piwnepodroze (497) - POLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Pierwsze co uderza to brak oczekiwanej żywicy w aromacie i smaku. Jest za to popił, rodzynki, nuta lukrecji, zioła i kawa. Jest to bardzo intrygująca mieszanka, ktra sprawia, że z ciekawością sięga się po kolejne łyczki.

Bottle. Clear black body, high beige hear. Promising sweet aroma of licorice, resiny, leaves flowers, strawberries, pines - hoppy complexity. Rich taste is bitter and sweet, nice bitterness in finish. Again leaves, licorice, herbs, strawberry compot, pines, aromatic leaves, rosemary, herbs... Full body, high carbonation.
Rich, tasty, greatly balanced and surprisingly sweet. Black IPA as I like it!

Hoppy coffee - thats what it is! Hoppy fruitiness mixes with coffee and dark malts flavors. Very tasty!

Pitch black body with big brown head. Aroma is wonderful, hoppy with coffee notes and licorice. Taste is even better, big mango with roasted notes, very well balanced. Full body, soft carbonation. Alcohol is hidden well. Very very good.

Mooi donkerzwart bier met fluffy crmekleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegzakt. Overweldigend fruitig aroma (mango, tropisch fruit, meloen, beetje steranijs). Hele lekkere volle smaak met subtiele en zeer goed gebalanceerde zoet/bittere afdronk. Dit drinkt zooo lekker weg. Absoluut top dit !!!
