Szopeen (476) - POLAND - MAR 6, 2017
Butelka w Carpe Kraft. Niezłe Black IPA, aromacie bardziej przypominał normalne IPA. Dobrze pijalne, goryczka mogłaby być nieco wyższa.

jjsint (2837) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle ordered online. Black and impenetrable. A bit of tan head, and lacing on the glass. Amazingly intense pine aroma. Some sweet liquorice, a touch of spearmint. Bitter taste with liquorice, mint and coffee grounds. Long bitter finish. Its really good, and I dig the flavours. It lacks the complexity of the very best BIPAs but its a pleasure to drink.
