FatPhil (13255) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 500ml bottle (Angleterre, Helsinki) (6:5:7:4:14=3.6)
Nice roasty aroma. Mellow rich body. Smooth body, but carbonation a little higher than I like, swirls away though. Nice nuttiness. Not sure where this is aiming as it’s not a black IPA. I guess it’s a good hoppy stout though.Good balance between full stout roast and bitter hops. Aromatics not so extreme, barely fighting the other aspects, not a self-selling aroma at all. But still a nice beer.
Rerate: Keg (Pudel, Tallinn) (7:5:7:4:14=3.7)
Very similar to bottle, but a bit more aroma, both roast and pungent spicy hops. Taste matches that exactly. Covers 7.5% very well. Lovely hoppy stout. We did a comparison to Dark Arts, which we’d previously given 3.7, and while that one smelt better, this clearly tasted better. Overall, the preference was here.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
500mL bottle at Euston Tap, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of dry toasted malts, some floral hops, and very dry notes. Flavour brings out very dry roasted / toasted malts, pungent piney hops, and dry bread. Very dry body, full of toasted malt and dry piney hops. Excellent black IPA - one of the best British beers out there.
