3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nose is is toast, butter, biscuits, lemon, slight cream. Taste leads with pine, and grapefruit from the citra, leading through to licorice herbs smoke, ash, coco, pepper and roasted malt. Finish is long bitter and very dry, balancing the pine with ash. Mouthfeel is rich.
Very nice beer. Still a stupid concept though.

From can large foamy head that lasts. Dark brown to black color. Smell of fruity hops that reminds me of strawberry banana milk shake. Mildly fruity smokey burbon taste with a bitter but good after taste. I prefer gamma ray and bloody’ell but still good.

From can in IPA glass. Nice hoppy nose, citrus with earthy undertones and a bit of mocha. Rich malt taste featuring caramel and aniseed that transforms for the better as it warms. Bam-a-lam, indeed. More please.

A beautifully balanced black IPA perhaps only let down by a slightly too sweet finish. The aroma is of roasted coffee, citrus and a hint of chocolate. The taste includes sweet nougat with coffee, cream, grapefruit and sherbet. It hides its alcohol brilliantly.

Pours very dark brown with good beige head. Aroma of chocolate and pine hops with hint of coffee. Very slight smoke aroma too with some pepper. Medium carbonation and good mouth feel. Taste is hoppy but with a nice light porter edge. Mostly chocolate and light smoke but with good dry bitter hoppy finish

Awesome beer, the aromas are not blowing me away but the look and taste are very well balanced. This can was relatively old but still tasted superb. When I am next in Tottenham I'll be swinging by for a pint of it.
