Bottle at la Cave à Bulles, Paris, courtesy of Brendon
Black color with brown rim; medium sized compact head. The aroma is very hoppy, pungent, resiny, piney; really wonderful. Lean body; it starts with a mix of roasted malt and dark chocolate, then resiny hops bitterness, finally. Long roasty final.
Very good, unbalanced nevertheless.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed at the Black Friday Tasting courtesy of swillbur pouring up deep mahogany supporting up a tan like foam head. The aroma offers up pine and grapefruit like hoppiness as well as dark roasted malts and a bit of spicy black strap molasses. The taste is refreshingly good with some dark roasted malts, citrusy grapefruit hops, pine hops and hints of cherry like sweet dark fruity esters. D-Lish Black IPA.
