COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic gets a new edit.

We’ve taken one of our favourite regular beers, In The Dark We Live, and given it a bit of a remix. A darker take on our Black IPA, we’ve added in blackcurrants, blackberries, and black raspberries to take In The Dark’s classic berry notes and turn them up to 11.

On the nose, you get intense hops and plenty blackcurrant. But on the palate, the rich dark malts start to come through, with just a hint of acidity from the fruit and lots of resionous, juicy hop flavour. The fresh fruit flavours come through again in the finish, that play just right against an assertive bitterness.

ciocanelu (3175) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 22, 2018
Dark brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma has caramelized malt, resiny hops and generic dark fruits. Taste follows, the berries are not very present but it has a generic fruitiness with a light acidity, resiny hops and some orange rind bitterness on the finish. Medium plus body, medium carbonation, quite smooth. ABV is hidden well making the beer very easy to drink.

brnandersen (4389) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2018
Sample from 33 cl bottle. Near black with a thin tanned head. Fruity aroma with dark berries, citrus, spicy notes and a lightly toasted note. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with dark berries and malts. Coffee. Too heavy on the dark berries to be well balanced.

Bottle from Oddbins Rosemount. Looks very nice. Pours the darkest brown and a tan head. Nose has caramel, cherries and blueberries. A damp leafy hop with a herb finish. Flavour is real black treacle up front then a light aniseed and berry tart sweetness. It has a soft feel with a moderate to light fizz. Plenty bold flavours in this fruity black ale.

Kicsi, tartós, barna hab, fekete szín. Feketegyümölcsös illat, némi fűszeres beütéssel. Csokis, feketegyümölcsös ízek, fűszeres aromákkal. Testes, közepesen szénsavas, erősen keserű. Kellemes, jól összerakott sör.
