yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
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

tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Flavor is nice, full bitterness in your face at the first sip. When the beer warmed up, more complex flavors start to show and beautifully combine the two characters of malts and hops
