Draught at Eataly, Bolognasunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2012
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.
On tap at Open Balladin. Pours a clear dark brown with an off-white head. Quite hoppy with floral hopiness. Hints of earthy hops. Soft carbonation. Medium body. Long hoppy and floral finish. dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours dark brown but turns black as it pools in the glass with a big off white head. Nose is fresh pine, roasted coffee and ocean spray. Taste is mostly bitter throughout. Light sweetness for balancing. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Medium body with a long aftertaste.

03/06/2012 La Tana (tap). Marroncina, non molto intensa, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, a grana grossolana, abbastanza persistente. Naso splendido, come consuetudine per le creazioni di Leonardo, luppoli e malti tostati si sposano alla perfezione. In bocca è un bel mix di malti tostati e luppoli, con un perfetto equilibrio generale. Corpo un po’ leggerino, carbonazione corretta. Birra magnifica. Jimmythespoon (472) - - JUL 11, 2012

This beer pours a nice black colour with decent lasting white head. The aroma is fresh and full of resiny hops. The flavour is lightly burnt sugar with citrus bitterness. Very enjoyable Italian black IPA. tderoeck (9744) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2012

Clear dark amber to almost brown beer, small off-white irregular head, unstable. Aroma: lots of sweet sugary fruits, syrup, honey, sweet malts. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: some caramel, bit sweet, bitter hops, fruity, ripe peaches. Aftertaste: very bitter, dry, some grapefruit, lemon peel, little spicy, some alcohol coming through. Pretty good beer!
Sample @ DØE. Nice head with good duration. Color is close to black. Aroma and taste are caramel, roast malt, citrus, pine and hops. bhensonb (15251) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tap at Open Baladin Roma. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Very hoppy resin/pine aroma. Med body. Flavor is resin/pine. Smoothly bitter finish. Mild hop burn builds with time. HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with full tan head and heavy lacing. Upfront aroma of citrus, pine needles and fruity Belgian esters. Taste is quite sweet - bready malts, Belgian notes and lots of citrus. Lots of flavour for such a low percentage beer. Lingering citric bitterness. Really solid drop.
