3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle at Lost Property. Great to see Swedish beers here, especially for a Dutch price (€3,50). Black colour, rocky light beige head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, moccha, a bit milky. Flavour is a lot less sweet than expected, lots of hard roasted malts, light ashy, firm grapefruit bitterness, light bitter chocolate, cold coffee, good hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel. Good beer, more a hoppy porter than a Black IPA imo.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 30.04.2013
Aroma is somewhat light with resin, some vanilla, porridge and hints of fruits. Flavour is rather rich on resin. Also licorice, hops and some ash. A black IPA high on hops, reminds me of Amager Double Black IPA – but this one isn’t that aggressive.

Pours dark brown, almost black with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, grainy malts, hints of fruits and roastiness. Taste is grainy and malty with hints of roastiness and fruity hops. Finish is malty and grainy with some fruity hops. Okay, a bit unbalanced black IPA. Too grainy and malty.
