molly75 (300) - (Madrid - España), ITALY - JAN 11, 2014
[ASPETTO] color mogano, schiuma scarsa ma fine, color nocciola, breve persistenza [OLFATTO] chiari profumi torreffati, con note di cacao, cioccolato al latte, un po’ meno di caffè, a cui si sommano i contributi dei luppoli, con sentori di pino, erbali e resinosi. Si accodano profumi alcolici. [GUSTO] ripropone note cioccolatose, liquirizia, compenente caffetata in secondo piano; nella seconda metà della bevuta compaiono le note erbali e sentori resinosi. Finale che lascia una sensazione metallica e salina. [TEXTURE] corpo medio alto, piuttosto densa e cremosa al palato, carbonazione bassa [COMMENTO FINALE] black ipa dopata o imperial stout extra luppolo ?? Tendo più per una variante di imperial stout: il "double" in etichetta di fatto si traduce in un riempimento del corpo, aumentando la densità al palato, ed in una maltosità cioccolatosa più dolce del previsto; come controparte si perdono quelle note più tipicamente torrefatte, bruciacchiate e di caffè, alle quali tenta sopperirire il controbuto della extra luppolatura con amaricanti erbali e resinosi. Effetto coclusivo: luppoli in parte schiacciati dalla dolcezza della extra maltatura che che non permette loro di fornire appieno i tipici toni black ipa/cascade; d’altra parte maltatura che abusa dei toni dolci perdendo la sua natura "burn". Quale sia l’obiettivo del mastro birraio, comunque gran prodotto ed interessante.

Smells like ipa, but looks like brown ale. Stong and quite burned malt, wide palette with coffe, butter, floral accents and some tobacco - very nice and strong hop flavor.

arsol (482) - NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Svart farge med beige skum. Skummet blir liggende med ett tynt lag. Lukter godt humle, stenfrukt og noe salt. Bra fylde og denne har lang bitter ettrsmak. Smaker også godt at denne er på 9 prosent.

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 12, 2013
Botella de 33 cl en el Lúpulo. Color negro con espuma marfil poco persistente. Cuerpo medio. Ligero aroma dulce al principio a pasas, pasando luego a lúpulo verde muy seco. Sabor verde maltoso con amargo final no muy intenso. Cerveza interesante maltosa con amargor de lúpulo verde contenido. Interesante, para volver a repetir sin problema.

k2cr2o7 (66) - SPAIN - DEC 4, 2013
Cerveza IPA (yo no la llamaría Double IPA) negra, espuma prácticamente blanca y ligeramente persistente. Olor a lúpulo fresco, muy agradable. Sabor amargo y final algo maltoso (nada deseable para una cerveza IPA). En mi opinión, el aroma pone altas las expectativas, pero no llega a redondearse.

Lowenbrau (1863) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2013
33cl bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Some weird, cooked vegetables, off hop and herbal aromas. Pours black, nice tan head, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is hoppy herbal, bitter, roasty. Some off flavours. Probably not its prime.

TriggerHappy (55) - Berlin, NORFOLK ISLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Zapach owocowo cytrusowy, w smaku silna paloność z alkoholowym finiszem, goryczka nie nachalna, ale trochę zalegająca.

tfredvik (1031) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2013
Clear, deep brown body with a small, light tan head of decent longevity and good lacing capabilities. The aroma is very strong, sweet and the roasted malty parts and the fruity hoppy elements are in perfect harmony. The malt feels gently roasted with notes of sweet caramel and chocolate. The hops bring overripe tropical fruits and orange. The taste is moderate sweet and heavy bitter, unfortunately the bitterness is a bit sharp and grassy. The strong flavours are also in very good balance, with roasted notes, dark caramel, overripe tropical fruits, resin and grapefruit. The body is full, the texture oily and the carbonation is moderate to soft. A very successful BIPA, even though the mouth doesn’t quite live up to the eyes.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Opaque black beer, good pale cream - tan coloured head. Smooth palate, slightly soft and semi dry. Smooth dark malt with a little malt cream and a touch of licorice. Smooth and mellow pine hops with a nice balance of citric hops. Semi dry finish with a whisper of smoke. Smooth, rich and tasty.
