gnoff (9569) - Mölndal, - JUL 27, 2012
Draught at The Rover, Göteborg, on July 26, 2012
Very dark brown to black color, thick dense light brown head. Dominating citrus fresh hops scent. Hoppy, bitter, citrus taste. Dry, bitter, pine, citrus, chalk aftertaste. Medium to spritzy mouthfeel, high bitterness. Lasting bitterness that linger.
Personally it would have been even better with hints of roasted malt coming through in both scent and taste, not overly bitter, not too hopped, enjoyable and nice.

Gurthnar (4986) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 21, 2016
Tap at Salon piva. Great CDA, really intense hoppiness and bitterness, but at the same time some deep roasted notes, just how I like it.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Musta olut todella paksulla beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu todella voimakas, sitruksinen, greippinen ja kukkainen sekä havuinen/mäntyinen. Samalla hieman hajuvesimäinen. Maussa suklaata, greippiä ja katkeroa loppupuolella. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Jälkimaku vahvan greippinen, ainoa asia joka laskee pisteitä.

Echon (366) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2016
Black. Rich, complex hops and roasted malt in both aroma and flavour, with notes of citrus, pine, spice and liquorice. Moderately sweet taste with a highly bitter finish. Full body with a smooth texture. Overall, a great black IPA. Very tasty. I really prefer malty IPAs with a balanced sweetness.

Szopeen (322) - POLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Barwa ciemno brązowa wpadająca w czerń, bujna czapa kremowej piany, tworząca koronkę na szkle. Intensywny aromat cytrusów i owoców tropikalnych z nutą czekolady. W smaku kawa i czekolada, żywiczna, średnio wysoka goryczka.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Jan. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured hazy brown, almost black body with medium sized beige head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, cacao and sharp herbal hops. Flavor was bitter, dry herbal with roasted malt like coffee and licorice. Lightly salty. Fine but seemed unfinished and too simple. Full body with longer dry finish. Didn’t impress me with its plain dry bitterness and overall simplicity, but it was a very fine, fresh and very effective brew despite that. Far from the top notch for me though.

Fules (786) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 30, 2016
Hatalmas, nagyon tartós, bézs hab, fekete szín. Illata fekete csokis, némi kávés vonással. Pörkölt malátás, feketecsokis, némi kávéval, markáns narancshéjas, citrusos aromával. Kicsit édes, alacsony szénsavtartalmú, testes, selymes, tökéletes összhangú ital. Nagy sör.
