JackMandarin (185) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle from Salt Horse, Edin. Pours very dark brown. Red at the edge. Light tan head that lasts and good, oily lacing. Quite a savoury richness in the aroma from the first blast. Dank piney aroma comes through next. Treacle. A touch of something smoky. Quite meaty, almost pepperoni-like. More malt than hops here but with still enough resinous hop presence. Strikes a different balance from most other Black IPA’s though. Taste has a bittersweet start. Charred peaches. Very pithy grapefruit. The bitterness is quickly overtaken by a firm and drying bitterness. More hops than malt here! Roasty with rich coffee tones. Sherbert carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Astringent finish that’s a little too full on for me. A very interesting Black IPA that isn’t fully my thing but with bags of character.
