Bottle. It pours jet black with a creamy beige head. Spice, licorice, pine, fresh fruit and light roast in the aroma. The flavor is pine, tropical fruit, licorice, spice and roasted malt. Creamy texture. Fruity hoppy finish. Great stuff!

MelvinKalksma (1237) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2017

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, chocolate, roasted malts, hops and citrus.

Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a slight/medium brown head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange, pine and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts, hops and citrus.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Gets a lot of its sweet flavours from the dry hopping and has a little bit of chocolate. The finish is mostly roasted malts with a tiny bit of bitter hops. Amazing Black IPA overall.

Hermod (6765) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2017
33cl bottle @home. The beer poured pitch black with a thick light brown head. Chocolate, roasted malt, ash, hops, coffee notes in aroma. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel, balanced and still quite aggressively hopped. Chocolate in flavor, mild ash, roast and some licorice along with citrus fruity hoppyness. Long hoppy finish, nice balance. One of the best black IPAs I have had. Solid!
