One of the great surprises of Borefts. 3,5% ABV (the booklet of Borefts stated 4,5%), but enough aroma to be identified as a Black IPA if you don’t know this beer. I really enjoyed it.

Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, tropical fruits, some pine, hint of coffee, hops. Flavour is light sweet with a bitter finish. Body is a bit thin, however this is definitely a pleasant Black IPA. Remarkable, what they accomplished with the low ABV.

Les Trois 8, Paris tap: Pours dark brown with a loose head. Aroma is chocolate and weed. Taste is bitter with roasted malts coming out in force. Very light but pretty damn good.

Flaska från La Cave a Bulles, Paris. Närmast helt svart öl med ett rikligt smutsvitt skum. Det räcker nästan att bara få dofta på ölen, med kaffe, rostad malt, en lätt rökighet och en fruktig humle. Det är av förklarliga skäl (3,5%) tämligen tunt. Jag tänker att vilken fantastisk öl detta hade varit med ytterligare några procent. Jag tänker också att det är rätt trevligt att kunna få sig en BIPA som inte är alltför alkoholig; ibland vill man ju bara ha en god öl utan att det ska susa i huvudet. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, kaffe, mörk choklad och rostad malt. Bra beska. Högst njutbar.

Valeri8 (3) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2014 does not count
Capolavoro assoluto!! MAi bevuta una Black Ipa così, bassa gradazione...molto bassa e, un’esplosione di sapori e un’amarezza proninciata che non è mai banale e ben sposata con il torrefatto. Semplocemente un CAPOLAVORO

On tap at Festibière festival in Gembloux. Very special hoppy and bitter black beer, surprisingly complex for such a low abv. Good stuff!

Bonne amertume, épices, agrumes. Facile à boire sans tomber dans la facilité. Agréable surprise vu le petit % d’alcool.

Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Black body with a big beige head. Roasty aroma with grass, mango, light smoke hints. Thin body, but at 3,5% that’s really no fault. Quite bitter taste, coffee and hops, with a dense grapefruit sting. Dry roasty finish, light fruity. Surprisingly massive in taste considering the strength, it’s not my first go-to-bipa, but for a sessionable one it’s a pearl.
