To Øl – Black Malts & Body Salts Black IPA – 9.9%
From the To Øl gypsy brewery in Denmark comes: Black Malts & Body Salts Black India Pale Ale. De-capping gives an Amazing blast of rich coffee, chocolate with toffee and Liquorice. Somehow, through all that aroma fog, it pulls off a dank citrus aroma with citrusy lemons playing a dominant role. The pour is pure darkness which generates a thick off white head that retains and remains. The taste is thick and luxurious, slightly sweet and almost creamy with a stunning presence on the mouthfeel, extremely full bodied. Intense coffee flavours melt your taste buds and thrash your tongue with the most intense pleasant smoked bitterness you are likely to try in a beer. The alcohol is completely hidden (until afterwards!) Citrus meets coffee, meets IPA, meets imperial stout. Without a doubt, the best dark beer I’ve ever had. Stupendously good. I will stock up on the last of these in the beer shop.
