Pours a black color, topped with a medium sized beige head, ok retention. Nice hoppy aroma with sweet fruits. Some mild roasty presence in the back. Moderate bitterness with citrusy presence quite noticeable. Dry finish. Medium body, though a bit more on the light side. A decent BIPA, though no fireworks.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! Pours murk dark brown with a huge most good lasting tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt and spruce. Taste of mild dark roasted malt, coffee, liquorice, mild bitter hops, good stuff!

Many thanks to CH-303 for this bottle! Great dark and floral beginning. Interesting hop-profile: pine, resin, but in the minty-direction (without Polaris used here). Nice chocolate roasted body with hints of caramel and milk-chocolate. The floral piney hops are great and dominant, the aftertaste is long, round and smooth-dry. Nice stuff!
