3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, black pour with small creamy dark tan diminishing head, very minimal lacing, smells roasted and chocolate, medium to heavy body a bit syrupy, sweet, don’t really pick on the hops that much, especially for 78 IBUs, almost seems more like a porter with carmel and chocolate, low alcohol % comparatively speaking, not the best black IPA

För att vara en black ipa så lyfter denna öl. Fina toner chocolat o citrushumle toner. Mycket maltsmak o liten beska. En bra black ipa.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
