3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. The pour is a dark dark brown or light black with some deep deep red around the edges. There is a nice thin light tan head and some spotty lace. The aroma is big and roasty. There is some light coffee and toffee notes and perhaps a little licorice and a nice light citrus hint on the back end. There definitely aren't the hops that I'd expect. The flavor is very similar. Very roasty up front with a nice bitter hint and the flavor morphs through a good caramel like phase and gets bitterly hoppy on the far back. The mouth feel is good. Not too thin and not overly carbonated. The aftertaste is dry, bitter, and yet somewhat hoppy at the same time. Pretty good.

Svart vätska med brun krona. Doft av knäck och choklad. Smaken är kraftfull med bra beska. Är normalt ingen fan av riktigt mörk öl, men denna va bra.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the tap an opaque coffee brown with a thin tan head. Aroma had notes of roast malt and quality coffee plus a snip of hops. Flavor has rich mocha and hop notes, like the best stout mixed with the best IPA, plus caramel, nutty, earthy and licorice tones and a fruity hint. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Firm texture is quite smooth and quite fizzy, leaving a hoppy mocha finish. Don’t fade away, drink one!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into a tulip. Dark doesn’t begin to describe it, as the light on my phone couldn’t pierce the blackness. Off-white foamy head that dissipated a little sooner than I would have expected based on other reviews. Smells of chocolate, coffee, plum and licorice. Burnt coffee and chocolate predominate the initial taste, but turns to hoppy bitterness that lingers. A bit of carbonation, but it really coats the tongue. I’m not really sure what this beer is trying to be. I don’t dislike it, but it feels a little muddled.

Draught@RNH. Dark brown color, small brownish head. Woody, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Woody hoppyness, some bitterness, coffee roasted flavors, some licorce. Quite plain Black IPA, I like this less than the ratings here.
