rosenbergh (10658) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
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.

"pours quite dark, aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, orange and pine. flavor the same...interesting balance between dark malt and orangle peel, especially with the feel being almost distractingly light. a good beer, slightly overpriced here. would be very good if not for the thin feel."
