Tap. Black with a small beige nicely lacing head. Aroma is pineapple, resin, lychee, persimmon fruit. Caramel and toffee. Taste is near heavy sweet and light+ bitter. A little bit bloody metallic. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Soft and creamy with little bitterness and no rough alcohol.

Bomber. Very black, tan head bright, hop aroma that is followed by roasted malt and some alcohol. Taste is citrus, but beneath that is sweet and roasted malt. Finishes bitter, but the roasted toffee lingers and builds as u drink. It definitely is a dynamic brew. The second u feel the hops dominating, the malt comes back into view.

11oz draught. Smooth, easy to drink, great palate. Quality brew, malty, toasty, warm. Definitely not as hoppy as I expected, and I like it. What a pleasant surprise, great work!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a ruby undertone. Two fingers of sturdy foam from a vigorous pour that fell unwillingly to some sticky lacing. Nose is muted dark fruits, citrus hops and roasted malt thatís a little burnt. The forward hop nose is contrast to the dark color. As it warms the malt comes forward even more, a little coffee, more earthy hops and slightly boozy. First taste is a surprise. I expected very sweet but what I got was smooth, burned toast and bitter. The chocolate comes out a little and the alcohol is warming. It finishes big and heavy, bittersweet and smoky. Well made.

@ Basunen: Inte mycke humle kvar men tydlig tjock och lite mjölkig doft. Smaken är fyllig med tydliga brända toner. Annars händer det inte mycket mer.

Thanks to Strykzone for sending this one. Poured black with a tan head. Big nose of hops and roasted malts. Medium body. The mouthfeel is a bit rough. Flavor of lots of hops on a roasted malt backbone. Bitter finish. This is a tasty beer but not quite as smooth as some of the Black IPA we see these days.
