Pours a dark mahogany color with about half a finger of light brown head. looks and smells appealing during the pour. the aroma is of deep dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, very slight dark fruit character. great hop aroma as well. the taste is great on this one, wonderful dark roasted backbone with a well balanced addition of hops. other flavors are chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. overall, i was very pleased with this beer, lots of well balanced flavors that were easy to pick up, and not one flavor overpowered another, great brew!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice dark rich hue. Tall head, but dissipates rather quickly, good lacing remains. Aroma reminds me of chocolate, light but delicious. A little on the hoppy side, normal for an IPA, just not my favorite. good ABV balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
FROM NOTES: July 6, ’12
Poured from a 16 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
A: Chocolate sweetness with a touch of pungent hops, works well together although somewhat faint.
A: A hazy dark dark brown with a thick tan colored head that leaves nice lacing down the glass.
T: Heavy on bitter roasted malt as well as some hop spiciness that is piney and earthy.
P: A good feel, medium body with a nice smooth peppery carbonation.
O: I think this is Tommyknockers best that I’ve had to date. No off flavors and this is pretty tasty. Well balanced.

Doft av bitterchoklad. Medelfyllig smak med rostade kaffe och choklad. Viss sötma och behaglig beska trots sina 78 IBU.
