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.

ClubGonzo (4902) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is pine, spruce, freshlty cut grass, hints of chocolate, peaches and cold coffee. Taste is pine, coffee, resin, grass, hints of peaches, herbs and licorice. Medium body and carbonation. A very well executed BIPA with a flavorful, hoppy profile while still having a bit to offer on the malty side.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
From a 0.5 L bottle shared @Papsoe’s. Pours dark brown to black. Blond lacing head. Tropical fruity and mild resiny hops to the nose. Restrained "black" aromas, some gently rounded roastiness only. Taste is hop forward. Fruity hop flavor featuring grapefruit, apricot, peaches and pinapple. Distinct bitterness. Dry cocoa tones from the malt. Quite light in the mouth. Lasting fruity-bitter ending.

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
