A deliciously robust, black malted beer with a decadent dark, dry cocoa flavour that provides an enticing backdrop to the Cascade hops.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2013
(Draught at BrewDog Camden, London, 21 Nov 2012) Black colour with dense, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, grapefruit and resin. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, coffee, grapefruit, pine needles and a dry finish with a generous citric/resinous bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. The fairly low abv makes this highly drinkable. Very nice.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2012
Keg, BrewDog Brum, 12/12/12. Tar with a slim, fine lacing nicotine foam. Liquorice and Neopolitan aroma. Good fruity blackcurrant and lemon hop finely dusted with bitter chocolate and carob. Tasty, although eye-wateringly expensive (and cold).

On tap at Brewdog Brum (hoorah). Toasty, roasty hoppy dark ale. Really nice fizz and flavour. Outstanding for session strength.

Brewdog Shoreditch. Opaque dark brown beer. Tidy tan head. Palate is crisp and a little dry. Pleasant dark malts - not too heavy and with a light touch of roast. Finishes softer and slightly earthy with a little hop bitterness coming through. Decent beer. I thought it was a porter though! Not that hoppy for a Black IPA

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 27, 2012
Keg @ BrewDog, Aberdeen
Dark brown with a rich tan head
Aroma - soft grassy hops, slight aromatic hops, mellow roasted malts
Taste of soft roast, soft grassy hops. some plain chocolate
Palate - medium carb, thin to medium body. Bit too fizzy. Finish as main flavour with some soft roast grassy chocolate
Overall - Not a complex beer. Wasn’t an BIPA, more a stout with some grassy hops. Too fizzy on keg. Stout’s simply don’t work on keg below a minimum of 6.5%

Scopey (6315) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Keg BrewDog Camden. It pours near black with a thick tan head. The nose is pine, caramel, cola, roasted malt, coffee grinds, wood and bitter chocolate. The taste is bitter chocolate, coffee grinds, burnt notes, earth, tobacco, pine, roasted malt and the faintest hint of soy sauce with a very dry, bitter finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Rather drinkable. A tasty lower-abv BrewDog offering.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden. It pours a very dark brown colour with a small tanned head that sticks around. Aroma is roasted malts, light coffee notes and toasted bread. Aroma is mostly bitter with roasted and toasted notes and little coffee flavour. Body is medium with good carbonation. Overal, this tasted to me like a pretty easy-going stout. No IPA qualities to me.

ladnewton (1398) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at BrewDog Camden on 25th November 2012. Intensely black with rosy tan head and fair lacing. Rich coffee aroma with plenty of roast malts. Tangy grapefruit hops in mouth harmonise well with the roastiness, and merge into a tangy, roasty finish. Zingy mouthfeel and medium bodied. Well crafted beer and deserving of its high mark.

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours brown with a creamy, beige head. Lots of dry, burnt pine in the nose, sturdy roast, baking cocoa. Light sweet flavor with lots of dry cocoa, tobacco, dirt, dry pine. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry, lightly resinous finish, tons of chalky roast, cocoa, tar, burnt grass and pine. A good black IPA lite.
