3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark marooon body, brown head, nice lacing. Great aroma of dried fruit, a bit of resin and funk. Taste is nice, sticks to the Belgian style with sweet dried fruit malts but also a dark cocoa roast and some resin. Another new style invented. Not the Belgian IPA, but the Belgian Black IPA. Abv well masked. Overall very nice.

I’ve been allocated more than I deserved. A little bit bitter cloudy brown, not much there in my drop of beer. Yeasty. Bottle thanks to someone at Travlr’s place.

Body of yeasty roastedness, with a touch of coffee and cacao. With some nice bitter hops than provide for some extra fruitiness. High on alcohol, but that itsn’t noticable. Good beer.

Not overwhelming. Why is Belgium trying to imitate the West Coast? Weak black IPA, left wanting in almost all categories.
