3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
ottima black ipa belga..i luppoli belga usati si sentono eccome..c’è molta differenza con black ipa dagli USA..in ogni caso aroma piacevole dove i lieviti si sentono (è 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

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: complex roasted and burned notes, grassy hop, cacao beans, roasted hazelnuts.
Taste: Sweet with light to moderate spicy bitterness.
Slightly oily aftertaste with some yeasts, spice herbs, some dry fuits, some coffee.
Alcohol is very light.
Overall this looks like a belgian-style stout with beligan yeasts and grassy hops (what is slightly unusual for this style).

Bottle from Hippo Beers. Dark brown body with a large beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of Coca-Cola, coffee grounds, fig and Marmite. Flavour of earthy hops, raisin, pine and plum. Quite boozy. Medium body with a smooth texture. Light fizz. An unusual, tasty beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark brown with a decent beige head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt with some herbal hops. Taste similar, sweet caramel and lots of chocolate to roasted coffee/charcoal and a bitter dry spicy herbal finish with maybe a touch of pine. Bit of alcohol heat. Medium to full bodied. Not as strong in the hops and bitterness as some BIPAs but still very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is very dark brown, pretty much opaque, a big, fluffy beige head which persists. Aroma- lots of hops, orange, marmalade, coffee, roast malt, fruity. Smells good. Taste- coffee, orange, milk chocolate, toast with marmalade, hints of burnt treacle, hops, pine, hint of lime juice, bitter finish. This is very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2015 BOTTLE 33 CL. The aroma starts with black malts and coffee beans, but the hops push them out. The hop aroma is bright „German”, intense grassy, lemongrass, astringent unripe fruit. Some smelly soft cheese rind too (yeast?). The taste is right in the middle between a stout (roasty, light chocolate-like sweetness) and an IPA (hoppy) with a strong spicy and grassy bitterness. A Black IPA that stands a little apart - no american hops, and the yeast is not American either.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cerveza extraña con toques amargos y dulces a la vez y con un sabor herbal bastante presente. Se deja beber y no parece que tenga los grados que tiene, pero si tengo otra opción, no repetiría a pesar de las buenas críticas que tenía.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Clear dark reddish brown with big dense light tan head. Lovely complex aroma with chocolate, coffee, pine, pineapple, toffee and some interesting yeast notes. Medium to full bodied with lovely creamy soft carbonation. Excellent taste too: chocolate, coffee, toffee at the start with tangy fruity balancing notes developing in the mid palate which slide gently into a pleasant assertive crisp bitterness for a long finish. A great beer.
