2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
In apparence dark beer with not so more persistent foam. Alcohol and licorice are the most powerful tastes at first drink. It is really hoppy and this make its IPA taste dominant compared to the stout beers’one. As a whole persistant body complex taste but probably too much alcohol ( don’t know if this is due to the fact that I try it bottled)

Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la Fine Mousse (Paris), couleur noire, effervescence faible mais belle mousse. Une bière avec un nez très houblonné assez vert sur la pomme, continuité sur le café et le moka puis superbe finish sur le houblon type fruit de la passion équilibre bien fait !

Draft sample. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid beer.

4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Apparently this keg is pouring all foam, but they poured me a foam taster which soon settled to a nice ~2-3oz amount. Looks great after the foam settles, with good thicker khaki lace and whatnot. Brown red color. Earthy, herbal hop in the nose, and in the flavor, a lot of tropical fruity hop. Not as much black malt flavor as I’d like from a black IPA, but there is some caramel malt, some mild nuttiness. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Moderate zesty taste, moderate sweet, light bitter. An OK black IPA, not too into it. Nice galaxy hop aroma, but not much else going for it.
