courtesy of Tom Strickler - black beer under a long lasting dark beige foam; correct lacing; notes of smoke in the front, followed by cocoa and fruity hops; notes of tea (developping while the beer gets warmer) and yeast too; a solid malt backbone; pretty thick and sticky, a respectable bitterness yet by far not what one could expect from a double IPA; prety dry and with a long smokey and hoppy finish - clean, straightforward and deeply enjoyable ... as usual

Rating (appearance,aroma,flavor,aftertaste,overall impression):
