Przylus (378) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Aromat - wyraźnie cytrusowo-tropikalne z kawowo-czekoladowym tłem. Dużo mango, marakui, różowe grejpfruty. Trochę mniej, ale i tak wyraźna czekolada deserowa i minimalne akcenty słodkiej kawy. Barwa czarna nieprzejrzyste. Niesamowita piana. Drobna, beżowa, wręcz azotowa, bardzo wysoka, sztywna, obfita, długa. Jest nawet efekt lawy, jak po nalaniu z pompy. W smaku zaskoczenie - odwrócenie akcentów! Dużo czarnej kawy, sporo gorzkiej czekolady, śliwki i wiśnie w czekoladzie, praliny. Jest też trochę świeżego tła: tropiki, cytrusy, łodygowość. Alkohol (9,9%(!)) nieźle ukryty, ale wyczuwalny w przełyku. Fajna, kawowa goryczka.

Piwo jest czarne, nieprzejrzyste z bardzo piękna pianą. Aromat nie jest intensywny, ale bardzo złożony. Wyraźne zapachy żywiczno-sosnowe i słodkich cytrusów. W tle kawa i gorzka czekolada. Spod tego wszystkiego subtelnie pojawia się alkohol. Smak to na początku gorzka czekolada (nie z tych 100% kakao) i ponownie kawa. Następnie pojawiają się żywiczno-sosnowe nuty chmielu. Finisz to wyraźna i mocna chmielowa goryczka, a po ogrzaniu lekko alkoholowa - rozgrzewająca gardło. Każdy łyk pozostawia bardzo przyjemny posmak mocnej kawy espresso. Piwo jest bardzo pełne i gęste, wręcz oleiste.

Great coffee presence. TOØL has this style down pat. Great smell. Great bitterness taste. It's a ballsy beer with a great nose and good mouthfeel. The price is bad. $10.99 for a 12oz. bottle! Great for a coffee beer but there is better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love a good black IPA and this certainly is one. Smokey grapefruit bitterness (if that makes sense) with plenty of coffee thrown in. Strong stuff.

Gift from Marcus. Pours very dark brown with no head. Aroma of dark malt, coffee, and strangely floral perfumes. Full body or nearly. Flavor is dark malt, some odd, and firm, perfume/floral flavors, and hints of coffee. No chocolate that I can discern. And then I can discern. There’s a strange mouth impact that suggests very, very mild wintergreen. This is strange and invigorating flavor profile. I lack the words to describe.Quite pleasing tho.

330 ml bottle @ Haandverkerstuene May 2014. Dark brown, almost black body with a nice, dense brown head. Wonderful aroma with dark, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, lots of citric fruit and grapefruit. Flavor is sweet, dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, citric fruit, grapefruit and nice bitterness. Fine body and a long lasting, pleasant aftertaste with sweet roasted malt and fruity bitterhops. Nice one.
