(Bottle). Fine fragrance and flavor of tropical fruits and flowers floating on a base of dark roasted malt. In the taste also hints of licorice. Dry bitterness in the finish with some fruity notes.

Wow, what an amazing beer. Delicious taste of smoothly roasted malt, coffee, grass, soft fruitiness and a nice countering bitterness. Really good.

Grey brown beer opaque, weak head nice carbonation. Hoppy smell, grapefruit, resin and flowery. Subtle fruitiness, caramel. Light tones of chocolate. Bitter sour with a delicious watery oily finish. Coffee bitterness, chocolate and hoppy resin, peels. Long taste development, fruity without sweeteness.

Bottle. Dark brown colour with a creamy tan had. The aroma has distinct hop notes of grapefruit and lemon, as well as more peach and mango notes. The flavour is hoppy with peach and grapefruit, as well as a nice roast malt character. Good bitterness, slightly creamy. Very good.

caesar (5792) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2014
Bottled from de Molen Beershop mentioning the use of Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial, bottled 05.02.14 BB 05.08.14, large sample, served in a TeKu. Dark brown color, medium light brown head. Aroma is quite hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, blackcurrant, roasted malts, slight candy, bit grassy, slight coffee. Quite bitter in taste, some chewy roast as well. Great balanced black IPA, which goes more towards IPA but with the necessary touch of roast. Lovely stuff.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 25, 2014
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons, served in a nonic half pint glass. Bottled on 05-02-14. Dark brown with some reddish tinges, quite hazy, with a small, bubbly and not very persistent beige head. Roasted and hoppy aroma, notes of freshly burnt coffee beans, bitter dark chocolate, vanilla and liquorice, and then citrusy hops, resin and pine needles. More IPAish than BlackAleish in the mouth, solid and quite high level of bitterness, tiny astringency, lovely and persistent fruity taste. Almost like a chewing on a strawberry and orange candy. Resinous and hoppy aftertaste, not much malty/roasted/chocolaty presence. Soft carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. The nose could be better, but itís probably the best tasting BIPA Iíve ever had so far. Great.
