Really smooth, silky texture. Aroma and taste have green, fresh hops and slight roast malt. Has a level of alcohol and balance of flavour which makes it worthy of repeating.

Bottle @ benzai. After the beer was served into the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive off-white foam colour which was fine amd even of structure. The beer is brown btw. Smells coffee, roasty, chocolate and a nice amount of hops. Smells like a great black ipa. Tastes roasty, coffee, slightly liquorice, bitter and some hops. Could use more hops, but itís a nice beer. Medium body, great carbo.
