jamestulloch (2462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, burnt caramel and aniseed. Flavour of coffee and citrus. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture. Faint carbonation. Sits closer to a Stout than an IPA, although it lacks the depth of a great Stout and the hop character of a great IPA.

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.

Tap at William IV. Pours a dark coca cola colour with a pale tan head. Aroma is pine, cannabis with an earthy funkiness. Medium body, medium carbonation. There's pine, toffee, grapefruit, coffee, pineapple, funky fusty stuff. Yep, nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Hanging Bat. Pours dark Brown with a thick White head. Very hoppy aroma. Tropical and pine. The flavour has Grapefruit and pine. The lingering grapefruit bitterness is formidable.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - 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]

Abio (1816) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2012
Dark brown, ok head. Good hopped at both smell as taste, also the citrus fruits and decent amount of spiced. Not bad, a bit of a surprise even for me.

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.
