3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cerveza negra de buena formación de espuma y estabilidad. En aroma destaca a partes iguales la malta tostada con notas de café y los lúpulos terrosos y resinosos. En el sabor la malta destaca más que el lúpulo que tiende a desaparecer hasta tomar protagonismo nuevamente al final del trago. Su retrogusto es seco, levemente astringente. Cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación. (Botella, 330 ml)

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled from biernavigatie, BB 12/2014, large sample, served in a shaker. Slight hazy dark redbrown color with a huge frothy light brown head, leaving some unstable lacing. Aroma of some roasted malts, some caramel, fruity hop, pine, some grapefruit, slight candy, dark bread. Quite bitter in taste, piney, slight licorice and roast. Quite some maltiness in this black IPA. Slight alcohol in the finish, bit harsh. Feels a bit unbalanced. Quite high on carbonation, thin body. Good thing is, the beers from t IJ are much cleaner than they used to be, so I should actually rerate a lot of their beers.

9th May 2014
Leighton 10K tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy and a little dry. Very mild airy dark malts, touch of roast and a whisper of cream. Light piney hops with mild floral bitterness. Light finish. Not bad but needs more backbone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared during Black IPA night in London - big thanks to K-Bird. Pours clear, deep brown with a thick, frothy beige head. The aroma holds dry cocoa, burnt wood, moderate roast, earth. Light to medium sweet flavor with bitter scorched earth, baking cocoa, mild burnt meat, toasted pine. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. More earthy bitterness to finish, some bittersweet chocolate, mellow alcohol, lasting roast, charred wood. Slow starter but strong finisher. Good beer.
