330ml bottle from cotteridge wines, birmingham
Dark brown-black with fantastic satsuma aroma. Chocolate orange, no astringency, little bitterness, full of hop flavour. This is up there with the best and keen to dry on draught.

ACD (676) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 24, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours black with thick and lasting tan/off-white head ’- light lacing. Aroma is wonderful - loads of tropical fruit character: passionfruit, mango, citrus, grape all there in abundance. Hardly any indication of roasted malt or any aromas you’d associate with dark beers. Taste also showcases juicy tropical fruits with a tasty zing of citric bitterness. Roasted malt comes through after the initial tropical buzz, with some notes of coffee and liquorice. Medium mouthfeel, perfect level of carbonation. Aftertaste is an interesting mix of roasted flavour and grapefruit bitterness. A top-notch, seriously drinkable BIPA.

imdownthepub (10654) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at The King William IV, Leyton, London. Black with tan head. What a way to finish off a long, long day. Full of fruity alcohol, bitter, hoppy with a citrus edge and roasty background. Quite a big and chunky beer, great.

pentaz (1244) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2012
Draft. Pours red/brown with minimal tan head. Aroma Like sticking your nose in a bag of hops!, citrus, roast malt and slight fruity. Taste is bread, sweeetness, roasted malts and hops. Delicious solid bitter finish,

SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Pours murky brown with small tan head. Aroma has notes of citrus, grass, caramel and dried hops. Taste is mild at first but builds up to a mouthdrying hoppy finish. Notes of roasted malt, grapefruit and pine.

Christian (11281) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2012
Tap take over at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown with a small white head. Fruity aroma with bright and clean citrus along with a touch of licorice. Citrus and licorice also dominate the flavour, with a faint hard roasted finish

Martinhfp (61) - DENMARK - NOV 10, 2012
Served Mikkeller Bar Copenhagen, draft. Apperance dark brown and unclear with no head. Served very cold but after warmup aroma of characteristic american hops, floral and peachy. Taste with notes of roasted malts, coffee and liquorice, nice strong bitter aftertaste, high ibu, ballanced sweetness, I recommend this beer served 8-12 degreesC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerCast_Rich (1894) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 31, 2012
[500ml bottle, Trembling Madness bottle shop, York] Black pour with enormous puffy white head, which sits like an ice-cream float before receding gradually. Aroma of lemon citrus, passion fruit and grape, resin and yeast. Extremely bitter, resinous flavour, lemon and grapefruit. Almost biting hop level on the far aftertaste, finishes very dry and bitter. Not much chocolate in evidence - the BJCP would love this, there’s really no indication of it’s colour on the taste. Very nice indeed [31102012]

Bottle, beermerchants.com. Strong fruity aroma which transfers well into the taste. Dry and bitter,faint traces of smoke. Finishes long lingering and fruity. Excellent stuff.
