3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma smells like this has been more hopped up, I get old hop tea leaf flavors, roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark caramel, roasted malt and coffee. The flavor follows the nose with the old hop tea leaf flavors and almost grapefruit, some roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and the dark caramel. The body is full with a creamy mouth feel. Overall a pretty nice Imperial Stout and so far my favorite Syndikatet beer.

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.
[50 cl bottle, from Kastanielys Sj. Odde, Denmark]
