Nice aroma of bittersweet malts and sweet chocolate. Very smooth, rich and oily. Fairly intense bitterness but well balanced by the sweetness of the chocolate.

Appearance is very dark, almost black, a half finger beige frothy head. Aroma- smoky, leather, dark chocolate, fudge, creamy malt, molasses, chocolate cake, sultanas, vanilla. Taste- bitter chocolate, cocoa powder, roast malt, burnt toast, treacle, dark chocolate Hob Nobs. Quite a long, bitter finish, not that full in the mouth. Good stuff.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2015 Wow! This is a VERY good brew. I’ve heard this called a black IPA...its not. It’s more like a porter with a little more hop bitterness...but barely. Nose is roast malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Very full body with a chewy mouth-feel. Bittersweet hop and dark coffee aftertaste. Very unique....very tasty!

Draught @ Fermentoren, Århus. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, expresso, dried dark fruit. Flavor is light sweet, malty, coffee, cookies, licorice, dried fruit, light alcohol. Medium body, soft carbonation, light warming alcohol in the finish. Very nice, in a good way feels a little stronger than the 7,5% ABV. 260215
