3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a beige head. Lemon and coffee with dark chocolate in aroma. Some dark chocolate and lots of roasted notes in taste. Really smooth. Has to be one of the better black ipa that has come along so far. I mean the the aroma is just breathtaking, good looking on the whole as it also leaving a nice lacing on the glass and last but not least, the taste is just awesome as well, filled with roasted and grassy notes. Grassy bitter, light fruit and some chocolate in finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black, although it looks watery, with a chocolate frothy head. Aroma of roasted malt and slight hint of pine. Flavour of roast malt with underlying coffee and dark chocolate. Dry lingering aftertaste. More of a watery porter than an IPA to it, doesn’t taste it’s strength.
