4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 FL. OZ bottle from Miorge-Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium.
Aroma is a mixture of cereal and roasted barley. On the end there are notes of floral hops. It pours an impressivly dark, very dark brown.
This beer clearly has a lot of texture. Raosted cereals and coffee/toffee followed by ripe fruits and ends with a coffee finish mixed with a nice noticable bitterness.
Such a nice experience !

Bottle. Inky black with large cramy tan head, roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, starts with a mocha taste and ends with a bitter long finish. The hops aroma is all but lost beneath the mocha. Such an intesting brew from Evil Twin again!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Pours a glossy black with a nice mocha head of foam that crowns the goblet I have poured it into. As the head recedes, it leaves behind a sticky tan lacing. The aroma is lots of roast and some hop bitterness. That is a lot of bitterness between the two. The flavors come together nicely - and don’t clash with one another the way that some black-IPAs do. The finish is also profoundly bitter, which gives this beer some separation from other beers of the type. A nice demonstration of brewing and blending skill.
