Not your conventional black ipa. Deep deep roast. Big roast wafting aroma. Big black colour with thick mocha foamy head and lace. Its hoppy for sure, but its also roasty. Hence the imperial tital. Above average mouthfeel, with a bit of near-astringency at the end of the bottle. From Veux-tu. mR_fr0g (12110) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015

Black color with a small tan head.
Roasted malt, milky sweetness, coffee, mild bitterness and chocolate in the aroma.
The flavor is hoppy bitterness, roasted malt, dark chocolate and ashy dryness.
Bitterness stays. Balanced and tasty.
