Bottled (PapsKøssed, thanks!). Very deep ambery brown colour, close to black, huge beige foamy/creamy longlasting head that leaves lace. Aroma is rather fruity and floral bitter hops along with mild liquorice and toffee. Flavour is bitter fruity and floral notes with mild liquorice and some slight yeastyness as well. Pleasantly balanced Black IPA. olsvammel (7226) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2012

Bottle, shared june 22nd 2013. Muddy dark brown "cola colored" body, big light brown head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruits and grass, with strong roasted mat. Taste follows due with intense roasted malt and an explosion of fruit, peach, pineapple, mango, and caramel. Salt licorice finds its way into the finish, with a high nice bitterness. One solid CDA for sure.
