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.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Extremely complex, fruity, floral, malty, coffee, caramel, carbonation, hops, dry. I enjoy a black and tan as a porter/IPA but this is completely mixed so there is not flavor continuum here to enjoy. I think I’d like these beers separate better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle 330ml, pitch black with beige head, that is falling quite fast. Aroma is very stoutish and sweet with notes of milk chocolate, vanilla beans and roasted malt. On the other hand the taste is closer to an IPA with some deep going bitterness and medium sweetness. The finish is ashy with a long lasting bitterness of strongly roasted or even burned malt. Alcohol is good hidden.In general not bad, but body could be fuller. The burned afertaste is quite disturbing and I got the impression of eating an ashtray.

Great pour and good color. Little too strong to begin with and becomes smooth in the end.
aroma of roasted grains and the hoppy aroma is not very apparent
