3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of earth, olives and pine. The presence of roasted malt is overwhelming, to the point that the alcohol is quite mild despite its abv. Taste is bitter, bitter and bitter. Not much to it. Thick in texture with a long finish. Good beer I guess, I have no objections... but it’s pretty simple. Liquid roasted malt, that’s what it is.

Black color with a small tan head.

The flavor is hoppy bitterness, roasted malt, dark chocolate and ashy dryness.
Bitterness stays. Balanced and tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at MLF. Very nice smell, classic black ipa, cocoa, roasty, pine, little bit of peppery spiciness. Taste is very nice too. More subtle than the aroma. Light chocolate and roast to start then the finish is hoppy, pine and citrus but with the chocolate still bubbling under. Hides the strength well.
