3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a big, creamy, dark beige head over an almost black body. Nice lacings. Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and lots of orange peel and pine cones. It’s full bodied and a bit heavy on the carbonation. Still nice though. Semi-dry. Roasted matls, dark chocolate, hints of coffee and lots of pine cones and citrus peel. Nice hoppy bitterness too, lasting for a good while. Roasted malts and hop flavors in the finish. Sure a nice one, although it’s a bit more dark malty than I prefer my Black IPA’s. 140613
