3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Countbeer. Pours an opaque black with a small beige head. Hard roast malts in the nose with a herbal hoppiness. Medium body, hard roast, bitter chocolate and coffee with a malty bitter finish. There’s certainly hops in here, but they don’t really shine, so the end result is more of a bitter Porter really. 250812

Flavour is roasted malts, toasted notes, toffee, mild floral and fruityness as well. Very pleasant. Leaves a long ashy and floral aftertaste. For once a nice Black IPA.
