Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma of molasses, dark malts, caramel, dark fruits and earthy hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, decent amount of bitter hops and sweet malts. Dark licorice, caramel and a touch of cardamon and cinnamon. Nice in balance, good beer.

Bottled 330ml. -Birthday gift from Maja supported by Ludo from Magic Beer Room. Thanks to both. Almost black coloured, medium sized pale beige head, pleasant and pretty intensive roasty and hoppy nose. Roasted malt, chocolate and hops with moderate strong but balanced alcohol presence. Bitter chocolate finish and long-lasting aftertaste. Really good brew.

Bottle 0,33cl. Pieknie czarne smoliste i pelnia glebia i szczescia. Metne nieprzezroczyste z opalizujaca trwala i spora piana znaczaca na szkle spore mazy. W smaku pelna paleta slodowosc dosc spora i bogactwo slodow. Chmiele wyczuwalne aromatyczne srednio ale w smaku to bomba chmielowo goryczkowa. Imperialne podwojne ciemne IPA zrobilo na mnie spore wrazenie. Polecam to piwo bo fantastycznie sie je pilo, a alkoholu sie wogole nie wyczuwalo, dla niektorych moze byc zbyt ciezkawe.

Piękna długo utrzymująca się piana. W smaku ciemne słody a w drugiej nucie wyraźny chmiel. Alkohol wyczuwalny ale nie nachalny, bardzo dobrze zbalansowana.

zaf (239) - ITALY - APR 27, 2014
ottima black ipa belga..i luppoli belga usati si sentono eccome..c’č molta differenza con black ipa dagli USA..in ogni caso aroma piacevole dove i lieviti si sentono (č comunque una belga!)..scura con schiuma bianca che resiste fino alla fine della degustazione..corposa e dal gusto maltato e ottimamente luppolata..finale lungo ed intenso

seynie (146) - Tienen, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2014
Pitch black with a creamy head. Smells distinctively of hops. Taste is mainly coffee grind and rotated malts but well balanced with some orange peel sweetness. Long hoppy and caramel finish.
