Imperial Black IPA. Deep within the dark malty complexity live the hops. Palate cleansing up front intensity chased by citrus, pine, BlackBerry and spice. Porter by appearance. IPA by attitude.

Zywica, nieco cytrusow. W smaku wytrawne, ani sladu ciemnych slodow. Zywiczne. Szlachetna goryczka.

castor010 (159) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Piwo jak niemal jak typowe Imperial IPA, z tą niewielką różnicą, że gdzieś tam, daleko przebija się nieco palony smak i aromat. Ponad to, standard - ładny aromat chmielowy i nieco słodowy. Wyraźna, acz nie przesadzona goryczka z lekką kontrą słodową.

Estebanik (753) - Lublin, POLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Trwała piana, gęsto zdobi szkło. Aromat żywiczny, sosnowy. W smaku czekoladowe wafelki, troche palonosci przelamane dominującą nutą sosnowego chmielu. Po momentami minimalnie alkoholowej goryczce, wchodzi posmak w stylu gorzkiej czekolady. Dość wysoko nasycone. Smaczna BIPA, z tym, że nic nie urwała.

Batavi (353) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2016
Geproefd bij de Vinotake tijdens de IPA/Sour tasting. Nu een Black IPA uit Schotland. Uitgeschonken in een Struise BD proefglas. Schenkt bijna gitzwart uit, met een lichtbruine schuimkraag. Mooie aroma’s van koffie, pure chocolade, met de hop mooi aanwezig in de aroma’s van pijnboom en tropisch fruit. Het smaakpallet is vol van koffie, gebrande karamel, mokka, met een mooie hop balans van pijnboom en tropische vruchten, zwarte bessen en iets van zoethout. Bitter, maar ook bloemig door de hop. Blijft een interessante stijl, Black IPA. Deze kan zich meten met de landgenoten van Brewdog, een mooi bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1920) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 4, 2016
330ml bottle @Les Vignerons (Rome). Pours deep brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma of hops and roasted malts, balanced. Flavour is medium roasted malty and hoppy, medium bitterness. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Ok.

Mid way between a stout and an IPA. Taste roasted malt and hops. Quite good and unusual.

Near perfect balance in the aromas and taste. Some might find it leans a bit to the IPA side but summer’s nearly here so why not.

A colablack beer, a head is quite small and beige. Aroma has citrusfruits, coffee, roastiness and some tropical notes. Taste has citrusfruits, wood, some coffee. Medium bodied. Balanced beer, I would prefer more fruitness.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 26, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks Stas. Dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma of roast, licorice, piney hops, some coffee. Roasty flavor, quite dry, with roast, a bit of licorice, a bit of coffee, and bitter piney hops. Medium-bodied. A decent Black IPA.

danlo (2550) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2016
330ml bottle from Alesela. Pours a black-brown colour with a beige foamy head leaving lacing. Nose of roast malt, chocolate and resiny citric hop. Taste is roasted, bready malty, with chocolate & coffee, dark fruits and hoppy citrus, grapefruit & pine, tangy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry spicy bitter finish. Very drinkable black IPA.
