65cl bottle courtesy of Belgbeergeek @ Belgian RB Gathering of Ultimate Evil. Couleur foncée/noire, col épais crémeux café au lait/moka. Arôme est superbement bien houblonné allant presque vers un poivré/pin et cela tellement le houblon est ici mis en usage. Note en parallèle le malt chocolaté qui contribue à ce style. Palais présente un profile profond de malt laissant des notes chocolatées qui se marient parfaitement avec un profile houblonné épicé presque de piment/poivre, résineux avec un léger citronné pour une amertume en parfaite harmonie avec la base malt. Peut aussi y noter des notes de café, cône de pin, épices, fleuri et chocolat en poudre. Le plus marquant de la bière étant ce côté quasi épicé pimenté qui ne gâche pas l’expérience mais donne une belle dimension et cela à chaque gorgées.

Bedankt Belgbeergeek. 66 cl. fles gedeeld met Belgbeergeek & Sebletitje @ Belgian Ratebeer Winter Gathering of Ultimate Evil. Donker bruin met een kleine mokka kraag. Geur heeft heel veel zwarte peper, redelijk wat kruiden, Amerikaanse hop hars, chili chocolade, pikant met wat chili, fascinerend, komt dicht echt hoor enkel dankzij zonder hop, gemakkelijk de meest interestante en beste Hoppin’ Frog bier tot nu toe. Smaak is zoete chocolade, beetje room vermeng met zwarte peper, kleverig, wat hars maar echt heel hars hoppig is dit ook weer niet, donker fruit, cacao, lichte aardse hop op het einde. Gemakkelijk een van de beste Black IPA’s die ik tot nu toe gehad heb.
