4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 10%
The thick layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle got me worried, something was telling me that this was going to be a gusher. After reading some reviews I played it safe and I opened it above the sink, but it seems I worried for nothing, Yes it gushes a little bit but very slowly. Anyway, it pours a totally black beer with a huge beige head, very thick and creamy, with fantastic retention, leaving light lacing around the glass.
Aroma of roasted malts nicely blended with some light citrus, grapefruit, light chocolate, lemon leaves. Every sniff switches between stout aroma, IPA aroma, then blended and so on and forth.
Tastewise is more close to a stout, more roasted than hoppy character and the impression gets even stronger because of the high alcohol level. There is a spicy touch and some orange peel on the finish though. The bitterness on the aftertaste comes definitely from the hops, with a long lasting effect on the tongue and the back of the throat.
Medium thick body with fizzy but on good levels carbonation. Dry palate but yes, also sticky.
Overall a great beer, one of the best I had from Berghoeve.

Bottle. Gusher! Spilled almost half the bottle :( Murky brown, with loads of tan foam that shrinks to a thin layer. Aroma: grass, citrus, wood, dark berries. Taste: brown sugar, coffee, roast, citrus, herbs, pine, liquorice, somewhat earthy. Medium body, sticky, moderately sweet and bitter, with a long lasting herbal and liquorice finish. Lovely, only need to get the foam under control.

On tap at the Groningen Bierfestival. Black, really black in the glass. Dark berries and peppermint at the nose.Starts mild, little bit burning alcohol. A lot of dark fruits and burned malt. Hop bitterness present in the background. Like a very spicy Schwarzbier. Very good!

Roasty malty aroma, taste starts malty, bitterness is there at the end and stays a long time. The alcohol is very present, but because of the ballence between malt and bitternes its very nice. I think it is a very good Dark IPA with quite a lot of extreem flavours. Well done !
