nimbleprop (4998) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2013
4oz sample at Max’s Hop Fest 2013. Pours a hazy, mahogany amber with some creamy, white head. Nose of sweet tarts, soap, pine, medicinal. Flavor is very astringent, very soapy, pine. Full, soapy finish.

Iphonephan (3354) - McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
On draft at Churchkey DC. Pours black with a massive tan head that slowly recedes leaving lots of lacing. Somewhat sour nose. Flavors of cocoa, tobacco, and grass. Bitter finish.

Pitch black in colour, almost black foam. A bit hoppy but a lot of licorice and a nice sweetness makes this ber quite well balanced though the high alcohol level

Australian galaxy hops thumps you in the mouth. This beautiful black ipa also holds a big heavy malt backbone pours black as a pirates heart with brown head. On tap.

Pretty intense dark beer. Thick foamy head, dark body, richly malted, strongly hoppy too.

Kosmokrator (495) - ITALY - JUN 16, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Intenso color bruno-rossastro con soffice velo di schiuma beige. Sentori di luppolo e frutti rossi (ciliegie in primis), accoppiata che viene riproposta nel gusto con note di caramello, luppolo, frutta sciroppata e malti torrefatti. Incredibile equilibrio complessivo nonostante le sfumature molto diverse, corpo medio, struttura oleoso-setosa, effervescenza gentile, finale asciutto... Incredibile e dissetante!!

McNeillR (1242) - SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Dark brown body, ringed retention head. Mellow roast, pieney and pruney nose. Swells of vibrant tart unexpected so early on. Light wholemeal toastedness comes through before any smooth hops in a buttery mouthfeel. Slight sour towards the finish gives the impression this could have been more impressive than it finished on. Although with more balance I doubt it would’ve played out the same.

Keg at The Bat. Looks the part for sure. Lots of coffee and dark fruits on the nose. Taste follows this, but with something slightly sour, and roasted. bitter finish. Not bad, but wouldn’t have again.

fiammanghilla (627) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 3, 2013
Bottiglia 75cl. Nera con schiuma marroncina fina e molto persistente. Si sente molto il tostato del malto poi arriva il luppolo, amaro e fruttato. Finale ancora con amarezza e un po’ di caffè. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iFox
