3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap at Nota Bene Restaurant. Deep brown, almost black, with a creamy beige-brown head. Coffee and hop aroma. Full-bodied, dark malts start with coffee and bitter chocolate and then make way for intensive aromatic hops with loadas of resiny, grassy and fruity flavours. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tapped at hostinec Richtar Jakub in Bratislava. First of all I am no IBA fan. Never been so far. However, the aroma is fantastic! Citrus hoppy aroma combined with a pleasant roasted malt scent. Black color but dark amber when flash lighted. Nice creamy espresso head, stable, longlasting. The taste is ok for me. Citrus flavors combined with dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. I am beginning to like this beer a lot. The dark chocolate and roasted malt finish is not that aggressive as previous IBAs I have drunk.
Overall, this IBA is a pleasant surprise!
