On tap at Haand Festival. A black beer topped by a lasting tan head of good size. Some lacing. The aroma is piney and resiny with a hint of coffee. Some roasted malts too. It's full-bodied and with a good bitterness and carbonation, more on the dry side than the sweet side, with flavors of pine cones, citrus zest and resin up front, and a light roasted malt flavor in the back. Lasting hop driven finish with a touch of roasted malts in the back. A really delicious Black IPA, I love it when the dark malts are there mostly for color and sure don't run the show. And this one was good in all aspects. 170526 Cunningham (8459) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2017

Draft sample @ Kongsberg Bryggeri. Beer5000 (6772) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2015
Brune, col crémeux blanc-cassé.
Arôme au nez superbement bien malté avec pas mal d’éléments de café qui apportent un agréable bouquet torréfié. Le tout est accompagné d’un plaisant rétro-nasal houblonné finement citronné.
Palais est malté, plaisant sur le grillé, presque de café moulu voir espresso. L’accord malts et houblons est là avec une petite amertume sans pour cela tomber dans le style Cascadian dark. Retrouve cependant de bons éléments de pin et agrumes, plus soupçon de résineux.
On tap @ Patricks. Dark, dark brown, close to black body with a medium sized, lacing tan head. Decent aroma of dark malt, some coffee, dark chocolate and pine. Flavor is light roasted, dark malt, mild coffee, dark chocolate, pine and fruity hops with pleasant bitterness. Fine body and OK aftertaste. Nice beer, a bit light on the bitter hops, could go for a hoppy porter as well, but all in all a pretty nice beer. gunnar (9778) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2015
