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!

(From notes on a napkin) Got to have this at an EPIC wedding of Mes and Sim. Poured a jet black with a big bubble foam head. Smells of pine, grapefruit hint of brown sugar. Taste is HUGE pine resin, and grapefruit right upfront and in your face followed by roasted malt, toffee, smoke, brown sugar, and then it finishes bitter and clean and you just want more. As with just about every Struise offering, the Mouth feel was smooth as silk and perfect carbonation. This was just about the perfect example of a Black IPA, and the best I have ever had. A wonderful Beer.
