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 (378) - 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 (1371) - 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 (3662) - 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.

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!
