2014-10-09. Black body with a small creamy brown head. 3++ Aroma of celery and green leafy hops. Flavour is a pleasant melange of green hops and roast malt, with light caramel touches. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Cellared longer than might have been wise but it is quite enjoyable. Bottle from forgotten bottleshop, NYC

DuffMan (7633) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy, just inside the best before date. Near black pour topped by a lively brown head. Smells like a pine forest, coniferous perfumes permeate the air. Very hop-forward profile, tons of fresh pine, underlying roast malts are there if you’re looking. Full bodied, very bitter. Beautiful.

phaleslu (7386) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2013
500 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm, who got it from sloth- thanks again, Chris and Bert! Bottled 9/3/13. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a big rocky tan head that laces the glass. Aroma of earthy, piney hops, roasted and toasted malts, dark chocolate, and leaves. The flavor pretty much follows suit. Medium-bodied, with a bitter, toasty, dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice black IPA.
