Bottle, bought @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours completely black with a big, staying, creamy, light-beige head. Aroma has lots of pleasant citrus, grapefruit, resiny. Fresh. Nice mild roasted notes. Medium carbonation, pleasant dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Fairly light. Flavour is elegant, mild sweetness, softly roasted with some liqourice. Nice peachy, light piney, grapefruity hops with a nice citrus centre. Lovely lingering bitter finish, where the malt bill comes into its own. Lovely Black IPA.
