3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized, vast creamy to beige orange tinting colored foamy head on top of a hazy to murky orange/amber to brown colored beer.
Not the BIPA look, ay....
The aroma has a nice hoppy and flower tone with some floral grassy tones, some carbo gass, light malty, some hop fruits, light toast and a hint of some liquorice/bay leaf tones.
Flavours of toast, herbs, light roast, malts, bitters, some caramel/bread, leaves, light hoppy as in grapefruit, some floral tones and grass and a light spicy edge. BIPA as in Brown IPA... Hmmm... It suits... I guess...
Aftertaste is a bit spicy with some nice bitters (quite lingering), grass, malts, hops and some grapefruit.
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture.
Not the typical black (!) IPA, but still I quite enjoyed this beer. A good hopped toasted amber ale.
