3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at CBC Islington, 29/08/13.
Light black/extremely dark mahogony brown with a good sized light tan head.
Nose is light roast, sugars, cocoa, toffee fudge, mineral notes.
Taste comprises chocolate pudding, light pine, brown sugars, bubblegum, hop presence evident.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finish with a touch of roast countered by some hop bitterness.
Pleaseant enough CDA, the 9.3% is very well hidden, however a little overly sweet for my own personal taste in regard to this style.
Good body, lots of alcohol, almost hidden behind the dry hoppy finish. Drink it alone. nybol (2280) - DENMARK - JUL 11, 2017
En meget humlet øl, dog uden at blive alt for tør og skarp i det.
Drak en halv liter af øllen, hvilket nok lige er i overkanten, der er simpelthen for meget humle i! Orange_times (305) - UKRAINE - JUN 2, 2017

From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours dark, very close to black, with limited cream colored foam. Aroma is rich: sweet, resinous, and herbaceous. Body is medium-dense and with some stickiness. Quite some tongue tickling from intense carbonation in the mouth. Taste is bitter, yes, but rich and full, with roasted and lightly smoked feeling and a sweet underlying taste. Finish is long.

The beer has got a deep black colour with a small head and smooth body. Aroma pf hops and pine. Taste of hops, pine, spruce, woods, herbs, citrus and flowers. Hoppy finish. Wonderful. DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle, shared at Ian’s birthday. Deep ruby tinted brown, clear with a tan head. Perfumey berry and pine, dark caramel, very bitter finish. Not as good as the hype for me, missing the roast I was hoping for. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2017
