4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark brown, just this side of black, with a two-finger frothy mocha head that lasted forever and left excellent lace. Earthy hop aromas highlighted by the rye, with hints of citrus, pine, roast and spice. Smooth hop bitterness up front with a rich roasted malt backbone, infused with rye and subtle pine. Medium to full body, gentle effervescence, creamy mouthfeel and a clean finish.

Bottle at a friends house during a party. So much hoppy goodness. The malts were very toasty and roasty. But still hoppy and bitter. Good stuff.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
dark brown colour with ruby notes, large, creamy beige head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of grapefruit, overripe pineapple nd tangerine notes, toasted rye bread, moderate roastedness and hints of mild roasted coffee; taste is the same; I think it would be very hard to brew a more perfectly balanced black IPA; very good!
