness although it is a bit short. A relly good Black Ipa which stand as a good example as to why I love this style
