NYE bottle share at Proof. Deep opaque black, appreciable medium tan head and collar. Aroma is smokey malt, and spicy-piney hops. Taste is earthy-chocolate and smokey malt. Medium carbonation, which is too much for this style in my opinion. Nice thick body though.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aroma: Strong hop aroma, roast aroma comes behind.
Appearance: Fine head. Black color and opaque.
Flavor: Strong hop and roasted malt flavor. Bitterness comes from both hop and roasted malt. Slightly harsh but the level is acceptable as a black ales.
Mothfeel: Full body. Warmly character from alcohol.
Overall: A black IPA.

Pours black with a dark brown thick head, which kind of quickly disappears. Smell of roasted malt, burnt hay, molasses and coffee. Taste upfront of heavy roasted malt, low bitterness, kind of rye bready with a coffee input... No taste of alcohol whatsoever. Mouthfeel is close to full and kind of hard-to-drink beer, maybe som oat or creamier mouthfeel would improve it.
