4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. A very dark, red-brown, almost black beer with a small, light brown head. A great mixture of coffee, chocolate, pin,e and yellow fruits on the nose. A combination of sweet fruit flavours from the hops and a rich body of coffee and chocolate, followed by a very dry, slightly smoky, coffee finish. Perfect balance of flavours, warmth, and bitterness. Fantastic!

Pours a dark ruby red with eggshell head. Pure IPA with floral, and citrusy hops on the nose. Flavours bring more pine and citrus with an addition of tropical fruits. Hints of chocolate malt make for a nice accent, while a bready malt character keeps a good balance.
