4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus infused IPA pours dark brown smells hoppy but drinks incredibly smooth tastes like 6% but could put a few down with ease!

Den nye dreng i klassen. Sort IPA. Har smag af bŚde ristet malt og humle, men ikke rigtig amerikansk IPA.

Love the style but not this one in particular. While I respect the uniqueness and complexity, I'm wondering where the "power" is

Cor marrom quase negra com sedimentos grosseiros em suspensão; espuma bege de baixa formação e média persistência com excelente lacing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body, stable head, looks nice. Fruity, malty, bitterness but not very fresh, rather sweaty. Far from a Belgian ale, donít get me wrong, but itís not super clean. Chocolate palate, medium bitter. Simple ending. Itís nice. (33cl bottle brought from California by Flavia, many thanks!)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle brewed in Saratoga Springs, NY. (World Market) Chattanooga, TN.
Dark reddish brown colour with a small light tan head.
Dark malt, oatmeal, mild smokey notes, bacon (?) and mild hops in the aroma.
The flavour is toasted malt, mild hops, mild bitterness, chocolate and some sweetness. A bit thin but otherwise quite nice Black IPA.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A black beer with a small beige head. The aroma is roasted and smoky malt with citrus. The flavor is burnt and pith, like a burned chocolate orange candy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with lacing head into Sprecher pint glass. It seems strange to get such a citrusy nose with a ale that looks like a porter. The flavor gives way to a robust smokey/charred flavor with a tinge of orange. It is quite pleasant and I was expecting this at all.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"Seems that a. this wasnít fresh (or just poor quality) and b. there wasnít enough good things going on. Floaties galore, followed by a nice hearty black roasted aroma with faint orange. Flavor and feel don;t match...too thin and the flavor is weak, and a little off/tart. Iíve had too many far superior in the style to try this again."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer of month club. Pours dark brown with some foam that quickly recedes. Nose is subtle but has pine/citrus of IPA with a touch of roasted malts. Taste has some roasted malt up front, then citrus and I do taste the orange peel which blends reasonably well with the hops on the finish. Not bad.
