Di colore nero, buon cappello di schiuma color nocciola. Al naso è un infuso di luppolo che copre parzialmente gli aromi dei malti tostati. In bocca si percepisce il roasted, il cacao amaro, il caffè. Finale intenso lunghissimo. A mio parere supera i parametri dello stile Black IPA.

Keg. Jet black with a few ruby hints and a thin light tan head. Nose is a hint of coffee and blackberries. Taste is interesting. First blackberry, then coffee and milkshake, then finally a dryness and a hit of bitter grapefruit. A bit of a taste rollercoaster. If the finish wasn't so harsh, is enjoy this a bit more.

Gorm (1103) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2013
Svart med lite skum. Røstet maltlukt. Velbalansert smak av kaffe og sjokolade. Litt bitter ettersmak. Melkebaren.

nilsas (1223) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2013
God ubestemmelig lukt. Frisk fruktig smak. Et godt lettdrukket mørkt øl. Mye bedre enn navnet skulle tilsi.

berntholer (801) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2013
light coffee coloured head and coffee coloured beer. slight burnt smell with some cat pee. bitter, sour and hoppy taste. mediocre bland aftertaste almost no carbonation and very flat (perhaps because it’s coming from handpump/draft?).draft @ la tape / notes from backlog

Znakomite, Wloska innowacja tworcza nie ma granic. Wspaniale czarne piwo z intensywnym czekoladowo-chmielnym aromacie. Wielka brązowa piana utrzymująca sie sporo czasu. Piwo w smaku czekoladowe gozkie i ciezkie. Finisz jak najbardziej chmielowy.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2013
Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Black color, massive brown head with great retention and solid lacing. Aroma is dark and roastay. Taste is slightly sour coffee and dark fruits. Very nice.

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 18, 2013
Draft. A dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of hops, citrus fruits, flowers, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.

Davros (1869) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2013
Pours black with brown tints and a small head. Nose shows roasted malt, chocolate and piny, fruity hops. Restrained but nice. Very rusty flavours with some coffee notes. Some of theirs hops remain. A bit plain. Body feels a bit watery.

Scopey (6266) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013
Keg at Earl of Essex. It pours near black with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, bitter-sweet, liquorice, dark fruit, blackcurrant jam and crackers. The taste is scortched earth, roasted malt, toast, pepper, ash, charcoal and some astringency with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent black IPA, but not overly drinkable.
