3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours dark mahogany with a sturdy tan head. Aroma is very floral with a lot of fresh hops, strong liquorice and some raisiny stuff too; lots of booze as well. The balance between hops and dark, roasted malts is quite good. Very aromatic, dry and slighty perfume-ish. I might be wrong, but I think I smell simcoe.. Taste is boozy on the touch, but develops nicely over a burnt caramel sweetness into a dry and quite bitter finish. Full bodied and nicely balanced.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
40 cl from Smoke Ring tap, served in a jar. Dark copper/light brown, slightly hazy, with a thick ring of off-white foam. Not much in the aroma, mainly roasted malts, chocolate, some bourbon like qualities, booze, a hint of soap. Definitely better in the mouth: quite boozy upfront, but not in a harsh way, just warming the throat. Solid level of bitterness, both grassy and citrusy, Silky bitter dark chocolate, a hint of coffee and brown sugar. Pleasent resinous aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium to full body, slightly oily texture. This is a true BIPA, and quite a good one as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A coarse big-bubbled choco/beige head, resting upon a very dark ruby brown see-trough body. Bold hop aroma; Piny hop oils, citrus zest and some quite nice berry tones. Light body for such a big beer. The "black" is more evident in the flavor. No overpowering roasted tones. Some grainy choco flavors and hint of mild to medium roasted dark malts. Heavy bitterness, Earth and pepper. Mouth-drying bitter finish. Good thing! [Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika]
