Decent brew, like most of this brewery. Iím a fan of "Black IPA" mostly, and this one is a decent beer in that style for sure.

330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Wow. Have not tried the original two beers yet but this is truly a taste to behold. Big bitter roasted malts hugging a razor-edged hoppy influence. Incredible.

Getting a lot more stout than IPA in the taste. To be honest I get a lot more quadí than stout in the aromas (boiled sweets). Canít find a label that fits for this beer but itís interesting. Palate is very velvety and laaaaaasting bitterness !

Itís perfectly clear, dark copper color, with beautiful head. Very nice aroma of dark malts, but yet itís so fresh and lite. Itís the same history in the taste. IPA start, CDA finish and huge stout in aftertaste. Itís a bomb of flavours and aromas. Huge and awesome beer.

Beczka 0,2 l, Zaklęte Rewiry, Wrocław. Aromat: palony, czekoladowy z amerykańskim chmielem (jakieś cytrusy i sosna). Piana beżowa, dość obfita i trwała. Ładnie zdobi szkło. Smak: podobnie jak w aromacie. Słodkie, z wyraźną goryczką. Tekstura gęsta, wysycenie niskie.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head that fades very fast. Aroma of a surprisingly nice mix of super hoppy resinous notes and a very roasted, coffee scent with malt front and centre. Full-bodied; Strong roasty flavours with vanilla, oak and chocolate the most noticeable, but the bitter hop flavours show through as well with a good citrus and piney bite near the end. Aftertaste shows a deep robust chocolate and coffee flavour of malts with a good hop flavour as well - a surprisingly nice balance, even though itís strong on both fronts. Overall, a nice beer, especially for the price - good to try, but not worth searching out for. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased a few hours ago from Southern Season in Charleston, South Carolina on 19-April-2015 for US$3,19 sampled in my hotel room in Charleston, South Carolina a few hours later on 19-April-2015.

Bottle: Poured a dark black with a light mocha color head and gentle lace along the edges of the glass. It has a dark roasted coffee aroma with a strong coffee, coca and a hoppy taste. There is a thick creamy mouth feel along with a good amount of bitterness at the end.
