4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black, dense, creamy and tan head - leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is smooth coffee and distinct floral to grapefruity hoppy. Initial flavour impression is an overload of hops. As the tastebuds start to adjust to this the smooth coffee becomes more apparent. A bit lighter body texture than the normal Beer Geek Breakfast. The combination of the dark malt, solid grapefruity hops and coffee really gives a nice black ipa. Bitter, dry, fruity and slight herbal coffee flavoured finish. Lovely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has notes of hops and lots of roasted malt, and coffee, the hops lending it notes of dust and citrus. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, astringent citrusy hops, roasted malt, and chocolate, leading to an extremely bitter finish - even a bit too much for a hophead. Over the top for my liking.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours pitch black with a dense light brown head. Lovely and intense hop aroma - very fresh. Medium body, hard roasted malts - burned - very dark chocolate notes, lots of coffee as well. And then come those amazing hop accents again. Massive bitterness in the finish from both hops and burned malts. Very good stuff indeed. 090410

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Black color; small brownish head. Nice coffee aroma, deep; light manure too, and finally some citrusy hops too. The mouthfeel is lean and dry, also because of an extreme presence of heavily roasted malts; with the roasted malts, also ashes and light tar; the final, both for the high bitterness and the burnt malts, is too unbalanced. Difficult.

28th June 2010
Opaque black beer. Thick frothy tan head. Light piney grassy hop nose. Softish palae, fairly dry. Creamy roasted malt, hint of coffee. Alongside is piney grassy hops, fresh. Finishes dry with bitterness from the roasted malt and the hops. The roasted malt and the hops are 2 different aspects rather than a seamless whole but it’s very drinkable.
