Tap @TCBW2015. Pitch black color. Small size, beige head, stays. Fart, roast, rye, ashy, citrus in aroma. Not really good aroma. Grainy, roasted malts, fine hops, cocoa in taste. Mix of mellow roast and hops in aftertaste. Nice one!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from LCBO via my bro, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Deep clear brown with a full tan head.
Aroma: Strong resinous and piney hops, a little roasted malt, some caramel/toffee, quite nice.
Palate: Medium+ body, moderate carbonation.
Flav.: Pine that is almost raw...like chewing on a tree, eucalyptus, faint roasted malt, resin, less enjoyable than the nose, but still decent; dry with pretty good bitterness and a long, resinous, very evergreen finish.
Quite the BIPA! I could handle a second bottle.

Black ipa esplosiva, con una carica di luppoli fruttati che si intreccia perfettamente col tostato dei malti, arricchito da note di cioccolato e caffé. Completa, elegante, molto molto più che buona.
