50cl bottle at home from beerritz, uk. Body is dark brown, head is small, beige, slightly fizzy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Nose is light roasty, flavor is mild coffee, light licorice, spices, vanilla, watery. Light sweet, medium bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium bitter, later hoppy. Medium body, thin dry texture, average carbonation. Easy roasty beer, boring first, quite good later.

Patjeadam (74) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2014
A very pleasant black ipa. The smell is a bit underwhelming, the first taste is a little fleeting. The taste itself is very good with bitter roasted malts and coffee with fresh flowery hops. The aftertaste is pleasant, not very long. Very good taste, but a little bit small aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)
