Draught@Mes & Sim’s Wedding. Black colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, some plum/raisins notes as well as fruity and floral notes with mild liquorice lurking. Flavour is a bit berryish, plummy/raisiny as well as slightly liquorice, alcohol and some quite strong fruity and floral notes as well. Quite bitter. For once a Black IPA with attitude!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Borefts 2011. Not much aroma. Almost black colour, seems muddy. The flavour starts off with a burnt plastic note, burnt rubber or whatever. Turns sweetish and roasted. Perhaps a hint of fruit. Seems like a decent beer, but the plastic is a bit of a turn-off.

18th June 2011
On tap at Mes&Sims wedding - thanks guys! Opaque black beer. Soft semi dry palate. Rich deep dark malt, plummy and figgy. A trace of raspberry jam. Mild hops, a little piney bitter. Finishes dry with a lingering tingling hoppy bitterness. Whisper of bubblegum as well. A really nice and quite unusual Black IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deutlich bananiger Antrunk, der sich dann mit Röstnoten vermischt. Wenig Süße, deutliche aber noch zurückhaltende Herbe. Der Hopfen sorgt neben bananigen Noten auch für die nicht störende aber auffällige Trockenheit. Gelungenes harmonisches Bier – mehr davon! 12/11/12/13//12
