Really nice black IPA. Perfect balance between the roasty cocoa and coffee and the hops attributes. Mostly resin, grapefruit, pineapple. It's quite green. It's never boozy even with the abv. Really nice thick mouthfeel. A delight

The best Italian beer I've tasted so far. Delicious dark chocolate, coffee and citrusy aroma and flavour. Similar to Libertine.

Pours dark brown, almost black, one finger tan head that recedes fast, leaving lots of traces and a sticky lace.
Roasted malts and green hops are fifty fifty in the smell. There's grapefruit, some sweeter citrus too, pine, unrripe pineapple, faint chocolate, dark bread, burnt sugar.
Roast comes first in the taste, a bit burnt, ashy, followed fast by citrus (faint tangerine too) and pineapple juice, some peach and apricot as it starts to sweeten up a bit, faitn mango, plus clearer dark chocolate, faint coffee bean, raisin too. Finishes with pine and charcoal, bitter, but forgiving.
Medium body and carbonation, nice balance between rough malts and fruitiness, hiding the alcohol nicely in the same time. Aftertaste is left with burnt dark bread (the rye helps too), leafy hops and even some lingering fruitiness.
Wasn't quite sure what Brewfist could dish out, but it was a great first one for me. Great hops, great balance, a really great black IPA.
