Cask sampled at ACAT 2015. Slightly hazy dark brown with minimal head head or lace. Aroma and taste is big piney hops over slight roast malt. Clean and easy, but nothing too memorable.

Kind of hazy brown color. Thin off-white head. Nice satisfying pleasant earthy spicy hop aroma, I love that in black IPA. Some dark chocolate, just a hint. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Tasty, unique black IPA. Pleasant spiciness to it, though a touch yeasty.

Dark, dark brown with small mocha head that recedes to a film. Magnificent aroma - strong toffee, resin, pine, some citrus, licorice. The taste comes fairly close to living up to the aroma too. Sweet molasses, rye bread, lots of resin and pine, a little charred meat. Medium bodied and oily. Really good.

number 1200. Frothy head with a darker brown colour. big hoppy pine cones with resin, caramel and light roasty aroma. More of the same hoppy notes with resinous texture and a bit of toasty bitterness on the finish. Big, enjoyable. Very pleasing to taste.
