Botdel date: 6/8/2013. color: dark color with airy brown head. nose: malts, bit gazzy, unbalanced, hops (citrus?), think hops are less, or too old? chocolate powder.. taste: smaoked malts, good CO2 (bit too much). hops, hints of fruits, very malty. alcohol gives some punch. bitter and dry, bit spiritzy, long lasting, good MF. Okey black IPA, maybe a bit heavy. ippopotamo36 (2562) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 1, 2014
0,33 bottle from the Hoppy Imp. in Greece, consumed in Kosovo. Production date 19/12/2013, 11 months old. Pours oily black with a very tan tick head, browny and huge. Nose: mild coffee attack, grassy hops, just a hint of caramel in background. Refreshing mouth despite of the age (and style), chicory overall notes very well balanced with the mildness of the roasted malts. Excellent. I guess how is it when fresh.

Bottle bottled 07/08/13. Pour is black with a large foamy head, aroma is toffee, fruity, caramel. Taste is rich malty, toffee, caramel, body is medium, carbonation is gentle. I didn’t realise that it was beyond it’s one year enjoy within date when I bought it, the four hops perhaps aren’t as strong anymore, but it’s still a great beer sir__v (2630) - FRANCE - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle @ home. Color: dark black beer with no carbonation and high brown head. Smell: malt and roasted malt presence with grassy and hoppy nose. Very well balanced nose. Taste : really nice taste, well balanced between malt and hops. Good density on mouth. Small yeast taste and alcohol notes. Really good job. Aftertaste: high coffee taste with good hoppy balance and bitterness. Really nice black IPA, good job - not so easy to drink but a must to try! Very appreciable beer !
