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.

Theydon_Bois (9945) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle at home whilst backlogging on the day that Leicester came from 2 behind to beat Man Utd 5-3, yes FIVE-3, massive thanks to Paulo Bropey for hooking me up with this CDA back cataloguer 21/09/14. Black with a well formed tan head that dissipates then retains as spotting and edgework. Nose is bitter hops, roasted tones, root liqourice, pine, treacle toffee, light spice, toasted malts. Taste comprises red berry fruit pangs, roasty tones, cocoa rub, bitter tropicana, earthy hop tones, pine licks, light tea bag notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with an earthy hop rinse. Decent enough CDA, the hops have faded a little but it’s held up very well for a 3 year old beer, not too shabby at all!

At a tasting, thanks Gunnar, very dark brown to black colour, almost no head, aromq of dark bread, dark caramel, cocoa and a touch of roastiness, flavour of prune and carob with some mocha in the back with a noticable roastiness, medium bitterness. Very nice but not a black IPA anymore.

allmyvinyl (4244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bought a case of this before I was a shareholder, found it by accident on the site at about a quid a pop. Never really got the oak edge, but remember the massive piney hops. Twas good stuff.

gEUS (1267) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle - sampled at home. Pours deep brown with a small lingering head. Nice thick lacing. Aroma of light malt, green paprica and fresh coffee beans slightly roasted. Light to medium body with a gentle roasty touch, nice sweetness and bitterness appearing as from the middle. Taste is crisp malts/toast and coffee. Balances on the edge with being a porter, but the hop character puts it right back to IPA. Very nice beer.

Opaque black - brown beer. Decent pale tan head. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Light. Mild and light dark malt. Lots of piney hops, smooth. Finishes minerally with a trace of hop fruits. Nice - a super smooth Black IPA - quite delicate and sophisticated!
