Bottle from déjàvu. Pours black with small beige head. Nose is full of roasted coffee, heavy malts, powdered chocolate and slight hoppy hint. Taste has espresso and chocolate tones up front with a slight bitter finish. Good black ipa.

Ølen slik den fremstår i dag er et sted mellom brown ale og porter, med veldig lite bitterhet. Endel gress i smaken og generelt ganske smooth.

Opaque black beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate, very light. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth light milky dark malt, no roast or bitterness, just very light. Whisper of coffee and chocolate. Mild minerals. Not much else here but the dark malt is marvellously smooth and the beer is very drinkable.

This would be my favorite brown ale.
A great balance of malt and hops.
Nice hop bitterness.

330ml bottle. Pours black in colour with a thick tan head leaving some lacing and aroma of roasted malt, coffee plus grapefruit hop. Taste is initially sweetish dark malt, roasted, smokey, coffee, followed by chocolate, raisins and fruity citrus grapefruit & pine hop bitterness. Nicely smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, clean finish with some lingering chocolate notes. Well balanced, very drinkable black IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a really solid black with a pillowy tan head. The nose is pretty amazing with a combo of fresh and stewed fruit, pine resin, chocolate, a little smoke, some spice and coffee. The taste starts out with apple and raisin, which gives way pretty quickly to a moderate hop and coffee bitterness before pine and some light chocolate appear at the end. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Finishes relatively clean with a coffee/spice aftertaste. Awesome.
