COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Cascadian Immutable Dusk-style ale is as unwavering in its dark and beguiling flavor as it’s namesake. Enjoy this black IPA brewed with our friends in the band PELICAN.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
65 cl bottle @ Mikkeller & Friends. Aroma is rather light with berries, some hayish malt and distant hoppy & roasty tones. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with roasted tones, some gooseberry bush, ashy tones and hints of vanilla. Also some slight metallic savor with nettles. Salty licorice occurs at the end of the glass. A bit bland and disappointing.

lusikka (7119) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
650 ml bottle @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour. Aroma of roastiness, citrus and some yeast. Flavour of rich citrusy bitterness, floral notes, grains, dark chocolate and biscuit. Medium bodied and a rich, roasty, bitter finish. A bit toned down maybe, I was looking more of an aggressive approach to the style, considering the band especially.

Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends.
Pours dark red color with small head. Nice licorice notes on the nose, citric fruits and some grass. Flavor of burnt makes, lemon, licorice and grassy notes again. Not as aggressive as I hoped. Good nonetheless.

Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. Dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry and crisp. Very light dark malts but they still bring a touch of roasty bitterness. Lightly tangy dark fruits. Bitterish pine hops, slightly salty. Crisp finish. Light and tasty cda if lacking the normal 3F fairy dust.
