Bomber from Slowbeer. Not sure of the brewing date.

Dark mahogany on the pour. Modest beige milkshakey head, recedes gradually to leave a 1cm raised ring and film.

Nose is quite roasty and nutty, showing chocolate milk, liquorice, baked caramel and hints of candy sugar. In time, a refined herbal hop character emerges, alongside some mild plasticy phenolics. Nice definition overall.

Slightly milder flavours. Lots of dry roast, bay leaves, mild pine, earthy herbal edge. A bit pallid overall.

Light body for 7% Pleasant silky carbonation, and a restrained bitterness which seems equally contributed by roast and hops.

Sound, drinkable and approachable, but it underachieves - especially as something purporting to be a black IPA. Strikes as more a regular stout or even a Schwarzbier.
