Great citrus and some pine aroma over rich roasted malts base. Taste is very roasted, with a lot of coffee and dark chocolate character plus
Cytrusowy i kawowy aromat. Karmel mało odczuwalny. W smaku cytrusy. Piana o kawowym zabarwieniu. Bardzo pijalne. Super piwko. mieszal92 (509) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Bottle 330ml. Pours black with ruby flashes. Pale beige head, dissipated to weak film. Beautiful lacing.
Nose is its strongest suit. Citruses yellow fruits, flowers balanced with malty roastiness (tiny) and biscuits. All well-balanced, very fresh and pleasant.
Mouth: Weird? Bitterness is moderate to high, short strike, but a long aftertaste of bitter sourness and coffee. Medium body, watery, very dry, carbonated too much, I think.
Overall: I’ve had a few polish high ranked blackIPAs recently and this seems poor, to be honest.
