Double Black Belgian Rye PA.
You may have had Black IPA, but you’ve never had a Double Black Belgian Rye PA.
Cohort is a double IPA brewed with Pale, Rye, Carafa and other speciality malts that marry together with a plethora of New Worl hops and a Belgian Yeast to create something entirely unique.
The New World hops mesh together to create an intensely fruity and resinous aroma and taste. A forgiving sweetness balances the insane amount of hops used in this Belgian Beast.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2015
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm, 24 July 2012) Black colour with lasting, frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, liquorice, pine needles and dried fruit. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, liquorice, dark rye bread, ashes, pine needles, dried fruit, hints of yeast and an intense piney bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made black IPA, with an impressive bitterness and a spicy Belgian touch. Very nice.

Great coffee, roast, burned aroma. Some hop floral aroma in the background. Good off white head, pitch black colour. Flavour comes through with primary sourness, which is possibly rye. Dark roasty flavours then dominate. Too much stout and rye for me.

Taboada (568) - Compostela (Galiza), - NOV 27, 2014
330 mml bottle tasted on the 26/11/2014. Deep dark brown to black colour with a huge bubble beige head. Aroma of licorice, dark fruits and hops. The taste is very sour with a huge presence of the licorice and the herby hops. Roasted and bitter aftertaste. Flattish palate. High carbonation. Beer not balanced. Black IPA? Next one please!

TEJA (1812) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2014
Small and short brown head. Clowdy brown color. Hoppy and some belgian aroma. Thin taste and body with a small acidity blended with a light phenolic taste.

mkel07 (4511) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique September 2013. Still not sure about rye beers and this one did anything to change my mind. While it is a decent enough beer it just didn’t grab my attention.

Kavu (3291) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2014
0,33l bottle @ One Pint Pub. Pours very dark brown with a very high tan head. Aroma is sour malts, fruits and yeast. Perhaps some stables. Flavor is roasted malts, dark fruits, yeast, alcohol and hops. Good stuff.

Bottle at home watching United, 2012, listening to some Foxygen. Pours black with a nice pale brown head. Aroma has roasted malts, hops, some sweetness. Flavour roasted malts, bitterness, chocolate, bitter finish. Some manure in the aroma, not to say it smells of shit, it’s a decent beer!
