Navers (154) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
Bottle from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Beer served in 8°C, Duvel Glass. Pours black, with really nice head. Aroma is very subtle, ashy, earthy, some dust, and then blackberry comes in when it’s getting warmer, and oxidized hops, probably beer spent too long in the shop because hoppy aroma is completely gone. Flavor is rich, probably also thanks to the full, oily and sticky body, blackcurrant, blackberry, intense liquorice, herbal and spicy hops bitterness. Good beer, I wish to drink it fresher some day.

Towey1989 (2818) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2017
Bottle at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a deep brown to black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of blackberry, blackcurrant, grapefruit, a little pine, a hint of green pepper, maybe mint, slight chocolate and some spicy hops. Taste of blackberry, some green pepper, a little grapefruit, dark chocolate, a hint of liquorice and spicy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, chocolatey, spicy, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. OMG! What a black IPA, very hop forward but not citrusy like most beers in this style. Herbal, spicy and fruity and oh so smooth. Superb.

lello4ever (987) - ITALY - APR 14, 2017
Nera con splendido cappello di schiuma marroncina compatta e persistente. Al naso note erbacee intende con tostatura. Al palato è veramente eccellente, con un equilibrio notevole tra malto tostato e luppolatura. L’amaro è persistente, il corpo leggero. Buona.

On the nose are fruity hops, and some metallic porter notes. The flavour starts of with dark fruits , but finishes in a viscous bitter bite. Superb beer.

bjorn77 (422) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 7, 2017
Aromat: średnio intensywny, słodkie świeże owoce i owoce suszone Wygląd: bardzo ciemne, piękna warstwa jasnobeżowej, drobnopęcherzykowej piany na półtora centymetra, chwilkę utrzymującej się i oblepiającej ścianki szkła. Smak: zdecydowanie intensywniejszy niż aromat. Kawa i paloność, chmielowa żywiczna goryczka podbijana palonością. Trochę gorzko czekoladowej słodyczy. Bardzo przyjemne i bogate w smaku i pijalne. Dosyć wytrawne i dobrze, że nie ma niepotrzebnej słodyczy. Tempest trzyma wysoki poziom, bardzo smaczne piwo
