anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from Beersnmore. Grassy hops with a little roast aroma. Lots but very smooth and silky carbonation leading into sweet-ish stout-ish blackness. Medium body. Grassy hops are present throughout, even on the palate. A bit juicy, relaxed bitterness. Nice balance though. Beautiful!

Pours translucent black with medium off-white head. Aromas of nice chocolate malt and citrus hops. Fine carbonation but decent body. Taste is roasted malt, pine hops and slight soapiness. Medium dry and light-medium bitter. Very nice black IPA but not quite as good as Black Betty

dnicolaescu (2337) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 8, 2016
100 ml sample, courtesy of Maersk. Dark brown, almost black. (Just) hoppy aroma, dank and catty with notes of white wine (?). The taste is also mostly hoppy, yet with a light but clear velvety chocolate note. Smooth mouth feel. Excellent.

sunstoneale (74) - MOLDOVA - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle brought by Maersk, thanks! Pours black with an off creamy head. Unmistakable Nelson Sauvin aroma: white grapes, white wine, some light grass. At the same time, as the beer gets warmer hints of chocolate and coffee also appear in the nose, rendering the overall impression as a hoppy chocolate bar. Medium body, pleasant palate. Taste fully corresponds to aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee over a refreshing hop profile. Finishes dry and pleasantly bitter with both roasty and hoppy character. Very pleasant black IPA.
