tfredvik (1912) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 2, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy, very deep brown body with a creamy, dense, light tan head that sticks to the glass and ends up as a fully lasting layer. Very strong aroma with a close to perfect hop/malt balance. Sweet fruits, some tropical fruits, dark caramel, milk chocolate and roasted malt, with some pine in the back. Strong flavour of chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt, citrus, pine, resin, generic fruits with hints of tropical fruits and rye bread. Light sweet taste with a long-lasting rather heavy bitter finish. Mid-bodied, dry and quite lively carbonation. Nice!
[33 cl bottle, 6.66% ABV, enjoyed 4 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevl, Oslo]

Kommentar: Flaskens label sier "Renaissance Enlightenment Series Black the RIPA" men bde ABV og tekst p flasken peker mot at det er "Renaissance Enlightenment Series Fresh Hopped Black the RIPA" p 6.66% ABV. Ratet som denne da resten av etiketten ikke stemmer med Fresh hopped.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball from notes (also a bottle). Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, ash, coffee, earthy hop bitterness, spicy rye notes, the draft version was better than the bottle by a couple tenths.

Leighton (20821) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Draft at Craft Beer Rising 2014 - London. Pours clear, dark brown with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds burnt bread, pine, earth. Light sweet flavour with big torched earth character, more ash, burnt pine, charred malts. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with robust bitterness, more earth, baking cocoa, scorched pine. Not bad, but too ashy.
