3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at HaandFestival 2012. Looking quite nice in the glass, with its dark brown, almost black body and moderately sized beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with some dried fruits and a sort of smoked mackerel touch. There are hops too, but not enough I think. That goes for the flavor too, the lack of hops I mean, with some citrus peel and bitterness, but it’s mostly on the malty side, with dried fruits and some roasted malts. A little sweetness too. Full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, finishing with a nice blend of roasted malts and bitterness. A slightly weird one, not the typical Black IPA, but sure drinkable. 120504

Great aroma of tropical fruits (mostly mango), with hints of citrus fruits and resin.
Fairly high bitterness, very little roast in the flavor. Rather dry.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black. Heavy spicy and piney hop aroma. Full malty flavour with some roasted character in addition to the hops. Liquorice notes. Sweet taste with medium bitterness. Full-bodied, with a soft texture. Overall, a great black IPA. I love IPAs with a malt character that matches the hops. This is bordering on a very hoppy stout.

Bread dough yeast whiff or of the bottle. Aroma in the glass is sweet and olive like. Almost no head. First in the mouth is sweet and alcoholic. Felt like a barley wine. Middle is bitter but not over the top. Roasting is last and lasting. Overall is rather rich and full on.
