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 caff, 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 caff lontana che diviene via via pi percettibile con laumentare della temperatura. Amaro tostato reso frizzante dagli agrumi. Carattere maltato pronunciato, sovrastato dallagrume ma in recupero nel dopo beva, con tocco appena setoso alle gonadi. Mouthfeel agrumato con picco amaro e nota brule 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.

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 :)

Had this on tap at the brewery ages ago but rating this from bottle tried yesterday. dark brown appearance - slightly cloudy if held to the light. aroma is funky yeast, hops and fruit. tastes fruity at first followed by dark malts/nuts. nice but didnt have a kick of hops.
