3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB , courtesy of rosenberg, 20140315) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had liquorice, coffee and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burntness, fruitiness, pine, ash and bitterness. Afteraste was burnt, hoppy and bitter. A very burnt brown ale, thin hoppy stout or a burnt black IPA. Despite the style the end result was confusing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark bodied, smooth head. Dough, palm sugar, smooth coffee beans, mild hop base. Smooth bitterness, nice dark malts yet accessible. Like a classic French (or Belgian) Dark ale yet smoother malts and better hopped. Very nice. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Dark brown - almost black - colour with a big fluffy light tan head.
Mild hops, mild bitterness, mildly roasted malt and mild creamy sweetness. Black IPA aroma. The flavour is dry bitter hops, roasted malt, some sweetness and hell of a lot dryness... some coffee there too (and it’s not disturbing...). Me likey. Dry aftertaste.
