Sigmund (5280) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
500 ml bottle conditioned, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Lovely aroma of citrussy hops, on a background of moderately roasted malts, hints of dark chocolate. The medium dry flavour has again citrussy hops, blended with distinct roasted malts, notes of strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate and resin. The contradictory "Black IPA" style is beginning to grow on me, and this one is a fine specimen.

4oz pour at Max’s Hop Fest 2013. Pours a translucent, mahogany with some light lacing head. Nose is nice, piney, floral, cracker, bread crust. Flavor is malty, brown sugar, cracker, pine, lemon, soap. Astringent finish. Good example of the style.
