dnicolaescu (2680) - 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.

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.

No head. Brownish black colour. Grassy, fruity, catty nelson flavour. Tiny hint of chocolate in the taste, some unbalanced bitterness, nevertheless very mild. Solid black ipa with long bitter finish

IlGagario (119) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 3, 2016
In bottiglia, a casa. Colore nero profondo con risvolti color cola nel sottotesta. Schiuma da bianca a color caffè, alta e persistente, da soapy a pannosa. Olfatto molto soddisfacente ed intenso di agrumi maturi. Carbonazione da soffice a media. Aroma inizialmente citrico, con evidenza di pompelmo e cedro, ma anche mandarino e mango, nota di caffè lontana che diviene via via più percettibile con l’aumentare della temperatura. Amaro tostato reso frizzante dagli agrumi. Carattere maltato pronunciato, sovrastato dall’agrume ma in recupero nel dopo beva, con tocco appena setoso alle gonadi. Mouthfeel agrumato con picco amaro e nota brulèe smorzata. Finale amaro breve e gentile. Corpo da medio a pieno, struttura da watery a oleosa con a tratti sensazione lattica. Nota alcoolica di chiara avvertenza ma gentilmente smorzata. Nelson Sauvin unico luppolo, qui lega bene le componenti per un prodotto molto armonico. Davvero una ottima black IPA, da manuale.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 butelka, warka rozlana 19/11/15. stosunkowo jasne (czyli ciemno brazowe) z ladna, powoli opadajaca i zostajaca na szkle piana. w aromacie dominuje to, co wszyscy nazywaja prazonym slonecznikiem a dla mnie jest zywica sosnowa :) jest palonosc. jest jakas lakowosc. i sa tez ewidentne winogrona jasne. w smaku dosc wytrawne, dosc pelne, nieco popiolowe, z wyrazna ale nie jakas bardzo wysoka goryczka. w posmakach palonosc i winigrona. klasa. i nelson dziala :)
