Bottle @ deans crappy music tasting. Aroma is roast, some hops, slight sweaty note and citrus. Flavour has a slight weird sourness, roast, something unplaceable. Every sip I like it more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Deanso’s crappy music tasting. Poured a deep mahogany with a broken tan head. The flavour is bitter with lots of liqourice, a little sour which sticks in the palate and into the aftertaste. Not quite what I was expecting but an amazing beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark brown with a red tint and a lasting beige somewhat lacy head. Smells of citrus hops grapefruit, roast, and caramel malt. Medium oily body with faint carbonation. Tastes of roasted malt, liquorish bitterness with a strange amount of sour hops. It’s a stout IPA. The hops mixed with stout is new to me.
