COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 7.1% black IPA brewed by our shareholders. Boasting 80 IBUs, we double dry hopped the beer with mountains of Amarillo, Columbus, Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops. After dry hopping we wanted to add a little more depth and another layer of complexity to the beer so we aged it on toasted oak chips for a further 2 weeks.

Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2011. Great nose of cherry, chocolate, orange. Flavor is chocolate, wood, with bitter, earthy hops. Nice, raunchy and fruity, though the flavor can’t quite match the nose.

A Mes rate. At Chris O’s pre GBBF.
Deep dark brown with a thin beige film topping. Big grassy fresh hop snout that is actually really good. The flavour is a little too coffee dominated but it still works really well. A lick of toffee at the edges. Just a little too malty for it to really sing but yeah, best beer I’ve had from BrewDog in a while.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2011
On keg at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. A black beer with a lacy tan head. Fruity, hoppy nose, quite sweet with roasted malt also. Passionfruit and mango hop flavours are balanced nicely with the roasted malt, toast and bitter chocolate malt character. Nicely bitter with a floral, malty finish. Foamy mouth-feel. Very nice!

Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Black beer, big lacy beige head. Bitter coffee & fruit notes on the nose - mango, passionfruit, burnt toast. Almost sweet to start but deceptive - big coffee ground notes mixed with big citrus and a burnt toasty finish. Really interesting.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Not so keen on this now..... Original rating done 24/07/11 (16/20) Bottle from BrewDog. Appearance - Black / very dark brown....2 finger frothy tan white head. Good, soft carbonation. Aroma - Strong piney and citrus hops, resin, roasted malts. Taste - Initially tangy, slighty sour pine hops, citrus, then backbone of roasted malts comes through with some plain chocolate, bit of coffee. Don’t notice the oak chips. More emphasis on the hops than the stouty background in other Black IPAs. It gets better as you drink it. Palate - Again, tangy mouthfeel - the soft carbonation is just right with a juicy pine / citrus bitter hop long lingering finish (Re-rated from 4 to 3 - the palate I’m finding a little harsh) Overall - I personally prefer a bit more of a stout background and more grapefruity hop in a Black IPA. This is more of a Double IPA / Black IPA hybrid.
