3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A dense, two-finger dark beige head forms over a dark reddish brown body. The aroma has a faint Belgian touch I think, with roasted malts, licorice notes and some prunes. Some dark sugar too. It’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, quite dry. Roasted malts, licorice, dried fruits and some yeast in the flavor, along with a nice bitterness. Lasting finish. Not your average Black IPA, but it’s nice anyway. 150524
