Black color, with creamy head. Strong aroma of roasted malt, ashes and hops, perfumy. Flavor of black malts and hops; and of course strong bitterness.
Brewed by the book, but too dark and ashy for my taste.

Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate, light and crispy. Smooth dark malts, touch of coffee and a whisper of dark chocolate. Tangy dried fruits underneath. Thin light malt cream. Light piney hops, mildly spicy. Very light citrus. Finishes semi dry and crisp. A refreshing and easy drinking black ipa.

Bottle at Ølbaren. Black - offwhite (light brown) head. Nice bitterness. Fruity. Burned. Dry burned malts. Charcoal. High bitterness. High malty. Not too powerfull/creamy body. Black IPA is not my favorit style - but this is nice.
