Near perfect balance in the aromas and taste. Some might find it leans a bit to the IPA side but summer’s nearly here so why not.

Pas mauvais mais j’ai trouvé ça un peu trop liquide et pas assez complexe en bouche ... J’aime pas trop par exemple cette acidité franche en fin de bouche ... Mais pour autant, je trouve ça bien fait et plutôt chouette

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Secrets d’Abbaye, Vendin - FR. Color: deep dark black beer with no carbonation and small brown ivory foam. Smell: intensive grassy hops nose balanced with roasted malt and chocolate notes. Very intensive and fresh. Taste: quiet full body with high grassy hops attack balanced with roasted malt and caramel with chocolate finish. Very tasty and easy drinkable. Good attenuation. Aftertaste: superb bitterness, with pine hint and grassy notes. Roasted finish. One if not my best black IPA !
