bottle at home. poured a slight hazy black colour with a huge tan head. chocolate malts, roast, milk chocolate, pines, earth tones, bitterness. taste of grapefruit, citrus, lemon peel. this could be such a great black ipa. but for me the bitterness has the overtone ins this beer. should be a lot better if they used a bit more chocolate and malts

Great black colour, huge creamy beige, very stable head, light carbonation. Aroma of pine, mango, pineapple, resin, grapefruit, some roasted malty aroma.
Taste is malts, fruity hops, liquorice. That’s very refreshing beer, perfectly balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Towering greige head, slowly collapsing over near-black opaque red-brown beer. End of bottle solid yeast. Ultra-dry hops’ nose, dry hopbales, Hessian sacks, but definitely appetizing. Hint at astringency, already in the nose. Again ultra-dry-bitter-hoppy, with an outspoken bitter-metallic finish, long lasting. Hint at liquorice without sweetness quinine. Warming up, roasted barley. Chewy, very slick to viscous, without being really full-bodied. Hopbitter overdose. Pity.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, big fruity and earthy hops, slight caramel. Nice. Flavour is quite bitter of roast, some fruity bitter hop notes, liquorice. Long lingering roasty bitterness. Too much for the body imho, but still a nice beer.

Almost opaque dark brown - black beer. Small pale tan head. Light fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts with light touches of dark chocolate and coffee. Nice balanced hops - mellow pine, a little citrus and a pinch of hops spice. A little dark malt cream develops before the semi dry finish then a brief flash of tropical fruits. Tasty and well balanced black IPA. Lots going on and very drinkable.
