A: Czekoladka, cytrusy, sosnowo-żywiczne nuty i muśnięcie kwaśnych leśnych owoców. S: Czekolada, lekka paloność, żywicznie, całkiem fajnie owocowe - cytrusy i nuta ciemnych owoców, półsłodkie, bardzo delikatne, gładkie i pijalne, goryczka niska i ciut za niska jak na ten styl. Bardzo spoko.

Butelka 330ml. Czarny kolor. Piana beżowa, mała,o drobnych pęcherzach, opada szybko. Intensywny aromat cytrusów, sosnowych igieł, czekolady i palonego słodu. W smaku delikatne o świetnym balansie. Dominuje czekolada,palony słód, karmel, kawa. Słodkie akcenty ciemnych owoców kontrowane przez cytrusowe nuty i sosne.

Tap at beerlovers bar. Craftnight 3 : Tempest . Pours black indeed. Some red glow underneath. Medium to small white, stable head. Much lacing. Smell is mostly roqst ( coffee notes, bit burnt , some dark chocolate ) bit grassy. Taste is sharp, burnt, roasted , bit chocolate. Hops are traceable, lack a tad in aroma, but have a grassy, and clear bitter touch. Quite well drinking, very well made. Lovely beer overall. Could meet up with my Top favorites, if a tad more aromatic hops.

330ml bottle. Deep black with a decent off white head. Aroma is chocolate and dried fruit. Flavour is complex: caramel, chocolate, fruit and bitter, citrusy hops. Excellent, and I'm disappointed I only have the one bottle

Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of coffee coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is roasty, citrus bitter, mellow coffee and chocolate finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation. Very very drinkable black IPA, and proof this style isn’t about to die!
