3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Shaun Hill. Batch 866 best before 2015-09. Dominated by citrus, pine, bark with the malts in the back adding balance to the strong hopping. Some chocolate and cocoa. Medium body, relatively low sweetness, medium bitter. Long hoppy dry finish. Ok, but a bit agressive and the malts could be more pronounced for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet red fruit and toasty mocha vanilla roasted barley aroma with hazelnut accents. Black under a dense, lasting tan foam. Dry toasty dark chocolate flavour with some woody bitterness and somewhat farmhousy accent that becomes stronger as the beer warms. Pleasant dark chocolate bitterness works well with the farmhousy character. Medium light body, medium carbonation, lingering dry bitter black malt finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy black/dark brown color with rich beige head. Aroma is full of passion fruit, with peach and tones of grapefuit, also pine and some citrus characteristics. Medium-bodied. Taste is very tropical, with passion fruit as well, piny and earthy characteristics and a roasted coffee/malty background. Mind blowing bitter finish. A Black IPA that goes more into the hoppy area, extreme and enjoyable.
