4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 750mL bottle bottle purchased from Leary’s for $9.80. Shared with my sister and our old high school friend, Troy. Pours a rubyish deep brown with which sustained sudsy tan head. Supremely awesome lace. Aromas of rye flour, American yeast, tapioca, dried black plums, shiitake mushrooms, honeydew melons, saké kasu, soy milk, and Grains of Paradise. Tastes of rye malt, American hops, pine needles, caraway seeds, parsnips, and chamomile. An explosion of farmhouse yeast, dark chocolate and sunflower seeds by swallow. De-lic-ious.

Good blend. Decent roasted and hoppy aroma. Dark coffee brown color with a slightly tan head. Medium weight with strong carbonation. It had a nice blend of flavors consisting of roasted malts, spicy rye and bittering hops. It had some piney and floral hop notes as well. It’s finished somewhat dry. A beer to definitely try.

Oh yeah! Says the KoolAid man.
Deep, dark nutty british looking, but west coast hoppy tasting but with undercurrents of wheathy, grainy, goodness.

Black with a thin lacing of brown head. Aroma is rye, hops and slight notes of fruit. Flavor is hoppy with a sharp bite of rye undercut by some slight citrus notes. Strong roasted malt finish with just a touch of chocolate.

Bottle, 75cl - Clear black red beer with a large beige head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, peaches, roasted oats and metallic hops. Flavor is toasty with notes of roasted barley, spruce, citrus and caramel. Very nice take on a Black IPA.

Varför slösa bort en sån här öl på mig? Har mycket svårt för den här tramsiga stilen. Skänker bort det som är kvar i glaset

bread, biscuit, grassy hops, and citrus in the aroma. Flavor is rich and malty, with fruity, bitter pine hops in the finish. Really good balance in a really good beer.
