Keg @ Hanging Bat [150713]
Dark brown, hazy, bubbly white head that dissipates
Nose of gtapefruit, soft floral undertones, some pine, mellow dark caramel malts underneath, soft dark malts, good citrus fruity hops
Taste of bitter citrus hops, grapefruit pith, sharp citrus, dark caramel malts background, plenty of hops in this
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, bitter fruity tangy zesty grapefruit finish with soft dark roast malt finish, bitter bit dry slightly salty linger. Palate is a little rough
Overall - Decent BIPA, perhaps the palate just needs to be smoother

Lovely black IPA. Pours dark brown, small tan frothy head. A little bitter, but tastes great. Enjoying Brodies beers, very good quality.

Err, well, guess what, yep, this is good. Black IPA exactly as it should be. Maybe a tuppence, ut it’s a rich tuppence. total nonsense that you could understand completely. Perhaps even a pfennig if that’s how your bread is buttered.

Hermod (6495) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Poured dark dark brown with a dense, huge white head. Aroma has loads of tropical fruitiness, floral hoppy. Very inviting. Roasted malt more in the back. Flavor has roastedness, grapefruit, salt and chocolate notes.Heavy bitter, dry finish. This is a black IPA for sure, good balance, very tasty.

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Well bottled and pleasant but a bit too bitter for my taste. If it wasn’t I would probably have scored it higher. I am still struggling with the concept of a black IPA-the key to this confusion is the P for pale. Still quite a nice beer though.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2013
(Cask at Old Fountain, Old Street, London, 27 Apr 2013) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Malty, fruity, hoppy nose with coffee, chocolate, caramel, pine needles and hints of tropical fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate, pine needles, grapefruit, resin, raisins and a generous resinous/piney bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Surprisingly well balanced and drinkable. Very nice.
