Nutty flavours definitely come through, I dunno about wet-hopped beers, i don’t find them punchy enough?. It’s a good beer, nonetheless.

Deep brown, almost black pour with a light brown head. Malty, chocolatey, coffee aromas with a little citrus. Taste is similar, slightly sweet too, hops are more noticeable than in the aroma. Pretty damn good.

Bottle shared with Dad. A very dark brown to black beer with a nice pillowy creamy tan head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, dark chocolate, orange, and light coffee. Mild sweetness, grapefruit and peachy flavour, a touch resiny, grassy. Roasty finish, good bitterness. Really enjoyed this beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 20/12/2013. Should be taken off the retired list as this one was bottled on 18/3/2013 (ie. it looks like an annual). Pours the darkest of amber with a huge foamy head (bottle gushed on opening). Has a moderate aroma featuring chocolate malt and fruity hops. Tastes of choc and caramel malt with some firm, slightly grapefruity hops following. Has a slightly creamy texture and lively carbonation. Exhibits fantastic balance and goes down super easy for 6.6%. a really good black IPA, which isn’t a surprise given Mikkeller is involved.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
