Almost opaque dark brown - black beer. Small pale tan head. Light fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts with light touches of dark chocolate and coffee. Nice balanced hops - mellow pine, a little citrus and a pinch of hops spice. A little dark malt cream develops before the semi dry finish then a brief flash of tropical fruits. Tasty and well balanced black IPA. Lots going on and very drinkable.

Bottle at home in London - sourced from Beergium. Pours rich black-brown with a creamy, tan head. Classic CDA stout, with equal measures of pine, roasted malts and restrained juicy citrus, orange. Medium sweet flavour with nicely balanced roast, some bittersweet cocoa, rindy orange, scorched earth, hints of coffee, mellow alcohol, a little ash. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and velvety texture. Lightly warming to finish, resinous, with piney hops, further baking cocoa, vibrant citrus fruits, some rindy bitterness, a little burnt grass, melon, tangerine, lingering roast. Really an outstanding CDA from top to bottom.
