3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Fireside in Strasburg, PA. Overall, this was a very good IPA with a remarkable balance. Pours with a dark brown color, producing a moderate tan head, but with lacing that ends up being a bit weak. The nose is hoppy and malty: sweet, with florally scents accompanied by a roasted malt aroma. Likewise, the taste strikes a nice balance between malts and hops. Will certainly buy this one again

Flaske medbrakt av esp0r. Svart farge, som navnet tilsier. Beige skumtopp. Medium karbonert. Smaker kaffe,karamell, mørkbrent malt, furunål og noter av mørke bær. Ganske god, men flasken er desverre snart ett år gammel og har nok mistet mye aroma

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Molto caffettosa, direi soprattutto nel finale decisamente tra il tostato e l’amaro pungente, non male. Parte ipa un pò sottotono.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
