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.

Botella. Deep dark brown colour, almost black colour. Very hoppy piney roasty malty aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavour has piney fruity hops and roasted malt with licorice and some chocolate to it.

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 (5687) - 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.

Great apperance. Intense black colour with a good browny head. Fresh hop aroma, roasted and coffee. Interesting! Taste is intense, lots of coffee and hops in a perfect blend. High body. Good carbonation. Long and tasteful aftertaste. Great beer!

javiercrasher (179) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 7, 2014
Negra clara, con una colosal capa de espuma marrón de buena retención. Aroma muy suave, floral y tostado, con notas amargas de aire cafetoso. Cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación. En boca mucha presencia del lúpulo y en menor medida torrefacto, con final amargo y seco. El alcohol no se nota. No es muy redonda, pero si lo tuyo es el amargor del tostado y el amargo del lúpulo, esta es tu cerveza … muy punk!!

Habanero (2756) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus and piney notes. Sweet fllavor that ends up more dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A nice black IPA indeed.

andrepintado (1582) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - FEB 23, 2014
33cl bottle thanks to teddybeer. Color is quite dark. Head is medium and nice. Body is quite crispy but also some smoothness in here. Taste is medium to high bitter. Aroma is hoppy, quite roasted, some coffee. This is a nice beer but I’m getting tired of hops...

Solid black IPA, with that nice balance between hops and roasted malt. Liked it.
