3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From Craftissimo. Drank w Matt after Toritama. Opaque black pour. Light beige head with bubbles and oaty clumps. Lots of dotty streaky lacing. Smells of stone fruit, pear, faint to moderate bitter coffee, cola, lightly spiced roast malt. Taste is lemony somewhat empty hop, moderate plum, moderate bitter coffee, ends on dry astringent note. Body is slick, stony, bitter, fruity fluffy chewy finish. Very good! Taste does not have the coffee and bitterness that the rest of the beer does but still excellent.

Bottle from Craftissimo at home before CNY. Light black/dark dark brown clear pour. Tan foamy head. Aroma is fresh fruity hops with sharp acidic coffee, caramel, some roasted malt. Really nice. Taste is big sharp bitterness - first strong coffee then astringent hops. Good but a bit too harsh even for me - very astringent. Nice lasting coffee hop flavor. Light palate. Good not great.

Bottled 330ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Almost black coloured, medium sized creamy brownish head, mild chocolate and hops in the nose. Slight roasted malt, peachy hoppy, mild chocolate and noticable alcohol with dry bitter finish. Decent BIPA but "something" is missing to be great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Dark brown almost black color with medium head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit with some chocolate, dates and roast. Flavor is very much like aroma profile. Great balance between hops and body: bitter but still sweet. Also great balance between dark malts and hops: hops doesn?t overpower chocolate flavors. Flavorful beast. Medium-full body. Not so dry finish as I expected. Overall: really nice one.
