3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Darkly coloured black beer with a very strong light brown coloured head. The aroma is deeply roasted, and the flavour is very deeply roasted with bags of bitterness and a slight espresso coffee feel. Overall a nice very strongly flavoured porter.

4/15/15. Bottle thanks to blomster, I believe. Dark brown pour with a fizzy khaki head, overcarbed. Light citrus aroma, pine, caramel, roasted black malts, coffee, light chocolate. Citrus and pine hop character, chocolate and coffee malts. Not bad.

Black with a shortliving head. Aroma of cocoa and coffe. Taste coffe, licorine, vanilla and figs. The bitterness comes in the aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel, but dry in the aftertaste.

A hoppy porter rather than a black IPA. Deep roasty tones well balanced with a load of earthy & citrus hops.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with marginal tan head. While I dislike the term black IPA (black and pale?), this is the best of both worlds for me (love IPAs) and my fiancee (loves stouts and porters). Drinkable hop-forward dark beer with malt and coffee note. Aroma is a little weak though.
