341ml bottle from Firma-Bier

Bottled 27.4.2015 - Pours pitch black with a thick brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, piney hops, grass, citrus, herbal notes, hints of licorice and chocolate. Taste is roasty, grassy and piney with some hints of licorice, herbal notes, chocolate and coffee. Finish is roasty, earthy and bitter with some herbal grassy hoppiness and licorice. Okay, quite heavy for a black IPA, feels almost like a hoppy imperial stout.

sir__v (2493) - Lille, FRANCE - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle from Saveur-Biere. Color: deep dark black beer with no carbonation and small brown head. Smell: roasted malt, licorice, grassy hops and high alcohol finih. Taste: full body with roasted malt and caramel. Licorice and hoppy taste. Finish alcohol and roasted malt too strong. Not well balanced for a black IPA. Aftertaste: bitterness, alcohol.

Cela fait maintenant plusieurs annes que je dguste cette bire dont je suis tmoin dune volution rflchie et inspirante. Cette version prcise minterpelle particulirement. Dabord au niveau du look, la bire est aussi irrprochable quelle la toujours t. Un liquide parfaitement noir, une mousse beige onctueuse, crmeuse, dense et collante au verre. Le liquide dans le verre semble dune densit harmonieuse et savamment calcule. En faisant tournoyer le liquide dans mon verre, la pr-mousse se reforme instantanment et ne remonte que trs lentement vers la mousse principale. Cette version-ci de la black IIPA me plat particulirement car les houblons, bien que bien frais et toujours aussi floraux, sont mon got personnel moins agressifs et mieux balancs que dans les versions prcdentes de la mme bire. Ceux-ci laissent ainsi une place importante aux malts dont la caramlisation apporte tonus, complexit et profondeur ce liquide mi stout, mi IPA. Je suis exactement au point de jonction de deux styles parfaitement reprsents. Texture soyeuse en bouche ou les houblons sexpriment encore une fois avec souplesse. Un paysage de campagne o jardins floraux et champs de crales renaissent au printemps suite la fonte des neiges. Longueur plus quagrable et jamais lassante, ce brassin de cette bire est pour moi un franc succs!

341 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, dense, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of chocolate, orange, citrus, biscuit, some coffee, some pine.
Tastes of coffee, dark chocolate, citrus, orange, resin, some pine, cocoa, some liquorice, slight tobacco.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty, bitter, zesty, a bit resinous, with cocoa, coffee, liquorice, some tobacco.

Very nice. I was expecting even a bit more, but still an enioyable BIPA, with all the typical elements of this style. Maybe not the most unique one, not among the best style examples Ive had.

Werckmeister (2562) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 9, 2016
341ml bottle at home shared with Saeglopur. According to the Importers Sticker bottled on 27.04.2015. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells coffee, licorice, a bit musty, creamy, cocoa powder, not too much noticeable anymore of the hops on the smell, a bit medical. still good smell though. full body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, coffee, bit citric, some ash, a bit pukeish, coffee grounds, toasted malts, some roast, a bit soapy, medical. finishes rather roasty with notes of coffee and licorice and a bit medical. good stuff, tastes a bit oldish / medical though, probably would have been better fresh, still quite drinkable though.
