evannell (845) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Piwo nie do końca czarne, z ładną, beżową, gęstą pianą. już podczas nalewania unosi się nad nim ta grejpfrutowa doskonałość. Kuszący ten zapach. W smaku uderza mocna ilość igieł, grejpfruta, a za nią mocno palona kawa. Ujawnia się trochę czekoladowej słodyczy - jak na mj gust trochę zbyt wiele. Duży plus za samą fermentację. Widać, że przy produkcji piwa nie ucierpiały żadne drożdże.

Sigmund (7061) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2017
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.3%. Black colour, moderate beige head. Fresh aroma of fruity and piney Galaxy hops, also some mild roasty notes, hints of coffee. The flavour is slightly on the dry side, distinct hops, but also more distinct roast malts here, with notes of strong bitter coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Plenty of bittering hops in the finish.

bbertels (443) - NORWAY - FEB 11, 2017
Taste at Bergen Whisky and Beer Festival 2017. Dark Brown to black in colour. Chestnuts, coffee, licorice, some hoppiness at first whiff. Modestly carbonated, the taste resembles the aroma wth added dimension of some fruityness. Good but not excellent.
