Tap at BrewDog Manchester. Black with short tan head. Aroma has earthy and red fruit notes. Taste offers leafy hops, sticky liquorice and a lingering smoke/char factor. Has a nice, juicy, zingy, citrussy edge to it too. Hops and malt combining well here to make a good black IPA.

Bottle @ Vinoble Odense. Pours nearly black with a creamy white head and lacings. Hoppy and roasted nose and flavor. Gazoline, berries, citrus, roast and ashy coffee. Hoppy tropical finish. I sense a bit of a baking yeast note - gladfully not enough to spoil the fun.

Tap at C4. Mild hop aroma. Cloudy black colour. Small light brown head. The flavour has a good hoppiness. There is an underlying roasted malt base, which is too dominant for me taste.
