Bottle shared thanks to Scotty001. Almost black with beige head. Lots of roasted malts, espresso, dry cocoa powder, light smoked meats, some light lime and grapefruit, soft wild flowers and herbs. Taste is mainly roasted bitter with a touch of sweet malts. Medium bodied with a bit of a dry feel. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
When a Porter meets a a Black IPA. The porter dominates without doubts. The appearance is a porter-like black with beige head. A big creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, as well as its taste, which adds caramel and hops. Medium bitter finish, which I guess is the intent of being described as a black IPA. Good beer anyway.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Darkly coloured black beer with a very strong light brown coloured head. The aroma is deeply roasted, and the flavour is very deeply roasted with bags of bitterness and a slight espresso coffee feel. Overall a nice very strongly flavoured porter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hoppy porter rather than a black IPA. Deep roasty tones well balanced with a load of earthy & citrus hops.
