3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a pitch black with a dense light brown head. Hard roast aroma with only a hint of hops. Solid body, hard and a little harsh roasty malts while the hops don’t really add much but bitterness - and it sure ends bitter. I’d call this a Stout - simply. Hasn’t really got the good aroma hops to make this a Black IPA. 260412

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a dark brown, almost black, color with a very fluffy tan colored head and some nice sheets of lacing.
S: The primary aroma is roasted malt with some coffee notes and a noticeably acidity.
T: Like the nose, the roasted malt is the primary component along with coffee, an acidic note, and a bitter finish.
M: The body is medium with a lively and tingly carbonation.
D: Not sure if the high carbonation and acidity were due to infection, but this one just seemed a bit "off". For a black IPA, this wasn’t all that hoppy.
