3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
660 ml bottle @ Christianssand Brygghus. A dark amber body with a dense beige head. Aroma of light roasted malt, caramel and fruity hops. Flavor is nice roasted malt, citric fruity with pleasant bitterness. Nothing really complicated here, but delicately balanced mix of dark malt and hops at a modest alcohol level. Nice, tasty, pleasant and impressive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a can from the brewery. Black with a tan head. Grassy aroma. Taste is surprisingly zesty with flavours of grapefruit skin and pine. The roasted flavours are quite mild and well-blended, giving a pleasant choclatey roundness to the taste. A good flavoursome IPA with an interesting twist.

330ml can. Jet black appearance with a one-two finger tan head. Aroma: citrus hops, grapefruit, malt, pine, some roasty/coffee notes. Taste: exactly as the aroma. Really silky smooth palate, bitter finish. Fantastic beer, love the fact it’s session strength as well.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml can bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Looks: Opague blackish brown colour with a cloud of misty yeast particles; One finger head with crumpety beige foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing and near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant rich dark malt, with strong grapefruits, passion fruits, floral, light honey, caramel, strong toffee, cream, chocolate, strong pine, resins, biscuits, yeast, strong lemon and strong grass.
Taste: Light sweet rich dark malt, with strong wheaty tartness, strong grapefruits, floral, caramel, strong toffee, dark chocolates, light cream, light molasses notes, strong pine, resins, dry biscuits, yeast, strong lime, strong bitter hops and sharp grass.
Body: Medium body. Creamy and oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: Undeniably rich dark maltyness in a very smooth and creamy background, despite strong presence of tart wheatyness. A web of strong tastes including grapefruits, toffee, caramel, pine, resins and chocolates linger to the tongue. Biscuity with strong lime to round. Excellent!
Hoppiness: Strong grapefruits, passion fruits, floral, strong pine, resins, strong lemon and strong grass in nose. Strong grapefruits, floral, strong pine, resins, strong lime and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent grassy malty finish.
After Taste: Quite dry. Creamy and chocolate bitter to mouth.
Comments: Session Black IPA, how about that? This one dark maltyness and grapefruit hops are so rich in aroma that they literally fight each other to please my nose. Taste is just as strong and sparkling with distinctive chocolates, toffee and milk being matched closely with grapefruits, lime and ooze. This brewer is specialist in making bone fide session beers. In Moor we trust!
