3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Dark copper colour. Beige, thin, but creamy head. Aroma is roast malt, chocolate cake, privet leaves. (So, just a bit going off then...). Taste has a hint of salt. Then a big, dry, bitter finish, that slightly overwhelms. Complex.

Fresh lime, grapefruit, and citrus aroma. Unripe currants too. Sweet taste of brown sugar and caramel, paired with grapefruit notes. Strange, as most black IPAs.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
good beige head, soft-looking head crown also stays for a good time on the beer, clear black colour, some sweetness and mangoes in the aroma (I also think I found some blackcurrants when I opened the bottle but couldnt find the same aroma afterwards), nicely hopped and the dark roasted malts are complementing the beer in a great way, a well balanced mouthfeel, one of my favourite beers so far, I poured the sediments from the bottle to the glass when I topped it, didnt make the beer any worse

Not crazy about this one, a bit stale, uninspiring color, vary nice aroma with lots of hops and a OK taste.

Pours black with a fairly airy frothy tan head. Aromas of peach, grapefruit, roasted malts, apricot, kiwi. Taste is peach, roasted malts, grapefruit, slight nutty notes, apricot. Body is quite thin with moderate carbonation. Very well balanced and drinkable. Does absolutely not make a fuss but makes its presence known nonetheless. Good stuff!
