Bottled@Beer Hunters, Pori. Quite much black colour with a huge beigeish brown head. Aroma is sour wood, mild roasted and toasted notes along with some floral hops. Flavour is ashes, fruits, some tart wood along with mild bitterness to it. Wellbalanced and surprisingly nice for a India Black...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Bottle. At Patricks. A very dark brown beer topped by a beige head. The aroma has a smoked touch, with an almost chocolate-ish maltyness. Piney, fruity hops in the background, I think they could get more focus. The flavor is lighlty sweet, with a pleasant hoppyness to deal with it, but mostly itís bittering hops. Chocolate hints, cold coffee, roasted malts and some almost meaty smoke too. Full-bodied and perhaps a bit too carbonated. Roasted, coffeeish end with a decent bitterness. Another nice and tasteful beer from Haandbryggeriet. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15. 120315
Bottle. A lightly unclear, dark reddish brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma has a dominating chocolate scent, with coffee, roasted notes and a faint bacon-like smoke touch. It lacks a bit on the hops I think, but it works perfectly fine as a porter or something like that. Thereís a nice bitterness in the flavor, some piney and citrusy hops, but itís the chocolatey, bacon-smoked and lightly roasted malts that dominates here as well. Itís full-bodied and faintly warming, sort of sweetish on the palate, and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting roasted and smoked chocolate finish. Thereís not much IPA-ishness going on here, but itís sure a pleasant and tasteful beer. Quality ice cream or mature semi-hard cheese would be a fine pairing I guess. 140506
