3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours brown with an orange hue and a dense and lacing off-white head. Bretty, farty nose atop some sour berries. Medium body, heavy funk and barnyard, very subtle roast and a distinct lactic tartness. Clearly a Sour - not much left of the original Black IPA. 270413

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks a ton, Blake! Bottled 7/12, #274/1531. Pours a murky plum-brown-amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of plums, dust, spuce, earthy funk, and some roast. Flavor of plums, lemon, earthy funk, oak, and roasted malts. Medium-bodied, with a tart mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Never would have thought of this as a black IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Soapy head from slow pour. Beer comes through with a lot of piney, earthy and funky brett nose. Initial taste is big on the brett into the bitterness of the spruce tips. Interesting to say the least.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Huge spruce in the nose, some roast, light coffee, pine, earthiness, spice and herbal tinges. Opaque dark brown color, head is light tan, uneven, fine and lasting. Flavor profile is roasty, lightly sweet, more spruce here as well, with generous piney, hoppy flavors and bitterness and some darkly bready malt in the background. Generously effervescent, bubbly palate, body is medium. Very interesting and enjoyable stuff.
