Picked this up at Rosses I Torrades in Barcelona, Spain. This is a collaboration brew that Naparbier did with Nøgne Ø. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a nice two finger creamy beige head with great retention and crazy lacing. The nose is very unique for a Black IPA. Roasty malts and resiny hops dominate with an earthy, almost cannabis-like smell I've never experienced in a beer before. The cannabis also comes through in the taste along with nice roasty dark malts, bitter dark chocolate, pine, citrusy,resiny hops, smoke, espresso, and a touch of licorice on the finish. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy with great balance and medium carbonation. Overall, this is a really unique interpretation of the style and a standout in the category. Wishing I had picked up more and tried it on tap...
