Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Stas and Vova. Opaque dark brown with a beige head. A little roasty, chocolate candy aroma, bitter, a little alcoholic, a little stale and nutty taste. Medium body, fair fizz, long and a little malty finish.

pastymc (30) - Niscemi, ITALY - MAY 14, 2015
Bottiglia da 50 ml Molto scura, con lievissimi riflessi ambrati; cappello di schiuma color nocciola, intensa e persistente. Al naso pungenti note affumicate, odore di sottobosco, di fogliame bruciato, poi di nocciola, caffè, leggermente etilico. In bocca gli aromi affumicati e tostati del malto vanno ad esaltarsi, con sentori di carciofi arrosto, ancora caffè, leggero caramello. Il finale ci ricorda che è un’India Black Ale, facendo fuoriuscire la luppolatura che ben va a chiudere e bilanciare il tutto. Carbonazione medio-bassa, corpo medio-alto. Ben strutturata e ben equilibrata, piacevolissima scoperta

50cl bottle. Batch 690 brewed 27.11.2013. Pours dark cola brown with reddish accents, thick foamy uneven light beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, citrus peel, candied fruits. Taste is roasted malts with some smoked and meaty notes, some ground coffee, faint citrus. Probably the hops are mostly gone but the beer aged quite good overall. Very pleasant mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation.

scirtes (174) - POLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle, batch 690. Beer is black with beige, long lasting, creamy head. Very nice lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, some dried fruits, raisins, plums, only some hints of smoked malts (?). Sweet with some bitterness. texture somewhat oily. I can’t feel hops aromas, but the beer is not a very fresh one (brewed 27.11.13, bb 27.05.2015). Would never say this is black IPA, nevertheless a great beer, worth trying.

Almost black with a light brown head that ends in an island. Sicky thick lacing. Aroma is dry with a faint smoky apperance and some sourness. Taste burned dark malt, bozze, bread, caramell, cold coffee and a little smoke. Aftertaste of bitter malts, no hops?

StilleStorm (1116) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2014
DWG; Bottle 500ml. Batch 690. Pours dark brown with a large, creamy, tan, forever lasting, leaving lacing, beautiful head. Nose fills with smoked, roasted malt, caramel, bacon and dark, dried fruit. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, umami, spicy and smoking lasting. Body is medium, texture is oily to creamy, carbonation is soft. Enjoyed with dates and bacon. Great beer, disappointing palate.
