Tate is inky black roasted malt with a a fresh pine bitterness adding to coffee and dark cocoa. Palate is smooth with good carbonation. Tingly bitterness on the finish. Good!

Can from Craftissimo, drank at home after Mildred's BP F/U. Pours an opaque dark brown with a creamy tan head and plenty of foaming lacing. Aroma: lots of dark chocolate chips, slightly herbal bitterness, coffee, roast dark malt, slightly chalky/oaty, light fruit - cherry, plum, fig, red berry. Taste: dark roast malt, quite bitter. Body: roasted bitterness, thin to medium, gentle carbonation, oat/grain chalkiness. Very solid, a black IPA that has dark chocolate/coffee flavours in a dusty/dark/chalky, not acidic/burnt, way (which is my preference). Nice notes of fruit in the nose too. visionthing (5492) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2017
