3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy deep brown, almost black, thin beige head. Roasted malts, caramel, coffee and bitter chocolate there, with some nice hops in the finish, resiny and citrusy. By far not as hoppy as expected, more stout-like.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a huge head. Aroma is loaded with pine and tropical fruits. A tropical fruit taste gives way to a strong, smokey coffee like taste.

Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a pitch black colour, big frothy long lasting off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, with strong notes of herbs and some hay; a little roasty too. Taste is medium to heavy bitter, slightly sweet. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Great "session" bipa!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml can from Ales by Mail at 4.5% ABV.
Dark brown body, with a big, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of citrus, orange, earth, grass, dark chocolate, some coffee.
Taste is quite light bodied, with coffee, earth, citrus, orange, grass, cocoa, wood, some resin.
Light, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty, bitter, dry, with coffee, cocoa, citrus, resin, wood.
Very nice, especially for the ABV. Very hoppy, with enough roastiness and sweetness for a good balance. Light bodied and easy, but fully aromatic. Black Session IPA? Great idea and very well realised.
