3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. More or less pitch black colour with a mediumsized brown head. Aroma is liquorice, some roasted notes as well as a bunch of floral and fruity hoppiness. Flavour is coffee, roasted malts, some toffee, liquorice, mild berries along with some yeast, fruity and floral hoppiness. Quite tasty, and would probably be good in a few years as well.

En flott avslutning denne fine maikvelden på Mandag i annen hvor vi har fått så mange gode øl. Nesten svart med nydelig skum. Masse aroma som man forventer fra amerikanske humler. Furunål, sjokolade, kaffe. Litt vanlije? Smaken er like kompleks, og er der et snv av chili eller pepper? En anelse av sure bær gjør den ekstra lett å helle over drøvelen. Eminent på alle måter. Nå venter København og Tap1!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a black body with a small-ish, medium brown head that reduces to a thin layer and laces the glass well. The aroma is strong and roasted as it should be, with coffee, dark caramel and chocolate. Also quite much fruits, some alcohol and a herbal touch. The taste is moderate sweet and heavy to moderate bitter. The flavours are surprisingly hoppy and fruity, with lots of dark berries. The maltiness is quite gentle, although the dark roasted coffee is in place. It feels rather alcoholic, it has a full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice imperial stout that I’m sure some breweries would have labelled Black IPA.
