Pours a deliciously thick black with an amazing hop burst rising out of the glass. Packed with the pungent fruit of citra hops the beer’s backbone holds it up well. Exquisitely balanced, with a moderate roast character letting the hops do the bittering. There is sweetness in there but exactly the right amount. This is a hell of a beer.

Tap. Yep top drawer. Thick, lots of chocolate and raisins with a big spliff of skunky hops. Long, bitter sweet finish. Smooth, oily plate.

Fantastically dark appearance with decent initial head. The aroma is certainly not off putting but does not stand up to the appearance. The taste is strong and deeply earthy. Full bodied with soft bitter finish. Certainly quaff-able

Heidbummer (168) - SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Can at Woodland Creatures. Pours black with hint of auburn, lacy head. Subtle aroma if smoke and charcoal, which carries into the taste. This is a good BIPA with lots of hops, bitterness, malt, smoke, but a wee bit thin for the abv. Goddamn drinkable though. Another Beavertown hit.

guitartown (92) - SPAIN - JUL 20, 2016
Lata 33cl. Muy densa y cafetosa, espuma cremosa y duradera. Final amargo pero no mucho. Está buena pero éstos híbridos me desconciertan más que gustarme.

WaddlingPlatypus (112) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
330ml can at the Head of Steam, Durham. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of iron, and dark bitter hops. Notes of cream, smog, and bitter IPA dominate the flavour, undershot with hints of bitter dark chocolate.

Toxophilly (6) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2016 does not count
Wonderfully fresh and prominent aroma of grass, resin and chocolate. Black body - as the name suggests - pours with a frothing ivory head that settles into large bubbles. Medium sweetness with treacle notes is well matched with a lingering, clean bitter finish. Smooth and oily medium body. A delicious and layered black IPA.

ipabr (137) - Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Very hoppy smell and taste, warm alcohol, thick texture. The malts are on hold for some time, and then lack the usual burnt malt taste im accustomed to in dark ales. Pretty damn nice
