Dark brown, almost black with a generous brownish head that leaves a good lace. Very nice cakey nose with caramel dominating. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation that suits this beer very nicely, smooth caramel mocha flavors. The hops are present but never upfront. This bottle is probably at least a year old and goes down with a lot of pleasure. Only down side, the aftertaste is a bit short. Must be beautiful in its youth. Loved it.

En riktigt trevlig porter. Smak av mycket kaffe, choklad, brända toner med toner av torkad frukt och citrus. Len, rund, torr och en aning sträv med en chokladbitterbeska som avrundar det hela.

500mL bottle, pours black with a small beige / tan head. Aroma exudes dank earthy hops upfront, followed by deep toasted malt and bready malt. Loads of flavours on the palate, with loads of both earthy hops, and a thick dry roasted malt backbone. Remarkable balance, with a dry malt backing and very earthy dank hops. Awesome black IPA / porter hybrid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chargrilled nose with burnt caramel, burnt orange peel and burnt mango. Pours deep and dark with a firm beige head. Flavour is hugely toasty with deep muscovado sugar notes threaded with some freshening hop notes of lemon and other citrus. Finish is very bitter and long but also balanced and rewarding. A beer that is big in all directions.
