realmente sorprendente, una ipa con un toque tostado que hace del todo el conjunto una muy buena cerveza

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Appearance: black, clear with a medium sized and rather quickly dropping light tan head that leaves great lacing on the glass.
Aroma: very hoppy, resinous, citrus, with a little bit of roastiness. Notes of caramel and coffee are in the back, very subtle.
Taste: tastes almost like a regular IPA at first. It’s pretty hoppy, citrusy, there’s pine, resin, some sweet notes and then comes the roastiness. So this is basically how a beer in this style shoud taste. In many Black IPAs the roastiness is too big, here it’s on almost perfect level. Medium to high, long lasting bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium to soft carbonation.
Overall: I really enjoyed this one. It’s a light, highly drinkable beer with great hoppy aroma, nice, almost pure IPA-ish taste with just a hint of roastiness. This one is one of the best beers in this style that I’ve ever had. Highly recommended!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Awesome aroma, hops, coffee roasted malts and chocolate all mingle into one to produce a nice sweet aroma. Bitter sweet and smooth. Finnish has a nutty component just slightly. Very sessionable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Ale&Hop in Barcelona.
It pours brown and gets black in the glass.
Floral and fruity aromas coming out form the creamy beige foam, which persists in the glass. Roasty and coffee palate and a bitter ending that persists in the aftertaste.
