3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. About 1 month from bottling. Pours pitch black with a nice frothy head that fades very slowly and leaves some webbing. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate, roast, burnt toast, and pine. Tastes pretty roasty with a moderate pine hop taste. Subtle chocolate and dark bread as well. No sweetness at all really. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little chalky. Medium to thick body. A decent Black IPA but I’ve had many better.

Bottle shared by Todd on man night. Aroma of fudge, pine resin, and a decent dark citrus malt. Pours black with small to medium tan head. Taste is roasty chocolate cake, pine, grapefruit, and a mocha finish. Very nice black IPA. Not the hoppiest I’ve had but delicious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 330mL bottle [batch 109; best before 16/04/15]. Near black with tan head. Aroma has a balance of citrus hops, roast malt, caramel malt, and chocolate harmoniously competing without outshining each other. Taste has a similar balance wherein each flavour can be individually tasted with just a mildly dry finish. Yet, because nothing is really dominant, it lacks the real punch that would lead to a knock out.
