3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of chrisv10. Pours an opaque deep dark coffeeish brown with an beige head. The nose has lovely citrusy aroma hops. Medium body, subtle roast, great juicy aroma hops. But as with the pale version this is simply too dry for me and appears unbalanced. I prefer my IPA’s with a little more residual sweetness - this is simply too dry. 020412

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at Linköping Beer Expo. Spun the wheel and got a sample that poured hazy dark brown. There’s a huge gooseberry and lychee aroma. Dryish with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Salty with licorice and grapefruit - lots of grapefruit. Some chocolate in a heavily salty, very bitter finish where ink comes close. Would have been fun to try the dark and the pale version side by side, but as it seems to be a sales gimmick to not reveal what beer you’re buying that seems difficult to do.

20th October 2012
Opaque black beer, big pale tan-cream head. Airy crisp palate. Minerals. Smooth smooth dark malt. Semi sweet pine and a little candy fruits. Whisper of sherbet and a touch of Parma Violets sweets. Well buried is a trace of coffee. A little orange on the back end and a dash of lime. Finishes semi dry with a piney bitter linger. A complex and tasty black ipa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A dense beige head leaves lacings. More or less black body, looking really good. The aroma is lightly roasted, with some chocolate. Green pine cones too. Roasted and bitter flavor with pine cones, citruspeel and some chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied and soft on the palate, and with a roasted and quite bitter finish. A nice Black IPA I could certainly drink more of, but I’d still prefer it less roasted. 121116
