Bottle at Il Serpente pub, Rome. Pours mid brown, much lighter than any other Black IPA I’ve had, with a quite large bubbly off-white head. Aroma of hop, chocolate, malt, citrus fruit, light toasting and slightly nutty. Moderate sweetness, medium plus bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, average to soft carbonation. Pretty good. rumore (869) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 19, 2017

Craft Clerkenwell. Keg. A sample thanks to the Barman. Light haze on this deep gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry, medium fine carbonation. Lactose laden pale malts. Bubblegum esters. Trace of spice. Light dry finish. Black IPA? Never in a month of Sundays! No idea what this is really supposed to be but it’s not good and my gratitude to the barman who saved me from actually spending on this.
