Honestly some pretty great chocolate/char/bitter grapefruit+pine hop presence here. Mouthfeel is an issue though, seems really heavy for only 6% and between the big carbonation, bitterness and heft it gets a bit tiresome. Definitely a black IPA-worthy amount of hops here but has the body and drinkability of an imperial stout.

Pours a clear, black color. 1/5 inch head of an off-tan color. Slight retention and good lacing. Smells of english hops, euro yeast, alcohol, strong sweet malt, slight roasted malt, syrup, and hops. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of english hops, euro yeast, alcohol, strong sweet malt, slight roasted malt, syrup, and hops. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, feel, body, and blend.

33cl bottle. Jet black pour with a bit of beige head that gives way to a sticky lacing. Smells of roasted malts, caramel and cherries. More sweet that I expected, with notes of artificial flavouring, vanilla and dark cherries. Watery.
