3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Travlr, thanks. Pours cola black with a small head. Aroma has cola, hops, citrus, grapefruit notes, notes of dark wort, sweetened bread and caramel malts, a bit of buttery notes. The aroma feels a bit dusty. Taste is malty sweetness and chocolate notes up front, then hops kick in and provide bitterness and citrusy grapefruit notes, has a dry yeast thing going and the finish, lingering hoppy bitterness and coffee notes. Decent, but a pretty meh black IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle sample at Beer Enthusiast release tasting, Bergen. Has a black colour, with its beige head it could’ve been a dark roasted coffee I had in my glass. The aroma is fantastic with a touch of some chocolate roast, chocolate truffles, coffee, dried fruit, and some cola. Much Chocolate is in the taste, and feels not unlike coffee mocha. More dried fruit that sends me in the direction of port wine. A truly good and great beer, and feels beautifully smooth in the mouth. Incredibly easy-drinking in relation to the ABV.

Pours black. Tan head. Both hop and malt aroma. Thick mouthfeel. Balanced, but I actually feel that it lacks a bit of character. Too balanced maybe. But very, very good!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2012 Bottled: Pours deep brown with a medium sized beige head, leaving a fair lacing.Nose of citrus, grapefruits and slightly toasted malts. Sweet flavor with citrus, grape fruit and a fine malt back bone of roast, nuts and licorice. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry with some bitterness. Rewieved and this time it was mutch better, maybe this is the difference from a little tasting glass and a sniffer at home(?)
