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.

Bottle. Pours black with a little head. Very chocolately and malty, not a lot of hops for an IPA. Meh.

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
