4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
10-MAR-2012, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken".
Pours very dark brown, almost black with huge beige head that lasts and coats the glass.
Very hoppy nose. Grape fruit and pine. OK, some roasted notes as well, but hops dominate.
Same with the taste but the roasted malts are more evident, thougt. A touch of coffee and chocolate combined with the very strong hop profile.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a small yellow head which quickly disappears. Nose is loads of citrus and milk chocolate. Reminds of orange flavoured chocolate. Taste showcases the citrus and chocolate notes. Quite balanced. A touch of piney hops comes through. Not too bad. A little light on in mouth feel but goes down nicely. Solid

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.
