3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with even thickish head. Grapefruit, orange rind, toffee, malt in the aroma. Some citrus in the taste with a soft burt bitterness that’s pleasant. Nice palate with medium carbo. A nice beer that’s both tangy and bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark, black, well foamed. Roasty dry chocolate, sweet licorice on nose. Lightish body, coffee espresso roastyness, some chocolate. Well, dark it is, well bittered and dry, but didn’t find much of hops in flavour that I would take as the difference between a dry stout and a black IPA. Ok drink, but not much more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Again big thanks to quack-duck for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark black, huge head. Malty, shy smokey aroma. Starts mild, more and more intense malty, light earthy-stouty. Light hoppy-dry background. Finish dominated by malty-stouty notes, modest woody. Not bad!

Pours dark black with a creamy beige head. Aromas of roasted malt, mild coffee, cereal, whole bread and hints of spice. The taste is a well balanced light bitter beer with black malt. The beer is easily drinkable as its light but leaves behind a a good bitter taste. The finish is long leaving you with hints of roasted malt and mild bitterness. A very light and easy drinking Black IPA with mild bitterness..
