Boutip (5910) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dark black color ale with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt with super nice notes of green hops with light piney notes. Taste is also dominated by deep roasted malt notes with some fresh green hops notes is really enjoyable. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Superb balance between green hoppy notes with some lightly roasted malt notes. I wish this beer was available locally on a regular basis.

Beer5000 (5905) - 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.

Bottle thx to benzai @ home. Pitch black, opaque colour with a small off-white head, but it’s quite cold. Smells hops, grapefruit, roasty, some dark chocolate. Great combination between ipa and stout. Tastes quite hoppy, dark chocolate, roasty, fruity, very fresh and refreshing, lovely. Full body, low carbo.
