Byli jsme první, kdo IBA v ČR uvařil. V Anglii byla Černá Raketa vyhlášena Darrenem Turpinem vítězem v kategorii BEST OVERSEAS DRAUGHT BEER při jeho degustační soutěži GOLDEN PINT AWARDS 2010 – MY SELECTION. Tak to nás potěšilo.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2014 Bottle 75cl. Žatec. Nice dark color. The aroma has notes of hops, citrus, fruit, and a bit of roasted malt.

Bottle. Aroma of caramel, hops and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, kinda sweetish and citrushops at the very end, providing a (slightly too) bitter ending. I was wondering if this was supposed to be a stout while drinking it. It´s ok, but I´m not as fond of it as with the other Matuska beers.

CanCrusher (643) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 14, 2014
0,50L on tap at Pivarium Zelena Kočka and bottle 0,75L at home. Dark, ruby brown colour with large, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of pine, juniper, grass, herbs, light citruses, black coffee and some smoke. Taste starts light acidic, followed by lemon and caramel, while the finish is medium bitter. Full body, oily (and dry) texture, soft carbonation. This beer is good and needs better label, becouse this one looks boring. At least they should put rocket on it...Actually, all Matuska labels looks boring.

Výčap Richtár Jakub. Čierna farba a bledo hnedá krémová pena. Vôňa kakaová, horká čokoláda, sladké drievko, jemne chmeľ. V chuti na začiatku zľahka sladkosť, neskôr karamel, horká čokoláda a silná chmeľová horkosť. Telo husté, suché. Veľmi príjemné pivo.

From a bottle. Very nicely hopped IBA, both aroma and taste combine citruses with some spices (cloves?) Will definitelly try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

07.04.2014, 0,75l bottle @ BBGTC tasting:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is very mild, dark malts, dark fruits, burnt caramel, roasted grain, hay, hints of coffee. Taste is slightly sweet roasted, dark malts, sugar, hay, grain, caramel, cereal, toast. Medium bitterness, slightly watery mouthfeel. Fair enough.

ClubGonzo (4047) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 7, 2014
Bottle from Pivoteka Beergeek, Prague, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a medium creamy light beige head. Nose is caramel, mild chocolate tones, grass and hints of wet leaves. Taste is mild grass, chocolate, grains, caramel, hints of roasted bread, wet leaves and herbs. Medium to full body and carbonation. A bit low on hops, but otherwise a pretty decent BIPA.

Quack-Duck (7944) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 1, 2014
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.

Karol (642) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 4, 2014
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!
