2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE Jan 20 2013 [the sticker on the bottle tells 20130531 but the printing on the neck tells the earlier date], courtesy of rosenbergh, 20121214) The beer poured deep dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had malts, chocolate, sweetness and hops. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour had roasted malts, sweetness, liquorice, lighlty hop flavours and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, roasty and bitter. Not an IPA and not a stout either; some weird combination of the style not showing any of the good characteristics really.

Flaska. Svart öl med svagt cappuccinofärgat skum. Doftar rostade nötter, russin och mörk choklad. Torkad frukt, nötter och choklad i smaken. Ytterst svag beska. Kolsyrig munkänsla.

Botella, thanks yespr. Deep dark brown colour. Roasty malty chocolate hoppy fruity aroma. Pleasant flavour of roasty malt, chocolate, dark fruit, hoppy fruitiness and with a good bitterness. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It pours an unclear, dark brown body and a small, off-white head. It’s quite roasted on the nose, with chocolate and some burnt hints. A touch of hops in the far back. Medium to full body, dry, with flavors of roasted malts and caramel. A nice bitterness kicks in towards the end. I expect much more hoppyness in a Black IPA. In addition, it was quite boring even if considered as a Porter or a Stout. 121110
