mjs (6141) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2012
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Black Door, 20120817) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had pine, grass and hint of roasted malts in the background. Palate was medium bodied and a bit oily with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, roasted malts, ash, pine, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty, hoppy and bitter. Aroma promised less roastedness than the taste delivered. A great beer nevertheless.

Countbeer (5955) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle (33cl): Served in a shaker at 13 degrees Celsius: Medium sized beige head. Deep dark black brown beer. Aroma is incredible yet smooth and not exaggerated hoppy with some nice roasty tones. Very well balanced! Flavour is more or less the same as the aroma but than with more fruit, bitters, resin, some sweets, little pine tones and floral tones. Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, herbal and floral tones, light grassy, very hoppy and a toast sprinkle. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Serious delicious beer!

teorn88 (5860) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Backlog rating. Bottle in London. It pours a deep amber-brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is earthy and malty with notes of pines needles, dried leaves and cut grass. Taste is malty with some caramel, earthy notes and piney hops and resin. Quite full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a good take on the style

Beer5000 (5774) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, almost black with a beige head. Nice aroma with citric fruit, pine and some roasted malt. Flavor is refreshing fruity, some pine, dark malt, light roasted and decent bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. Quite nice and smooth, but a bit on the safer side and actually rather standard black IPA.
