UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 Drank with Dave during ’The Biennale’ at the Oersoep Microbrewery. Liked the beer, very pleasant mouthfeel and thickness. Taste is coffee and chocolate but like a porter, but it very nicely adds the extra richness and slight sweetness which makes this beer better than just "plain" coffee, bitter beer like the Emelisse Porter for example. Liked it.

Black body and light tan head. Roasted, hoppy, modern. Rich enough body, quite toasty for a black IPA. That will appeal most I think but for me I’d like some more chocolate love, even in it gets out if style. Hides the alcohol well though. I certainly enjoyed drinking this. (Bottle traded with Benzai, thanks!)
