rickgordon (3870) - Gteborg, - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at lrepubliken. Dark brown color, I guess almost black. Way too toasty in both aroma and flavor. Hop flavor is practically not there due to the dark malts. Bitterness is big and adequate. This is one of those black ipas that really tastes like a foreign stout with less sweetness. The beer is good but it is not a black ipa.

Pours complete black with a rich layer of head. Tiny bubbles form the foam. Aroma is rich and smooth, intense cocoa nibs. Dark malts, chocolate, herbal hops, a bit grassy. Medium body. Rich smooth mouthfeel. Cocoa is also intense in flavour, dark malts, very hoppy-herbal, bitter, bitter dark chocolate, a little sweet. Medium long bitter finish. What a brilliant black IPA!

Bottle. Black with small head. Mine was 6 months old so it was mostly roasted malt and licorice in the aroma and taste. There was some hops present also, but I believe it should have been more if it was fresher.

tap/omerta. czarne, bez refleksw, generalnie brak piany zaraz po nalaniu, ale po wzbudzeniu tworzy ładną koronkę, piana brązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa. aromat słodowy, cytrusowy, po ogrzaniu subtelne słody palone. w smaku natomiast słody palone dominują i długo utrzymują się na podniebieniu w postaci palonej goryczki. pełne, alkohol niewyczuwalny, nasycenie niskie. mega dobre piwo

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts, hops and citrus.

Opaque black beer with a large/huge beige/brown head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts, hops and citrus.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Superb balanced flavour, though slightly on the roasted malts side, especially great for its abv. The hops never make some orange or pine happen, but they are perfectly woven into the mix. Great aroma and palate, together with an amazing appearance. Wonderful beer overall with no flaws whatsoever.

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.
