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.

Cask at Cloisters. Dark brown/black with really creamy head. Citrus hop nose, fresh and juicy. Creamy, luscious dark chocolate palate, fresh mango and coffee finish. Awesome.

Keg in King William IV. Hmm in two minds about the keg, definitely served a good few degrees too cold. Dark brown appearance, hint of cola at the bottom. Huge upfront liquorice hit. Actually thought this was one of the more successful Black IPAs Iíve had in terms of blending the dark roast and the citric bitter hops. Improved immensely as it warmed up, will try to seek on cask as Iím sure it would get a higher score.

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,

Tons of citrus on the nose with peach, lemon zest, fairy liquid and papaya. Pours a deep ruby with a firm, fluffy head. Flavour is true to what is fast becoming my new favourite style - an excellent balance of deep, roasted malts and zesty, spicy hops. Pasionfruit, charcoal and burnt orange peel. Finish is very dry and very bitter and very pleasant. Very nice.

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

Status uncertain? Make it certain. This was an extremely drinkable yet complex hoppy brew. Served on cask in at some place near Shoreditch, this beer surprised. Aroma was roasted yet hoppy; mouthfeel was correct; the appearance was quite black and somewhat cloudy. Overall, this is a beer that marries quite well British sensibility with American rudeness. NOTE: just put this same rating under the normal Black IPA before realizing this was listed, please ignore other rating, as I certainly tasted the Dalston.

Bottle at home on a miserable Sunday, 23rd September 2012, pours a huge soft head that keeps on growing, nice hoppy aroma, taste is delicious and rich, like a kernel black ipa, but richer and softer in mouth, nice stuff

On Keg, black pour with small head, dark malts in the aroma with a floral, citrussy hop profile, palate thin, good carbonation, good beer but not outstanding
