Douberd (2189) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 9.2% Very deep brown colour on the body, almost black. Huge thick head, about three fingers, brown-ish in colour, with excellent retention and heavy lacing left on the glass. Aroma has lots of roasted malts, some chocolate after the foam has collapsed and a touch of earthy hops. Tastes really good. Roasted malts, vanilla, light hop character with earth and grassy notes, chocolate. Finishes with roasted malts. Alcohol very well hidden.Mildly bitter overall, with long duration. Medium thick body, good carbonation, a bit sticky on the palate. Overall very good!

Aroma is rather nice with resiny notes, vanilla, caramel, biscuits and roastiness. Flavour has licorice, some roastiness, truffles, coffee and resin. Excellent.

Excalibur123 (126) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2013
Color ámbar oscuro casi negro, buena cabeza de espuma beige permaneciendo unos mms; aromas a malta tostada, lúpulo y frutos secos, en boca entrada potente con mucho amargor que desaparece rápidamente, cuerpo medio, notas de café, cerveza compleja; deja un pos gusto un poco seco.

Poured into a Unibroue snifter black with thick creamy tan head. Scent of roasted malt is strong. Taste reflects the aroma. Roasted toasted malt with a slight amount of dark fruit & definite coffee. Bitter hops finish slight smoke. Nicely carbonated & an overall great feel to the mouth. More dry than I like in a black IPA but the flavor is definitely there.

Per essere una imperial black ipa è decisamente poco luppolata. Predomina il torrefatto, con un leggero retrogusto di cioccolata. Forse la ragione sta nel fatto che sono stati usati luppoli belgi invece che luppoli inglesi o americani. Io avrei preferito quelli, ma l’ho apprezzata comunque.

Deep grain on nose, pours a dark brown. Hoppy bitterness against solid dark malty chocolate background. Short, sharp palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
