bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, - JUN 17, 2011
Pours out a gem, deep black with dense creamy head. Nose is quite restrained, slight spice, light choco & waft of caramel, light citrus acidity. Palate is well rounded & soft, flavours are roasted barley, spiciness & slightly chalky dry finish with a light dusting of milk choco. It’s a nice enough beer but lacks a little complexity & the hops have fallen away somewhere. I reckon this might have been blinding just after it was brewed.

IlGagario (29) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 3, 2016
In bottiglia, a casa. Colore nero profondo con risvolti color cola nel sottotesta. Schiuma da bianca a color caffč, alta e persistente, da soapy a pannosa. Olfatto molto soddisfacente ed intenso di agrumi maturi. Carbonazione da soffice a media. Aroma inizialmente citrico, con evidenza di pompelmo e cedro, ma anche mandarino e mango, nota di caffč lontana che diviene via via piů percettibile con l’aumentare della temperatura. Amaro tostato reso frizzante dagli agrumi. Carattere maltato pronunciato, sovrastato dall’agrume ma in recupero nel dopo beva, con tocco appena setoso alle gonadi. Mouthfeel agrumato con picco amaro e nota brulče smorzata. Finale amaro breve e gentile. Corpo da medio a pieno, struttura da watery a oleosa con a tratti sensazione lattica. Nota alcoolica di chiara avvertenza ma gentilmente smorzata. Nelson Sauvin unico luppolo, qui lega bene le componenti per un prodotto molto armonico. Davvero una ottima black IPA, da manuale.

butelka, warka rozlana 19/11/15. stosunkowo jasne (czyli ciemno brazowe) z ladna, powoli opadajaca i zostajaca na szkle piana. w aromacie dominuje to, co wszyscy nazywaja prazonym slonecznikiem a dla mnie jest zywica sosnowa :) jest palonosc. jest jakas lakowosc. i sa tez ewidentne winogrona jasne. w smaku dosc wytrawne, dosc pelne, nieco popiolowe, z wyrazna ale nie jakas bardzo wysoka goryczka. w posmakach palonosc i winigrona. klasa. i nelson dziala :)

Zwart bier met beige schuimkraag. Geur: amerikaanse hop, geroosterde mout, koffie. Smaak: Bitter-zoet, karamel, chocolade, studentenhaver. Bittere afdronk. Van sommige bieren moet je kunnen zeggen: dit bier is gewoon goed!

olliejobbins (1571) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Had this on tap at the brewery ages ago but rating this from bottle tried yesterday. dark brown appearance - slightly cloudy if held to the light. aroma is funky yeast, hops and fruit. tastes fruity at first followed by dark malts/nuts. nice but didn’t have a kick of hops.

ManVsBeer (6878) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Keg @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Hazy dark brown with a small head. Has a few darker malts, but its tropical fruitiness remains dominant. Fairly strong tasting but not overbearing.
