3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Ølfestival 2011. It pours a clear, copper colored body and a small, tan head. Roasted hints on the palate, with citrus, pineapple and resins. Roasted, caramel maltyness with resiny hops, some pine cones and sweetish notes. Dry, medium to full body. Roasted finish with bitterness. A bit sweet I think, and not your everyday black ipa, more of a brown ipa in color at least, but it’s quite pleasant and tasteful. 110527
