3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours murky brown color with a large, thick off-white head. Aroma has the intense hops and roast malts familiar to most black ipas, pine needles, nice floral notes, some resin and caramel are there too. Lots of citrus fruits, mostly mandarin, on the flavor, roasted dry malts and resiny hops follow. Quite bitter but still somewhat dry palate with a nice refreshing effect. Very nice brew altogether.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of roasted malts, floral hops, blackcurrant and passion fruit. Flavour of strong roasted malts, burnt wood, floral hops, rubber, sweet juiciness and pungent salty licorice. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and rather high carbonation. Finish is very bitter and roasty with surprisingly strong saltiness. Saltiness disturbs, but otherwise a strong black IPA.
