75cl bottle shared. Pours very dark reddish brown with a beautiful beige head leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is mostly light tropical and candied fruits with an unpleasant acidic note that fades away as the beer warms up. Taste starts with a faint sweetness followed by roastiness, coffee, some bitterness. Almost nothing to support the roasted component, maybe due to the bottle age (exp. 08/2015) that could have killed the hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. Disappointing.

shorg1 (6) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 16, 2015 does not count
Pours black, with white head. More roasty than hoppy notes in nose. Hoppy start with citrus and tropical notes, roasty, coffee finish. Could be more bitter.

Almost black, a head is creamy, beige and head. Aroma is roasted, piney, slightly fruitful, also liquirice and some aging woodness. Taste is roasted, some coffee, pine, hint of fruits, medium bitteness that is long lasting. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Basig good beer but nothing else.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Draught, 23 Club, Liverpool. Pitch black looks with a tan crown. Decent hoppy snout in tandem with some roast and choc notes. Flavour was a similar yarn with some nice tropical/citrus fruits in the mix. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel and scores highly on drinkability. Dryish lingering bitter finish. Cracking BIPA from a top class brewery.
