3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with even thickish head. Grapefruit, orange rind, toffee, malt in the aroma. Some citrus in the taste with a soft burt bitterness that’s pleasant. Nice palate with medium carbo. A nice beer that’s both tangy and bitter.

Pours black with small tan head. Nose is caramel. Nose is caramel. Aromas are coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and roasted malts. Finish is sweet and sour. Bit that bad, but don't let make me think about a black IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Limited Edition. Bardzo dobre Black IPA. z taka warstwa osadu ze mialem problem wybeltac to. Piwo limitowane z fajna grafika, czarne i to po dolaniu piwa bez osadu. Wiec gestosc niesamowita. Tu w smaku dominowala czekolada deserowo gozka a takze pudding czekoladowy daktyle i sliwki w czekoladzie. Zapach czekoladowo kakaowy. Tresciwe a pod koniec tej czekoladowej uczty slodkawy finisz. Ciekawe na pocztku gozkawe i zdecydowanie wytrawne a na koniec odwritnie. Wspaniale i konkretnie zbalansowane.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark, black, well foamed. Roasty dry chocolate, sweet licorice on nose. Lightish body, coffee espresso roastyness, some chocolate. Well, dark it is, well bittered and dry, but didn’t find much of hops in flavour that I would take as the difference between a dry stout and a black IPA. Ok drink, but not much more.

Again big thanks to quack-duck for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark black, huge head. Malty, shy smokey aroma. Starts mild, more and more intense malty, light earthy-stouty. Light hoppy-dry background. Finish dominated by malty-stouty notes, modest woody. Not bad!
