3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from MrHangover, euro Swap 5. Thanks! Black color, thick dense, brown head. Licorice, roastedness, salt, yeast, hops in aroma. Flavor is sweet with roasted malt, citrus, licorice, yeast and woody notes. Very dry finish. Full bodied, heavy stuff. Perhaps on the sweeter side for me . Massive beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABC Beers. Deep black pour with tan-moka foam. Aroma is quite roasty, intense piney hops, lots of herbal licorice notes, light molasses. Taste is bitter, roasty, licorice root, slightly smoky, resinous piney bitterness, a bit harsh. Palate is full bodied, creamy, well dosed alcohol. Not bad, but a bit too harsh.

x ml sample, thanks veliemboys. Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma of strong salty licorice, resin and raspberries. Rich flavour of roasted malts, strong citrusy bitterness, biscuit, grapefruit and rather sweet fruitiness as well. Almost full bodied and a long, lingering bitter, warming finish. Heavy stuff. Great.

Pours black color with a small beige head. Aroma is burnt and malty, some mild licorice notes, roastiness, faint chocolate and distant coffee.

Pours pitch black with a thick light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, grassy hoppiness, citrus, dark chocolate and dark fruitness. Taste is smooth, lingering bitter, roasty, hoppy and citrusy with some grassy notes, dark chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Finish is fizzy, hoppy and roasty with some lingering bitterness and notes of licorice, dark chocolate and grassy hoppiness. Quite heavy black IPA, but pretty good still.
