COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra ispirata allo stile American Style Black Ale (Black IPA), prodotta artigianalmente utilizzando acqua, malto dorzo, luppolo e lievito. Dal colore nero quasi impenetrabile con qualche riflesso granata, si presenta con un bel cappello di schiuma compatta e persistente. Aromi e sapori si intrecciano nelle componenti maltate e nella generosa luppolatura con variet americane. Il dry hopping effettuato con l Hoptimator, strumento progettato dal team del birrificio, dona alla birra un carattere fresco ed intenso di luppolo. Secca e beverina, nonostante i suoi 7,5 gradi alcolici, Castigamatt il lato oscuro del luppolo.

Ottima questa Black IPA, decisamente + IPA che Black...aroma di pompelmo ben percettibile, aghi di pino e leggero tostato...forse non proprio un esempio dello stile in causa ma sempre unottima bevuta

john44 (3000) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Bottle. Bought Dec 2015; BBE July 2016; Drank Apr 2016 - Dark Reddish Brown in colour (Ruby against light). Large rocky tan head. Excellent lacing. Malty; roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, liquorice notes, caramel. Fruity; grapefruit citrus. Hoppy; piney hops. Nice malt/fruit/hop balance. Sweet-bitter roasty chocolate coffee malty fruity and piney hoppy. Dry into the finish. Im not a big fan of the BIPA style but this was a good well balanced Black IPA! (2016-04-18)

Diabobale (493) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 23, 2016
Color ebano scuro con riflessi ambrati e una schiuma beige non abbondante ma creposa e discretamente persistente. Al naso terroso, erbaceo e citrico coprono il lieve tostato. In bocca entra amara ma poi lascia spazio a polpa darancia e sul finale ad un leggero resinoso. Corpo vellutato con carbonazione medio bassa.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost opaque with medium, long lasting, beige head and nice lacing.Aromas of citrus, hops on malty background, nice but could be stronger. Medium body, alcohol well hidden, right bitterness with little bit sweet finish and very pleasant mouth feel. Good stuff!

Zlotta (2928) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2016
Sampled from tap at Craft & Draft. Clear, very dark red with a light brown head. Sweetish, roasty and slightly resiny aroma of dark chocolate, some coffee, mango and pine. Sweetish, fruity-resiny and moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, some coffee, hazelnut, mango and pine, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter, resiny finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Nice!

Van de tap bij hoppy days in Amsterdam zwart met een creme kraag. Zit meer in het zuur dan in het bitter met wat koffie en citrus tonen. Niet verkeerd.
