3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 11/6/2014. Damn Merchants. Aroma is all malt, as most old IPAs smell, earthy hops, not much else. Appearance is dark dark brown, light tan head. Taste is roasted malt, earthy hops, actually isn’t all that bad. Deep rich flavor. Mouthfeel is medium body, crisp carbonation, lots of roast in the aftertaste. Overall, for a beer that’s old as fuck, this one is pretty good. I’d like this fresh as I imagine it’s really good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33l bottle at home from trade with Zakoon, big thanks. No obvious BB date. almost black color, medium big tan head. good lacing. smells of citric notes, some licorice, some parfume, light spices, cloves, hints of vanilla, bitter chocolate, nuts. decent smell. full body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of resin, some licorice, grass, coffee, hints of grapefruit. finishes lightly roasty with notes of licorice and light resin notes. decent stuff, quite a lot of carbonation though which probably rather improves the beer, overall limited flavours but possibly my bottle is also not so fresh.

En rigtig god IPA, den har noter af frisk humle, og har en lille smag af brændt malt i eftersmagen.

Mix a nice roast stout with a fairly hopp IPA and this is what you get. Very dark roasted malt taste with exceptional hop profile. Really tasty hybrid type beer.

Thanks to no bottle or expiry date, no idea how old this is. Fuck off Americans, give us dates. Malt, light chocolate and very light coffee, disturbing amount of very sharp citrus fruits. Not really my cup of tea. Light bitter.

Mine is a year old, thanks to a blind build of a six pack on my part. So, I’ll be gentle. Super carbonated Much of the roasty malt, dark chocolate and coffee are gone. Not a ton of hops flavor or bitterness. Still, I see bits of what made this a good one.

Aroma: burnt coffee. Appearance: black coffee. Taste: burnt coffee, burnt toffee, grapefruit, dry. Palate: creamy, smooth, milk stout-ish. Overall: bitter, solid black IPA. Re-rated this a 3.7 from a 3.5...what can I say, I like process & discipline.
