Who on earth would go out for a walk in the middle of the storm? Ando on top of that, all the streetlamps have gone out. A car illuminates that alley and, for a second, you have seen two eyes sparkling. You give some thought to it. You don’t know what is dragging you , what is calling you. You go in. Tinxto.

Pedrens (104) - SPAIN - FEB 26, 2015
botella 33 cl. a medias con Marta. Negra, espuma marron de media formacion y baja retención. Aromas muy frescos, herbales, florales que se van volviendo algo mas citrico y maltoso al calentar. En boca es cremosa/fina, carbonatacion baja/media...de primeras el lupulo te da bien con su parte herbacea, floral y citrica, pomelo, depues aparecen las maltas tostadas pero bastante suaves, el cafe gana al chocolate, y termina con un buen amargor lupulo malta, bastante reisnoso y un poco astringente. El alcohol bien camuflado. Me ha gustado y es buan birra, pero me molaria más con un poco mas de torrefacto y menos de lupulo...un pelin descompensada para mi gusto...o no?? jajaja cada birra es lo que es!!!creo que segun se sirve y con los ojos cerrados podrias decir que es una IIPA, no Black.

Pours a jet black color with brown head. Tropical fruits, coffee, pine, chocolate, caramel and herbs in both aroma and flavour. Kicking bitterness on the aftertaste, with a great coffee presence. Flabbergasting!

jan23778 (116) - Sant Antoni De Vilamajor, SPAIN - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a dark black with a lasting tan head. Aroma completely unexpected, the colour suggested dark coffee or chocolate but the aroma is completely of tropical fruit. Smooth beer for it’s alcohol content, you get a hit of mango and pineapple quickly followed by a liquorice background which i didn’t feel complemented the tropical fruit much but wasn’t unleasant. Something quite different, a pleasant surprise for all senses.

venom666 (476) - Elche, SPAIN - FEB 2, 2015
Jet black color with rich beaige head. Aroma is a hop explosion, full of pine, citrus, tropical fruits and floral hints, with a good coffee and roasted malts background. Medium body. Taste follows the aroma, very hoppy, fruity, piney, renisy and floral, with coffee beans, dark chocolate and liquorice as well, with a marked bitter aftertaste. CDA that moves toward the IPA area, maybe a bit unbalanced, but extremely tasty.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
In short: A crisp citrusy Black IPA of superior quality.
How: Tap at Drunk Monk, Mataró, Spain. (later tap at Never Stop, San Sebastian Spain, then some bottles)
The look: Black body topped by a persistent small beige head leaving a lot of sticky lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is bright citrusy hops with mild roasty-tobacco notes, almost smells like a regular IPA. In mouth the beer has a medium body and appropriate medium carbonation, an ok standard mouthfeel. Taste starts with some blackened malts, a little sip of black coffee, a little black stuff sweetness (molasses, black liquorice). This solid malt backbone is met with force by a solid hopping of fresh citrusy hops., After-taste of roast and grapefruits. Nothing original here but the flavors are bright, the beer is very crisp, this is a superior Black IPA. For those about to brew Back in Black, I salute you.

gunnar (5975) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours almost clear dark ruby with a tiny white head. Lovely light roasted caramel aroma. Taste is the same, light roasted malts, with a firm light salty liquorice body, more than pleasant, high carbonation level, dryy lingering finish, lovely beer.
