Had high hopes in but it ended in a slight disappointment. Only a few moments of hops combined with a bit of coffee and quite no taste in the end. Just another average brew.

Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with low unsteady head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and roasted spruce / pine. Taste of hops, malt, torf, coffee, spices and spruce. Quite thin-bodied and with a thin character. Expected more.

Svart farve med litt beige skum. Lukt av røstet malt, sjokolade, og humle. Smak av røstet malt, sjokolade, kaffe og noe grapefrukt. Fyldig og fruktig. Melkebaren.

Pitch black (unsurprisingly), white head; hoppy aroma; taste is a deliciously moreish combination of tangy exotic fruit, resinous hops, toasted malt and coffee; big mouthfeel and long lasting dry finish; this pushed all the right buttons; I really really wanted another.

Black body, light brown head. Aroma has roasted malt, chocolate and resiny and medicinal hoppy notes. Flavour is more intense. Quite remarkable bitterness. Nice black IPA.

Bottle at Reilly’s Taphouse, Itaewon. Almost black, small head. Orangey hoppy nose, hints of roasted malts. Good roastedness in the mouth. Well-balanced, subtle.

No clues about the taste from the smell but sipping it gives a lovely smooth mouthfeel with rich caramel & burnt toffee tones. This brew is all about the way it glides over the tongue. Beautifully dark.
