Rich, tasty, greatly balanced and surprisingly sweet. Black IPA as I like it!

vincentvega72 (505) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2016
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 !!!

suurjuust (3159) - ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark brown beer with a medium beige head. Nose is hoppy, slightly dusty, dark malt and roast, citrus. Flavor is hops forward, roast, pine resin and grapefruity bitterness. Near the finish the sweet and roasty notes kick in in an almost bready way. Finish is grapefruity bitterness, roast and malty acidity. Lingering cocoa dust with roast and citric bitterness. Feels pretty oily.
