4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Pours almost black with a 2 finger brown frothy head which leaves some lacing on the glass.
Aroma is sweet, hoppy citrusy with exotic fruit yet earthy with roasted malts.
Taste is a bit sweet at first but then has piny hoppiness, milk chocolate, well roasted coffee. Some alcohol shines through when the beer is a bit temperated.
Medium bodied, smooth mouth feel. Finish is bitter and long lasting.
A really nice Cascadian Dark Ale/Black IPA!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. Pretty malty aroma, sweet, caramel, coffee. Malty to the taste, some hops, coffe and licorice. Very bitter finish, medium body. Needs more hops in the taste and lots more in the aroma. Could do with less bitter hops.
