3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. Interesting brew... an imperial coffee black IPA stout?! I dunno. It was okay. Black pour under a small tan head. Hoppy aroma, but floral and earthy, coffee, hints at peppery, some chocolate and caramel. Okay flavor, bitter, coffee, earthy and floral. Not bad.

660ml bottle shared with mr_h. Almost black, reasonable head. Hoppy chocolate aroma. Spicy chocolate coffee flavour. Spicy chilli coffee aftertaste. Too strong and not really my sort of beer but I am sure it is not a bad beer.

Hoppy + coffee + stout in the nose.
A big beer that drinks like an imperial coffee IPA.
Moderately intense hops mix with black coffee and a load of dark roasted grains.
Thick full body.
