Patjeadam (161) - - MAR 20, 2014
A very pleasant black ipa. The smell is a bit underwhelming, the first taste is a little fleeting. The taste itself is very good with bitter roasted malts and coffee with fresh flowery hops. The aftertaste is pleasant, not very long. Very good taste, but a little bit small aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana. Dark brown coloured, small to medium sized brownish head, light chocolate in the nose. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, light caramel and citrusy hoppy with moderate bitter finish and aftertaste. Not the best I've tried but good and pleasant.

Bottle. Nearly pitch black, off white head. Soft, nice aroma, maltiness, dry caramel, light orangey aroma hops. Creamy taste, more of the same as in the aroma, caramelly maltiness and orangey aroma hops. Well balanced, all too sessionable for the ABV. Well done!
