3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Citrus aroma. Opaque brown pour with a gigantic rocky tan head and minor lacing. Malt taste upfront with hints of dark choclate and coffee. There is a hopped citrus bitter finish. Medium-light body and high carbonation. Overall, this was enjoyable. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Bottled 8/11. From Kihoskh, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Black colour with ridiculously big tan frothy head.
Piney hops and roasted malt in aroma. Excellent Black IPA aroma. Like walking through the coniferous forest with malt and chocolate with you.
Flavour is very smooth with mild hops and roasted malt. Low carbonation. Very drinkable and tasty but quite simple Black IPA.
