3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, booze, light pine, light IPA qualities. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head. Taste is sweet, roasted malt, some bitter hops, maybe lactose, coffee, a lot more stout than IPA. Mouthfeel is medium body with light carbonation, a bit of hops in the aftertaste. Overall, as a Black IPA, this is disappointing. I’d say it’s more reminiscent of a hoppy porter. Still drinkable.

Guiness meet my little friend the the double IPA.
This is a muddy alcoholic hop fest.
Very well balanced bitterness, like a guiness, with the same coffee notes, but super malty and alcoholic. Really like it!!

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.
