France appeared in fine spirits as they trained at Clairefontaine ahead of a World Cup qualifier that is as important as it is tricky; away to Bulgaria. Les Bleus go into the final round of qualifying matches with a one point cushion at the top of Group A with Sweden leading the chase and the Netherlands sitting four points adrift, still within reach. With Sweden facing a home tie against Luxembourg on the same night they travel to Sofia, France know they must come home with three points to keep their fate within their grasp going into the final game.

<<<uzupełnienie ocen z One More Beer Festiwal Kraków 2017 - próbki 50 ml>>> Przyjemna BIPA, z mocną goryczką i lekką palonością.

ogivlado (7955) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 19, 2017
Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Black coloured, medium to big sized brownish head, hops and light chocolate in the nose. Roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, some berries and wood with discreet touch of juniper maybe. Mild and pleasant roasty finish. Nice BIPA.

hauxe (901) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2017
Pours black from the bottle. Has a tan creamy head that lingers. Aroma is a mix of dark fruits, berries, chocolate, garden earth, and burnt rubber. An interesting mix that, while not exactly alluring, remains intriguing. Taste is bitter with sweet chocolate undertones. Body is medium, oily, rich and creamy. Carbonation is mild. The finish is a mix of resin bitterness and chocolate. The ABV stays hidden. Overall a well balanced example of the style. Excellent.

Marko (5931) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 12, 2017
Tap at Fakin. Murky blackbrown, lasting creamy tan head, impressive! Dry aroma, dark malts, light roast, liiight plum jam touch, light generally. Light taste, with the ever soooo slightly tart, juicy berries coming up front before heading into lovely black malt - chocolate - roast territory that goes into a long finish that's far more roasty than bitter. Very atypical Black IPA, and I love it... That aftertaste.

BaroneBirra (472) - Gorizia, ITALY - SEP 10, 2017
Black with brown reflection. Big brown creamy head. Sweet piney hops in the nose. In the taste the hops hide in second plane behind chocolate malts. It's really enjoyable but a little out of style, it seems more an hoppy stout
