Bizarre beer. Aroma is both roast and citrus. Flavor is the same but has a long lingering smoky bitterness. Pours black with some thick head. Light ish and well carbed. Really interesting.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle shared. Pours very dark reddish brown with a beautiful beige head leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is mostly light tropical and candied fruits with an unpleasant acidic note that fades away as the beer warms up. Taste starts with a faint sweetness followed by roastiness, coffee, some bitterness. Almost nothing to support the roasted component, maybe due to the bottle age (exp. 08/2015) that could have killed the hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. Disappointing.

Draught, 23 Club, Liverpool. Pitch black looks with a tan crown. Decent hoppy snout in tandem with some roast and choc notes. Flavour was a similar yarn with some nice tropical/citrus fruits in the mix. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel and scores highly on drinkability. Dryish lingering bitter finish. Cracking BIPA from a top class brewery.
