330ml bottle from Ales By Mailabemorsten (3593) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2013
BBE May 2013 - Pours pitch black with a foamy white head. Aroma of roasty malts, grassy hop pallets, hints of coffee and fruits. Taste is roasty, slightly fruity and grassy with some bitterness, hints of coffee and cocoa. Finish is sweetish, bitter and dry with some roastiness and hints of grass. Quite tasty, perhaps would be even better from a fresh bottle.
On tap at Cardinal. Black body with a small dense light brown head. Tropical fruits, raisin and cat piss on the nose. Pungent dried fruits malty sweet and bitter flavors with toasted notes. Medium to full body. Smooth and joyful to drink. Long bitter finish. Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
On tap @ Cardinal. As expected, black as night with a perfect creamy tan head. Nice aromas of fruits and mid roastiness. Flavors of clean citrusy hops complimented with a mild roastiness. A really good black IPA.
