yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, at 42. An unclear brown beer with a small beige head. Lots of piney hops in the aroma, like hop pellets. Citrus peel and roasted malts too. Coffee and some dark chocolate too. Lots of bitterness in the flavor, with roasted malts and coffee. Full body, soft carbonation. Long bitter, piney finish. Wow, I like this. 140215

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Medium brown head. Opaque black body goes hazy dark brown at edges. Earthy roasty resiny aroma with gooseberry and soy sauce notes. Dry-sweet roasty earthy chocolatey taste with toffee, mint and roasted coffee notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy roasty chocolatey aftertaste with orangey minty gooseberry notes. Lovely! Highly drinkable, full of flavour, and very harmonic. A hugely successful marriage of the roasty earthy flavours with minty gooseberry hops. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika.)

Palme (4120) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2014
0.33l bottle. Really deep dark brown in the glass this, tempted to call it licorice black and it has a medium sized quickly fading bubbly and sidesticking light brown top. The nose has wet gunpowder, a little bit of licorice, dark roasted malts and some traces of cold coffee. Non extreme indeed, but nice enough. Would not immediately identify this as a black IPA. More so in the taste. I get zesty bitterness and sweetness, dark cocoa, lots of toast, roasted sweetness. It has a good oily mouthfeel and not much traces of the alcohol. It feels quite balanced this, definitely not way over the board to complex in any way but actually quite tasty. 03.08.2013

[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 (986) - 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 (2418) - 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 (3207) - 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.
