4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black liquid with a good tanned head. It looks like a perfect stout.
Roasted malts in nose, but also some hops.
In mouth you find roasted malts, some alcohol and a bitter finish.
Its more like a strong porter than a black IPA. Really easy to drink.

RBAG, I think it was Sid’s bottle. Deep brown. Aroma is chocolate and citrus fruit. Fruity hops are quite present, but some coffee too. I dont know what an IPAporter is, but it sure sounds close to black ipa. This was interesting, but. not amazing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Festival Cervezorama, Madrid. Looking quite dark with a thin to medium head. Aroma is herby, trees, hops and fruits. Is this really an imperial porter? So much hops in here makes this almost a black ipa.
