In the glass, black as night, with lots of brown foam. Smells very aroma hoppy, Cascade, also slightly like dark malts and caramel. The beer starts with a heavy malt body, roasting coffee-bitter, with a wonderful aroma hops in the background, which increase more and more, by time. The finish turns out again very strong to dark malts, slightly bitter, with strong aromas of roasted coffee. Terrific beer!

500 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Clear. Tall light fluffy beige head that clings to the glass. Bold hoppy aroma with notes of licorice. Ashy aroma. Peppery and minty flavours. Licorice flavours. Medium body. Grassy hop flavours. A really strange beer, which reminds me of liquid sweet licorice mixed with grassy hops. Very flavourful for a beer this low in alcohol.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Aroma of pine, citrus, hops, grassy notes and you can feel the darker touch in there too. The taste add some roasted malts, coffee and light smoke character. Love the concept .

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Poured a deep dark brown colour with a generous tan head. Enticing nose of piney hop, citrus, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavour was a decent mix of roasted malt, citrus and some well judged hop bitterness. Considering its strength there is a lot packed in here. This black cat is more than welcome to cross my path any time.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beermerchants.com. A real mix of styles. Deeply dark red, the expectation is malty, but the reality is a strong, grassy, resinous bitter. Very aromatic, with subtle softness on the tongue and a pleasant grapefruit finish - a slight lemon tartness lingers around and some caramel appears late on. Excellent.
