Bottle, 330 ml from MBR, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with beige head. Roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, dried fruits, light to moderate hoppy bitter finish. Had an acidic note which I don’t think should be there - could be bad bottle.

Hoppy_Luke (1192) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Mocne black IPA o ciemnobrunatnym kolorze i obfitej, beżowej pianie, która pięknie oblepiała szkło. W aromacie przyjemna paloność, gorzka czekolada i nuty kawy. W smaku rewelacja - paloność i czekolada, w głębi cytrusy i kawa. Do tego rozgrzewa przełyk i nie daje poczuć tak dużej zawartości alkoholu. Naprawdę rewelacyjne piwo!
