3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at The Rover, Göteborg, on July 26, 2012
Very dark brown to black color, thick dense light brown head. Dominating citrus fresh hops scent. Hoppy, bitter, citrus taste. Dry, bitter, pine, citrus, chalk aftertaste. Medium to spritzy mouthfeel, high bitterness. Lasting bitterness that linger.
Personally it would have been even better with hints of roasted malt coming through in both scent and taste, not overly bitter, not too hopped, enjoyable and nice.

Schwer und schokoladig mit einem ordentlichen Schuss an Aromahopfen. Dahinter noch Karamell, Kaffee und Roestaromen. Volle Koerper mit einer gewissen Dicke im Abgang und einer uberraschenden Bitterkeit ganz zum Schluss. Nicht schlecht.

Black, with a creamy tan head.
Licorice, chocolate, bread, citrus aroma.
Bitter coffee malt, licorice, resin/grapefruit-peel taste.
Quite bitter...with an underlying, over-ripe fruit aspect that detracts from the overall experience....starts to taste a bit "off" at finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black pour with a solid frothy beige head. Nice lacing. Coffee, overripe fruity, some alcohol and grapefruit hoppy aroma. Full body. tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Average to soft carbonation with a creamy texture. Coffee, chocolate, overripe fruity, mild resinous and grapefruit hoppy flavor. The overripe (almost rotten) fruity stuff were a bit disturbing.
