Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen 15/7-14. Malty and really hoppy with light light roasted notes, grapefruity, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and hoppy.

Black in the glass with a cola colored head. Wonderful spicy citrus hops aroma. More spicy citrus on the palate that morphs into a burnt pizza crust flavor. There is a bit of a minty citrus note in the aftertaste. Overall, nice and easy drinking but still complex... and not too pricy either!

Pours an oily black with a big tan head that holds well and leaves ample lacing; juicy citrus aromas on the noise; a hoppy hit than a coffee dark ale infusion finishing with a classic IPA finish. Complex.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Draught @ Flying Saucer, Addison.
Thick dark pour, full head. Full flavoured, smooth and thick because of the rye I guess, mild vanilla, heavy hop finish. Glorious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is a burnt grain and fresh rye combination with some hints of sweet berries. It’s a dark, near-opaque, oily caramel brown with a thick tan head. The head reduces down to a thick ring and leaves an above average, puffy lacing. It’s highly burnt bitter (60 IBU seems likes an underestimate) with a light sweetness. The average amount of active carbonation helps the thicker texture to go down. It’s a full body with a light finish of dark fruit, some spice, caramel, and rye, but the aftertaste is heavily smokey and burnt - almost charred - with a dull spiciness.

Bottle. Basically a perfectly balanced black rye ipa. Chocolate, citrus, dark fruit, light rye spice that comes in and out, medium carb, dark semi-rich malts on the feel, dry finish. Very complex and balanced for so much going on.
