God ubestemmelig lukt. Frisk fruktig smak. Et godt lettdrukket mørkt øl. Mye bedre enn navnet skulle tilsi.

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.

Ungstrup (29287) - 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 (1939) - 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 (6833) - 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.

humlelala (984) - DENMARK - APR 11, 2013
(on tap @ Exmouth Arms) Pours pitch black with creamy, tan head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma contains notes of roasted malt and a surprising hoppy fruitiness that does however seem to give way to the malt as it warms. Creamy texture, full body, soft carbonation and a roasted, hoppy finish. Taste is mildly bitter from the hops mostly. Quite tasty and pleasant.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Keg at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours clear, deep brown with a small, creamy tan cap. Loads of well toasted pine in the nose, burnt toast, some earth. Medium sweet flavor with heavy burnt bread, bitter burnt pine, some baking cocoa, burnt grass, some minerals. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Resinous, sticky burnt pine to finish, further burnt toasty bread, some earth, subtle grapefruit, some minerals. Pretty tasty overall, if a bit ballsy.
