Czechs look down one’s nose at dark beers. They think of them as too sweet. Sadly, in may cases it’s just like that -- the breweries rather adjust to the society opinion then to do things right. We’re not like that, you won’t find a sweet Lucky Bastard beer.

Lucky Bastard Black is a dry dark beer. And like all of our beers, Black is nicely aromatic as well. Notice especially the juicy citruses. The use of dark and roasted malts brings other stuff too -- chocolate and coffee. You’ll discover both in aroma and in the taste. But no sweetness. We’d like to live a decent dark beer with you! Would you have one with us?

Beer with dark color, medium bitterness, some foam in the top, soft carbonized, (drunk a 50cl tap beer in NaPalmě, Praha, CZ #540 - 1st Black IPA).

Wendigo (750) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 4, 2017
0.75l bottle (ABV: 6.2%). Malty and hopy aroma, light citruses and resin, light coffee, roasted malts. Dark brown color, ivory head. Malty taste, light hopy notes, coffee, roasted malts, forest fruits, light resin, light sour, medium bitter. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation and malty bitter finish. I miss more hops in it, it’s more like porter than Black IPA, but drinkable. Ok.

On tap. Black color, tan head. Aroma of pine, citruses, roasted malt, coffee. Nice floral smell. Well balanced, very enjoyable.

Ascelja (1958) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 3, 2017
Tap. Dark red, medium white head. Aroma of resiny, licorice, roasted malts. Taste is bitter, lightly sweet. Empty, only a bit resiny and roasty. Light to medium body with watery texture, average carbonation.
Bad for black IPA.

Rotin (1956) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 28, 2017
Draught at BeerGeek Bar. Deep red to brown colored. AROMA- roasted malts, hoppy, citrusy. FLAVOR- slightly sweet, bitter, hop resins, roasted malts. Light to medium bodied.
Somewhat empty and light bodied for me.

12 oz bottle via cuso in trade. Now friends, i am slooooowly coming around to the idea of black ipas. That does not mean i love them like one would love say, Jolene Blalock. I would say that i enjoy them like one would enjoy say popcorn at a movie theater. Toasty and moderate bodied. Slick finish . Mild hops mingle. Soon, very soon, my Slovak beer numbers will surpass the Belgians.....splitters.

visionthing (5658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2016
33cl bottle at 100 pív, Bratislava. Pours darker than Coca-Cola, close to black, with a small, but lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malty, fairly mild, some chocolate and dark fruits, mild hoppy notes, citrus and herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with fairly mild flavours and a bitterness on the lighter side too. Mild, but fairly enjoyable.

rosenbergh (12021) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2016
330 ml bottle. 6.2%. BB 2016/06/06. From Gurthnar (ELS). Díky Peter!
Dark reddish brown color with a small to mid-size rocky off-white head. Roasted malt, vegetables, hops, mild bitterness, licorice and some dryness in the aroma. Quite nice! The flavor is roasted malt, ashy dryness, hoppy bitterness, licorice and salty licorice. I like this.
