Draft at På Besök.
Sorry to say, in a bit of a hurry so this was perhaps a bit to cold when I had it.
Dark brown, almost black with red hues, a fluffy brown head.
Aroma is filled with strawberries (lots of them), chocolate and roasted malt.
Taste has strawberries, red currant, roasted malt, smooth chocolate, coffee, woody and piny hops that blend well together with the rest. Dry and bitter after taste. Alcohol is not detectable at all. Impressive!
Quite thick mouth feel for the style, lively carbonation.
A really interesting Black IPA that I’d be more than happy to try again! Got taken by surprise by the red berries
