DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
12oz bottle, shared with DanielCoor. Dark brown, slightly red color. More clear around the edges, but from a reasonable distance, more than dark enough for a black IPA. Medium body. More dry texture. Good, super-smooth lighter carbonation. Nice piney, lightly earthy, light herbal hop aroma. Good, light roasted malt aroma, a nice balanced amount. Lightly toasty, just a hint of burnt / ashiness. Good herbal bitterness, light sweet taste in the finish. Very tasty aftertaste. Super good, drinkable, and tasty. Was not expecting that, as I was told that this was less than fresh. Very fresh, assertive, citrusy piney nose. Much better than expected, very solid

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some nice pine, grass, some slight orange in there as well, some slight roast. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, roast, coffee, hints of orange and grapefruit, finishing slightly sweet, slightly bitter.

355 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is quite nice with citric fruits, some salmiac, dark malts, subtle cocoa notes too. Flavor is bitter malty, dark fruits, lemon, hops, subtle resin notes and mild grapefruits. Refreshing, leans just the right amount to the fruity side. Nice.
