3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kick. A black one, topped by a dense, light tan head leaving lacings. The aroma is faintly buttery, with caramel, dark chocolate and some lightly citrusy hops. Roasted flavor with chocolate and coffee. A pleasant bitterness chimes in, bringing some balance. Full body, soft and pleasant carbonation, rather dry. Lasting roasted finish. A proper beer indeed, although a bit buttery especially in the aroma. 130520

Das pechschwarze Bier hat ein sehr ausgeprägtes Aroma: Holz, Lakritze, Medizin. Letzteres wirkt leider lange nach - das muss man schon mögen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. More or less black colour with a small beigeish brown head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, some slight liquorice and a bit ashy notes. Flavour is very similar, but has a nice strong citrusy and grassy hop profile to it. Also mild black currant to it. Interesting take on Black IPA.

Ristet og humle.
Som en stout men bare med mere bitterhed. Ret klassisk stout. Ikke meget særligt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle on holiday in Cornwall. Black with a thick pale tan head. Aroma is decent, some fruity hops, tobacco, light chocolate. Flavour is citrus fruit, some roasted malts, tastes more English hops and I think it needs more American hops. Palate is reasonably smooth. Not bad but there are better in the style by a fair margin.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Medium beige head. Opaque black body goes hazy dark red at edges.
Perfumy lacquer and earth aroma with sour, stale beer notes.
Dry-acidic earthy roasty taste with sour, rotten finish. Awful. Must
be infected, but tastes like the unspoiled version might be really
nice. (0.5l bottle, from wine monopoly web order.)
