Yes sir! This is right up my alley. Very well balanced and the perfect bitter finish. Open it and it smells like an IPA . Malty like a solid porter and a solid bitter kick. One of my local favorites, but not quite as good as Bear republic Hop Rod Rye

bottle. Poured opaque brown with a large tan head. Malty nose with a touch of citrusy hops. Slick texture with tight carbonation, finishes dry. Roasted chocolate malt flavour with a spicy oaky quality, and piney hops.

The flavor was very malty, not much citrus,. It is a heavy beer resembling a stout

This was a nice solid black IPA. Really enjoyed the thickness and the aromatics. Lots of bitter on the tongue.

God direkt från flaskan. Ganska mycket citrus inklusive grape, men även choklad och sötma, samt bra beska i slutet!

Not at all prepared for this beer. Called a black IPA, but I would compare it to Imperial Stouts...donít know if they are the same or not. For all intents and purposes this is a stout to me. Burnt chocolate and coffee dominate, but pumped up with hops. Iím a big fan, but again I would never consider this to be an IPA.
