DominikDraak (14) - Rijeka, CROATIA - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a pitch black colour with a huge beige head which relatively quickly disappears. Typical IPA aromas are bursting after pouring. The beer smells citrusy, piney, herbal and floral at first, but after a few minutes the malty, roasty, coffee and chocolate aromas are coming out. The flavours is dominated by citrus and coffe, with a malty backbone and notes of chocolate, herbs, lemon... The body is medium with a long dry bitter hoppy finish. Overall: A scholar example of how a black IPA should taste. A hop explosion covered with a smooth malty backbone and balanced with roasted coffe and chocolate flavours. One of the top black IPA on the market and another great brew from Mikkeller.

Brewhemia (188) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2015
Deep brown almost black. Very little head, almost none. Very nice pineapple and apricot aroma with a faint hint of burnt toast. Roasty flavors up front but fruitiness takes over and ends in bitterness. Nice! Low carbonation, but it seems appropriate. I really like it!

11.2 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with full head. Aromas of crushed pine needles, chocolate and roasted malts. Flavors of same with emphasis on bitter pine and citrus. A bit thin even for the style. A good iteration but expecting a bit more from Mikkeller.

Fat på Bishop Gustav Malmö. Smak och doft av choklad, kaffe, citrus, rostad malt och toner av grapefrukt. Fruktig, frisk, lagom sötma, beska med smak av citrusskal och tall.
