3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. BB 2013-04-30, sampled on October 4, 2012.
Very dark brown color, medium sized, dense, lasting light brown head. Hoppy, herbal, citrus, roasted, chocolate scent. Hoppy, bitter, a little bit sweet, not much balanced taste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, though I feel it lacks some co2. Roasted and bitter aftertaste. High bitterness. Almost have a chili sensation to it too, right at the end of my throat when I swallow it.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s black with a creamy nougat head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, ashes. The sweet flavor is soft (lovely mouth feel) and yet pleasantly bitter with notes of roasted malt, licorice, fruity hops, dark fruit, dark chocolate, a touch of ashes, and the finish is slightly roasted, dry and bitter. Really lovely black IPA.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,33 l bottle.
This beer rocks! Huuuge beige head tha does not allow me to pour out all the beer...really deep brown-black appearance with this beige foam-sculpture on the surface. I have to be calm, calm and calm! Fine fruity aroma allure me but i have to be calm....Let’s pour out the whole bottle with all the sediment. After a succesfull action the fruity aroma opens. Blackcurrant, some wild-berries are mixed with pine and resin, molasses and cocoa, dark chocolate. After a slip the taste bomb explodes. Full, fine and creamy mouthfeel brings a balanced palate with a fine carbonation. Fruits with dark chocolate, berries with molasses, vanilla with tobacco, ash and smoke with pine and resin - that rules the aftertaste. Awesome, good, fine. Yumm, give me some more bottles, please!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled (thanks to mom & dad, shared with Kimi). Very deep rubyish copper colour, close to black, with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, citrus, fruits, some ripe fuits, resin and mild spruce as well. Flavour is quite much bitter fruits with some floral and mild toasted notes as well. Also shows alcohol in the flavour, yet it’s very nicely balanced.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Towering, beige, dense irregular head, very slowly collapsing over practically black beer. Chocolate, dry hopbales, and also quite distinctly thyme and a hint at rosemary. Bitter-roasted-burnt, if nowhere ’over the top’ - very pleasing. Black chocolate with roast - ashes. Suddenly a new flavour which is quite kafir lime(leaf) like. Well-bodied, if not really thick. Gristslickness, even a bit dusty. Surprising - in the good way! Many thanks to Stef!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Svart öl, smutsbeigt medelstort skum. Choklad och frukter i aromen, därtill en nötighet. Chokladen och fruktigheten återkommer i smaken, där den förra är dominerande. Det är ljuvligt gott. Detta tillsammans med en riktigt väl avvägd men ändå kraftig beska, gör att det inte går annat än att dela ut höga smakbetyg.
