draft at Dagda. slightly light for a black IPA. chocolate notes in the nose matched in the taste. hops mostly turn up in the finish. surprisingly tasty for a 3.6% beer, if not terribly complex.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump Old Fountain London 23/07/12. A near black coloured beer with a thin off-white head. A smoky and slightly sour mild. The NZ hops don’t add citricity. Interesting flavour of acidity which may not be totally wanted. A bit of chocolate. Decent enough in places.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Cask gravity at 7th Bexley BF. Very dark brown colour lasting thin beige head. Good choccy aroma even before i pick the glass up. Yes a good choccy simple beer. Some hop sting on finish. A modern dark mild done well. Some dryness. Tastes nice and fresh. Fine

Cask. Deep brown almost black with a ruby haze. Small tan head. Dusty cocoa, mild caramels, a bit of coal. It's surprisingly light given the colour, but also the finish is disappointingly non-existant. A light fizzle then gone.

Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’12. Brown with no head. Thin, slightly washed out malty beer, little depth, there is a metallic edge to it. Some caramel, not that good on the day.
