Bottle with Linh. Pours a deep brownish body with thick light brown lacing. Aroma is somewhat funky, earthy pine and raisin bread. Mouthfeel is medium and soft with notes of bready fruit, malt, light banana bread, pine hop and resin.

Look: equal thick 2 thumb high off white foam; very slow retention, stays on top. Dark brown/black color, some subtle amber notes. Looks delicious. Lots of lacing, couple of yeast float around. Hard to see any carbonation.

Smell: Piney, herbs, citrus, grapefruit, woody/cedar maybe some fruity hops. Then comes the roasted, sweet, little creamy malt. Good balance. Some hints of tart, dark chocolatish.

Taste: Grapefruit, lime go to roasted sweet, caramel middle malt (intensity of malt taste rises with temperature). After with good balance of piney and roasted bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, crisp carbonation, still kinda silky, dry finish. Alcohol undetected, stupidly easy to drink - i like.

Overall: Gets better every sip/degree of temperature. Good dark IPA, easy to drink; what stands out is the balance - neither hop nor roasted malt stand out or overwhelm.

Schokoladenmalziger Antrunk, der blumige Hopfen ist gleichauf. Süßlich, süffig, vollmundig. Dann steigende Kaffeenoten, sowohl hopfiger als auch herber werdend, sehr süffig. 11/12/12/12/7/12

330ml bottle from Brewdog online shop. Pours black with a thick tan head, good lacing. Aromas of citrus, pine, light funk, roast malt. Taste brings a herbal note, more bitterness from hops, light sweetness. Creamy texture, long finish. Nice.

Torrefacto (556) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 15, 2013
Color caoba oscuro con espuma beige. Aromas de chocolate, café, resinas. en boca predominan toques de chocolate y resinas al final. Quizá fuera cosa de la que probe yo, o de cómo secme sirvió pero tenía un poso excesivo, por lo demás muy rica.

Vells (696) - Riga, LATVIA - DEC 7, 2013
Huge disappointment. Need to stuff nose into glass to catch something in aroma. Some roasted malts, some hops, bit fruity, bit choco.. Cant call this good balance.. just plain Sweetish with bttersweet finish. Not disaster, but price/performance - bad

Very sweet. Plenty of caramel in the malt. Didn’t even realise it was a black ipa until now. I had it down as a sweet stout although i was impressed by the sharp, rounded hops. Very smooth. Overall a little sweet for my taste.
