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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nearly black color with a light tan head that goes quickly. Straightforwar grapefruit hops with some citrus and darker fruit notes and light chocolate in the aroma. More toasty in the taste, but certainly remains hop-forward with berries and grapefruit...finishing with light burnt chocolate. Slick with OK carbonation.

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.

Draught at Ølbaren. Very dark brown look with a nice light brown head. Lovely Nelson hop aroma of grape and mandarine, i never grow tired of this hop sort. The fresh hops are backed up by some sweet chocolate and caramel along with toasted bread and roasted malts. Big flavor for a normal abv beer, especially the hops bring a strong fresh bitterness but the smooth sweet full rounded palate does add something aswell, especially as the beer warms up. Great beer!
