Bottle from a corner shop. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - dark chocolate and Jamaica cake. Sweet spices. Taste - liquorice and molasses. Booze and wood. Palate - full bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - good digestif, rich and complex if a bit gnarly.

Saeglopur (1116) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 24, 2015
330 ml bottled Nov 14, from Ales by Mail.
Dark brown body, with some red reflections and a big, creamy, moderately lacing, beige head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, resin, coffee, dark chocolate, some liquorice.
Wonderful, smooth taste of coffee, cocoa, some ash, liquorice, citrus, pine, resin, tropical fruits.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes smooth, roasty, citric, with coffee, cocoa, slight liquorice, various subtle fruits, slight alcohol warmth.

Very tasty! Especially the flavour is perfectly balanced and really smooth. Alcohol is almost completely hidden. One of the very best BIPAs I’ve had so far!

33 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub. Batch #0133: Bottled 11/2014, BBE 11/2017. Aroma has resin, pine needles and licoricey malt. Also hints of ash & coffee. Flavour has somewhat salty licorice, coffee, some hops and mild herbal tones. A bit too salty - even medicine-like. But not bad.
