An interesting combination of stout and IPA. Nothing sticks out, smooth taste. Not too bright.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark brown, almost black with light beige head. Aroma is roasted, nutty, fruity and licorice. Flavour is roasted, heavy bitter, medium sweet, licorice and bitttteeer. Nice but one bottle of this will be enough for every night. Very bitter stuff. Medium to heavy carbonation which is almost too much for this one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Penetrating, floral, tangy aroma. The taste is roasty and hoppy, with the stout taking the lead despite it being just 1/3 of the mix. I wouldn’t have guessed that this is a mix of 2 different releases, but it seems like something is just a little off, like it does whenever you blend beers. Big foamy head. A fair amount of coffee in the taste, and some acidity too. Good, but not a favorite.
