4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pitch black, cloudy , hughe not that smooth light brown head, a little fluffy.
superstrong aroma, one of those beers you can smell half a meter away. Very nice flowery quite roasted, hoppy, sweet, dry aroma, faint lemongrass, coffe, delicious.
flavor is hops and coffe. the hop part of the flavor is well balanced mostly pine and grapefruit, the roasted stuffy coffe part is very dry, and lasts into the aftertaste. this is a very hoppy stout indeed. hoppier than most ipa’s.
With the agressive hops profile i think this will become a hate/love beer.

Pours black with a brown head and aroma of hops and light roasted coffee. Taste has nice hoppy, citrus, grass, grapefruit notes come through first with roasted malt and coffee notes that come in, leading to a dry, hoppy, burnt finish. Nice black IPA, the citrusy hops and the roasted coffee chocolate notes go together nicely

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a light tan head. The aroma has coffee, roast, mild chocolate and light cream. It has a medium body that is lightly rough and has lightly abrasive carbonation. The flavor begins with coffee, earthy hops, roasty malt and cocoa. The finish has lots off coffee bitterness. Pretty nice, but a more coffee than I would have liked.

500ml bottle shared. Poured a nice black body with a little ring for head. The aroma was very good, coffe and roasted right in the face. Never smelled the hops though... The taste wasn’t what I expected. Tons of roasted notes, with the coffee only slighlty there.. The alcohol was also present.. not what I was expecting but a nice beer nontheless!

Pitch black full body with a nice brown lasting head. The smell is smoke and roasted dark coffee with a hint of grass hops. You taste burnt coffee, smoke and just a bit dark chocolate. Smoke covers everything except of the coffee though.
