Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.Fin (10474) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2010
Deep, deep red - black from a distance. Big, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has plenty of plant sappy hops, some roasted malts, some fruitiness. Medium carbonation, fairly light and rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is a tad unbalanced. Some clear hops, resiny and plant sap. Fairly roasted and malty dry with some chocolate hint. Long, lingering, bitter, fresh finish. Good, but it just somehow lacks the final coherence.
Bottle from Beer Merchants, consumed at home 23.12.10 Pours black with a nice beige head. The flavour is initially plenty of chocolate there is hops but they are late to the party and whilst not offering a big hoppiness they are definately there and play there part well, some coffee also noted. This is the sort of beer that you can happily sip and barely notice it’s almost gone (which I did) very pleasant. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6 madmitch76 (24378) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2010

0.5L bottle. Dark reddish brown and translucent, with a lacing near-white head. Soft, light chocolatey and toasted malt aroma, together with a significant tropical fruity and catty Nelson Sauvin hop aroma. Medium sweet, softly roasted and chocoltey malt flavor. Notes af licorice. Nice topical fruity and citrussy hop flavor. Distinct hop bitterness all the way. Well-bodied. Soft on the palate. Fruity bittering hops linger in the finish. Good stuff.

Bottle. Dark amber, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, fruity, lots of piney + Nelson Sauvin hoppyness, light caramel. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, lots of piney hoppyness, light roastiness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, lots of piney hoppyness witch gets little soapy and harsh. Nicely hopped 4,7% black IPA, really fine Nelson Sauvin in the aroma – although this lacks in the flavor (aroma and flavor not in balance). Interesting but not top-notch.

It’s transparent black with a red hue and a huge, creamy head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of spruce, straw and citrus. The flavour has a light sweetness and a light, dry bitterness, and it has the same hoppy notes as the aroma plus nice licorice. The finish is roasted. gunnar (9019) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2011
