3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #5. Pours to a medium head with a red hue and black color. Aroma of grapefruit and smokiness. Light tasting and a little sweet for a true IPA. Solid beer, but not among better Black IPAs I've had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber-brown. Aroma has a lot of woody, grapefruity hop character and also a fair bit if toasty malt. The body is a bit lagerish, like a dunkel and the toasty-grapefruity dynamic reminds me of the old American Brown idea from the mid-90s (Pete’s Wicked Ale, etc.). Decent brew, if a few phenols creeping in the back.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown in colour, deep red highlights. Big creamy beige head, big lace rings. Hoppy nose, big citrus. Roasted malts in the mouth, earthy, bit of dark chocolate. Some late bitterness, a little black coffee, pine and earth aftertaste. Light body, carbonation is soft. A nice hoppy black lager that drinks very easily.

Marron foncer avec innée petite mousse beige. L’arôme du malt torréfié et houblon. Le goût est d’abord du malt torréfié puis un amertume moyenne et constant. Carbonisation moyenne/haut.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewery
Dark mahogany color with small creamy head. Mild aroma of dark caramel and nuts. Dry mouthfeel, flavor of dark caramel, roasted nuts, light cereals, light chocolate. Fairly strong bitterness, there is some hop quality although it gets hidden in these beers; hint of coffee in the final.
Balanced, lean, not ashy, interesting.

Thanks to Reimer96 for this. Pours dark with frothy off white head and good lacing. Aroma is lightly roasted malts with a small soapy in the nose. Taste is light body, light roast and light pine hops. Nice easy drinking, not overpowering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Clear deep dark cola copper, big lasting frothy tan head. Sweet dark roasted malt, floral aroma. Taste is sweet toasty malts with a mild floral hop bitterness, some citrus, spice and light caramel. Lively carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Sweetens a bit too much as it warms.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark brown with an average sized tan head that leaves some lace on the glass. Aroma is citrus, crisp roasted malts, and maybe some faint noble hops. Flavour is crisp roasted malt, resin, grapefruit, coffee notes and lightly spicy.
