Bottle @ Too many Geuze’s - only one toilet , Ulfborg 2012. Pours dark brown with a small creamy head and lacings. Citrus, grapefuit, caramel, vague roast and an ashy touch. Dry and bitter roasted and hoppy end. The hops are kept in the back and not as shiny as I wish them to be in a "black Ipa". Medium bodied. Good.

Bottle from Liz. Pours black with a 3.5 finger creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and resin. Med body. Flavor is roasty dark malt with some light pine. There might be some zest in here. There is certainly a lot of intense flavor. So it’s complex of course!
