Piero1987 (686) - Iglesias, - NOV 18, 2012
Black color with ivory head. Spicy aroma, pepper and coriander. At palate spicy flavour is stronger than hop bitterness.

Idiosynkrasie (3924) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
330ml bottle. Jet black colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, ochre head. Herbal hoppy aroma, peppery background, a floral touch of rose pepper, dry dark malty basis. Taste is slightly chocolately dark malty, subtle sweetness, herbal hoppy overtones, cautious but accumulating peppery background. Nice, discernible pepper note, neglectible hoppiness for a Black IPA.

Sono rimasto molto piacevolmente colpito da questa birra. Si presenta con un bel colore tonaca di frate e una schiuma ricca anche se non troppo persistente. Al naso prevale il luppolo e il tostato, mentre le note di buccia d’arancia emergono con splendore e si sposano alla perfezione al corpo morbido. Il retrogusto è lungo e il pepe resta con vigore sulla lingua. Ottima.

Beerheart65 (1001) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Black, thin off-white head, some lacing. Aroma has salty licorice, coffee. Light with low carbonation, spicy and interesting flavor, medium body. Ok, tasty and nuanced.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle (6%). Dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some roasted malt, some spiciness (coriander, pepper) and light hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and roasted malt with some spiciness, light hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel and roasted malt - faint burnt malt, sharp peppery spiciness, light -some citrus - piney hoppyness. BIPA with pepper and coriander - not for me.

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottled at Winston Fest. Dark opaque black color, good beige head. Grassy, berryish aroma. Medium-bodied. Very berryish sweet flavor. Light coffee. Not hoppy enough. Off flavors.

jookos (2320) - FINLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown, black really. Initial whiff had some green citrus hoppyness, but after that’s subdued, there’s a strong black peppercorn, light roasty aroma left. Pretty interesting actually. Body soft, smooth, medium full. Creamy almost. Has sweetness, bitters, roasted malts and some milkshake. Good black papper is something I really enjoy. With the hops, this gives a real nice light citrusy, cedary resinous sweet black pepper aroma, similar to roasting, say, a good tellicherry. Real nice.

Tap @ Tuulensuu. Pours black with a thick beige head. Dark malts, black pepper in the aroma. Sweet malty, bitter, some pepper in the flavor.

Leaking bottle. Opaque dark brown - black beer. Good bubbly pale tan head. Palate is airy and crisp and semi dry. Minerals, Mild dark malts with mild unsweet dark chocolate. Very light peppery spice. Hops are a very mild orange marmalade. Light dry finish. It’s an okay for a dark ale but very hop light for a CDA.

Draught at the Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland. Black colour with a small creamy tan head. Berries, mild hops and some sweetish malt in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, sweetness, mild bitterness and some hops. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
