Aromat palonych slodow , lekkiej kawy. Piana srednio obfita drobnopecherzykowa, szybko opada, ladnie koronkuje. Wysycenie niskie. W smaku dominuja palone slody, pojawia sie delikatna kawa i czekolada. Pojawia sie rowniez kwaskowatosc od slodow. Goryczka srednia w kierunku wysokiej.

Butelka, pod mosteczkiem, pite dosc cieple. w aromatach palonosc, amerykanskich chmieli nieco, zboze, bardzo w tle jakas czekoladowa-kawowosc. W smaku dosc analogicznie. goryczka raczej dosc wysoka. niezawiele ciala. niekiedy pojawiaca sie rozpuszczalnikowo-alkoholowa nutka. calkiem fajne

Towey1989 (727) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A deep brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, some coffee, some dark chocolate, slight grapefruit and pine. Taste of pine, resin, roasted malts, dark chocolate, some orange, grapefruit and liquorice. Full bodied and a soft carbonation. A roasted, then resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A drink to sip, even at 6.5%. A good, bitter, resinous black IPA. Tastes a lot hoppier than most black IPAs, good.

Cask conditioned at Stratford upon Avon Beer Festival ’15. Black with cream head. There is a deep, dark roasted, full palate to the malts, charcoal hints with crispy toast then a strong, bittering chocolate note. Amongst all of this malty stuff going on there is a leafy, grassy, bittering hop character. Loads going on but not really that confusing. I liked this a lot and my beer of this Festival.

330ml ; oh Jesus what a superb name for a beer ..I would not call this beer a faith experience ,it is pretty mild in spiritual transcendence . But yes friends and alcoholics , JESUS is back and black ... this beer is a textbook black ipa . Nice faith redemption in the roasted finish. I wanna get down on my knees and start pleasing Jesus .

Bottle 25/05/15/. Pours pitch black with a slight tan head. Serious complex hoppy/roast aromas. Tastes roasted, slight smoke, touch of caramel, serious hoppyness going on!
