4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark colour with big and fluffy beige head. Intensive aroma of citrus(lots of grapefruit!), roasted malts, dark bread, chocolate and minimal alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet on the beginning and very hoppy and bitter aftertward. Finish is extremely long and really bitter. Despite of strong bitterness, it’s well balanced and quite drinkable. Fantastic example of strong black IPA.

Very dark, black with hints of brown. Nice brown head. Aroma has chocolate, roast and slight caramel, maybe. Taste coffee turns into roastiness. Very bitter but the sweetness covers it well. After taste is very dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep brown with medium, light brown head. Medicore head retention and lacing. Nice medium aroma of caramel mixed with dried, black fruits (mainly rasins, plums) - like plum in a chocolate. At first I’d say semi-sweet, but later on it turns into medium to high bitter. Medium to full body, oily and sticku texture, average carbonation, finish is semi-dry and short bitter. Medium alcohol warming. In overall different black IPA, with high ABV, well balanced and highly drinkable. Be aware of it !!!

Bottle, 50cL. Home. A very dark brown beer ; light red garnett hues through the light ; big beige creamy head ; great retention. Aroma of resin, herb, fruit (blackberry, black currant), toast. Medium sweet balanced with medium to heavy bitter ; light dry ; light warming. Full body, oily medium texture, average to soft carbonation, fruity dry finish, warming background. Overall, intense fruity aroma ; powerful ; a bit too much oily for me.
