COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jack Hammer has been single handedly ripping it up for quite some time. Now this IPA, has spawned four hammer head off-springs. Black Hammer is the second of our super-charge hyped up hybrids.

Dark malt and American hops unite to bring a new age of bitterness. Pithy grapefruit and resin combine with a dark chocolate and roasty coffee hit to deliver a resonating bitterness that goes beyond IBUs.

Can of 33cl, in a Tumblker glass; from the fridge. Why a so low overall (8/20) ? Because, yes it’s a good beer, stouty one, but clearly not a Black IPA. We are more in front of a stout beer, with her dark brown colour and milky coffee head. Aroma and taste havre notes of sweetness and chocolate, but the hop is not that present. Go for it, but not a full price.

Can at home. Expired a short time ago but still tastes as when fresh, hop aromas has not been lost. Pours black with a lot of initial head, dissipates very quickly though leaving almost no foam. Aroma is more on the malts’ side, a lot of roastiness coming through. Quite a bit coffee, some chocolate and licorice, pine and a herbal earthiness from the hops, not a lot of fruit. Light to medium body. Flavour: fruity at first, followed by bitterness and pine, finishes roasty and warming. Definitely some grapefruit, chocolate, some coffee. Nice balance of maltiness and hoppiness, also not too intensely piney. Finish is a very nice mix of dark malts and the herbal earthiness from the hops (I’m just guessing Mosaic here) and a lot of bitterness. Excellent!

Can, [email protected], Kolding. Pours deep opaque black with a medium, staying creamy beige head. Aroma has roasted malts, light licorice, citrus hops, a bit of chocolate, light grapefruit. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet roasted malts, some licorice, citrus hops, soft but firm bitterness. Nice and dine hoppy bitter black ipa.

Piwo ciemnobrunatne. Piana ładna, trwała, lepi szkło. W aromacie owoce cytrusowe, tropikalne, w tle palność i słonecznik. W smaku fajna goryczka cytrusowa, w tle palność. Wytrawne. Wysycenie niskie. Świetne piwo. Niemal nie czuć, że to Black....

dunklermessias (272) - GERMANY - JUN 9, 2017
330 ml can. Pours with a deep, black color and a nice tan head. First impression of fat, roasted malts. Followed by fruity aromas with a nice grapefruit-peel and hoppy note. Taste is quiet good: lots of roated malts, citrus and a nice touch which reminds me of barrel-aging. Long lasting finish with coffee and dried fruits. Good balanced.

ardeo (494) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2017
Can. 330ml. Belle bière foncée à quelques reflets, mousse beige stable, fines bulles. Nez : herbes, résineux, chocolat, épices : des houblons en pagaille. Bouche : fraîche et légèrement piquante aux saveurs rappelant les arômes + fruits secs + raisin et une moyenne amertume. Bonne, pas fantastic !

Gorycz, a nawet rozgoryczenie tą puszką, bardzo przeciętne ipa w wersji czarnej, goryczka dominuje, ale nie ma tu żadnej przygody z piwem, nie warto zawracać podniebienia.
