You could have fooled me by saying this was a Porter or a Stout (but it’s not). Chocolate malty aroma, looks beautiful being all black (very dark red tones) with a wonderful head. Tastes malts, coffee, chocolate and some bitter citrus. Overall a quite nice beer.

Fruity scent. The flavor of the dark malt and light fruitiness. Good bitterness that fills the mouth for a long time. Good beer but not much more. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really dark brown color with frothy beige head. Aroma has roasted malts but also some dark fruits like blueberry and blackberry. Taste starts bittersweet with roasted malt and dark fruit notes, continues with a hint of liquorice and finishes with fresh roasted coffee beans. Medium body, medium plus carbonation. Overall it’s a quite good BIPA.
