3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle looks interesting. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Dry-hoppy aroma. Starts the same, dry and hoppy. Modest bitter. Some fruity hints. Finish more and more stout-like, less dry, intense malty. Quite drinkable. Nice!

Bottle bought in Copenhagen, June 2012.
Darker brown with a medium head. I think that this beer was nicely balanced, hops and roasted malt. Also chocolate and some dark chocolate. Pleasant, dry and bitter finish.

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a small light beige head. Nose is mild grass, licorice, pine and hints of cocoa, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate, pine, spruce, cocoa and hints of grains and coffee. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty decent, although I think this might be a bit too old.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I got kossed by Papsoe with this 330 ml. bottle. Thanks H! It pours a murky dark brown with a large tan head. The nose has a bit of light pine and anise. The flavor has some pumpernickel, rye, anise, and that pine note. A little maltier than most of the black IPAs I’ve tried, but I like it. It seems to move it a hair closer to a porter and that’s okay with me. Delightfully different.
