Dark ruby brown color. Average level of carbonation. Aromas of cinnamon, dark caramel, chocolate, a bit of hops. Light body. Dark herbal hop bite, very roasty, in a good way. Coffee. I liked it, but probably won’t buy it again.

mR_fr0g (9555) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle picked up at the brewery bottle shop. At the campsite in bologna. A dark brown black coloured pour with a lasting dark tan frothy. Aroma is jammy fruit, berries, burnt pine needle, soft charred roasted malts. Flavour is composed of bitter roasted malts, charred wood, burnt pine and earth. Jammy fruits. Palate is medium bodied, highish carbonation. Lingering big bold bitter roast and hop. Good.

ignorant (102) - madrid, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2016
Dark ebony, with abundant fine and persistent slightly brownish foam. Nose citrus scent in the foreground, especially grapefruit, and then a touch of pine needles and coffee. fresh, clean and elegant aroma. Feeling somewhat oily, smooth and round mouth, with initial notes of toast and then sweet grapefruit pulp with a lightweight notes of coffee and chocolate. final fall to the bitterness of an IPA dry cutting with the presence of resin and grapefruit zest. fragrant, very clean and very easy to drink beer. Stylistically halfway between a black and a hoppy stout Ipa. Body and medium carbonation.

venom666 (874) - Elche, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2016
Pours a black color with brown notes and medium beige head with great retention. Nice aroma, pine, grapefruit, grass, roasted malts, coffee and resin. Taste is intense, very IPA-ish, citrusy, piney, grassy and grapefruity, good roasted malt and chocolaty/cofee back-end. Finishes with a strong bitterness on the aftertaste.

Bottiglia 33cl. Nera con schiuma beige, aroma fantastico di malto torrefatto, pino, note agrumate. Ottima al palato con malto, luppolo, sentori di cacao nel finale che rimane comunque asciutto. Bassa carbonazione, dote perfetta per il genere.
