3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark as stout, with a beige head. The aroma is hoppy, really hoppy, citrus, grapefruit rind, resin, and pine. The flavour is a little more complex though, still hoppy, big on the grapefruit and pine, some medical notes, saltiness, maybe a bit of chocolate then it trails off on a sort of caraway note thatís tied in with a bit of astringent mouthfeel, itís weird, but I like it.

From notes. Had this when it was fairly fresh in spring 2012. Nice hoppy aroma, with a malty finish. Solid Black IPA. needs to be brewed again and go into rotation.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam.
Pours like motor oil, so thick and dark, with almost no head.
Nose has liquorice and burnt sugar and slight hop.
Lovely rich, full taste, with only modest sweetness in the beginning. Herby notes and liquorice in middle with nicely soothing bitter aftertaste.
Very nice indeed.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Bottled on 02/2012. Dark brown pour, light brown head. Aroma of hops. Scents of citrus and pine hops. Not much malt, I expected there to be a touch of roasted barley. Just hops and a good amount of booze. Tastes of some coffee/burnt grains, loads of hops. Bitterness lingers all through out the finish. Sharp pine bite from hops. Bitter citrus rind as well. Overall, itís kinda what I expected out of this First Anniversary brew.
