Bottle. Black color with a brown head. A solid black IPA. It has a rich malty body with a well balanced and nicely hopped finish. The malts are nice and chocolaty and there really is a hint of tangerine in the aroma.

Werckmeister (2473) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 18, 2016
0,355l can at home. No obvious BB date. almost black color, small tan head. smells quite nice fruity / herbal, grapefruit, grass, light notes of mango, very light sweetness, some earthy notes, lovely fresh smell. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of grapefruit, a bit citric, lemon grass, light notes of licorice, spices, quite a bit of grass. finishes rather fruity and only very light bitter with notes of grapefruit, lemon grass and a very light sweetness. quite lovely beer, taste is rather light especially considering the ABV, but this makes it easily drinkable. also not overly complex but still quiet enjoyable. finish gets a bit boring when warm.
