Draught, 23 Club, Liverpool. Dark brown looks with a smallish tan head. Piney hop, citrus, choc and a hint of roast present in the beak. A similar yarn unfolded in the sweetish flavour with some very tidy hop bitterness. Extremely drinkable and moreish. Great stuff. Meow.

330ml bottle from The Wine Emporium 231213. Easy drinking this one, gives down well and doesn’t strip your palate. Nice and hoppy.

first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out. surprisingly, the beer isn’t black, but dark-brown - but I think it can be the case with CDAs. the best thing about this beer is the aroma, hoppy, with lots of esters, it comes out really nice. the taste is also very hoppy - not only in bitterness, which is quite high but very noble and short, but also in the taste as such. It’s really enjoyable. foam is nice, too. drawbacks? a bit too thin, I think it would be better with a slightly more ’full’ body. a bit soury too, but it’s not a problem for me - it’s got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me it’s great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma.

Piwo ma barwę rubinowo-brunatną, piana tworzy się z łatwością, ładnie zdobi szkło i redukuje się do cienkiej warstewki. Po otwarciu butelki nasze nozdrza od razu atakuje chmiel. W głównej mierze mamy cytrusy, ale takie zielone, niedojrzałe, wyczuć można też trochę żywicy. W tle delikatne muśnięcie słodów, kojarzące się z ciemnym słodkim pieczywem. W smaku piwo jest niezwykle fajnie ułożone. Goryczka pojawia się już na początku i powoli wzrasta do poziomu średnio-wysokiego. Wyraźnie czuć cytrusy w postaci cytryn i limonki, a w tle lekki karmel, z tymże jakby trochę przypalony. Ale typowych nut od słodów ciemnych w tym piwie nie uświadczymy. W ustach po każdym łyku pozostaje posmak gryzionego albedo grejpfruta. Piwo niezwykle szybko znika ze szkła.

Ambra scuro con buona schiuma beige molto fine. Grande aroma di liquirizia, agrumi, luppolo. La bevuta scorre benissimo con malto e note tostate, segue un bel sapore luppolato. Molto bene la carbonazione. Ottima Black più ipa che Black.

cardofab (235) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - MAR 17, 2012
Colore marrone tobido, schiuma infinita non compatta ma durevole, al naso è veramente notevole con note di luppolo e malto tostato, leggermente fruttata e resinosa. In bocca è equilibrata, amara e ben luppolata con note leggermente resinose e tostate. Ottima.

Draught at Eataly, Bologna
Black color, or very dark mahogany, with creamy head. Very nice hoppy aroma, still fruity, with some caramel. Mild flavor of roasted malt, with good hopping; the body structure is good, but getting drier at the end.
Fresh and very good, more balanced that most other beers in the style.
