Key at HB. Dark brown with a generous head. Tropical fruit araoma with nothing apparaent from the dark malt. Flavour is tropical friot with a lingering dry grapefruit finish. Some chocolate and coffee appears once it warms.

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

From cask @ ACBF 2012. Pours dark, no head, nose is all c hops, grapefruit, lemons, ... Not much in the aroma relating to a dark ale. But it’s all good...

Dark brown. Flower hop aroma. Taste of flower hops, watery however. A bit flat also.

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.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Big sucker-punch of sherbet, grapefruit, lemon rind and pine. Then cream and something milder rounding out the edges, fading through charcoal porter vibes to a lasting ipa bitterness. Some dirty muddy note on there too. Tastes very strong, I wouldn’t recommend drinking a full pint of this. Pretty damn awesome.

Bottle courtesy of ACD, cheers Alex! Pours jet black with resilient sticky, rocky oatmeal head, Pleasant pine and resin-soaked aroma punctuated with some fine estery vapors. Wow, bracingly hoppy throughout with a substantial and lingering bittereness. Heavy Columbus and Cascade profile. Very smooth with only a trace of roastiness. Finishes creamy and oily. Very enjoyable, glad I got to try it!

Keg @ the rake - pours a murky reddish brown body, soft, delicate nose with citrus, sweet fruit. Excellent mouthfeel and taste, piny, dry bitter, still lots of tropical fruit. Very balanced.

Cask at Cloisters. Pours red to black, a creamy head one centimetre. Nice citrus and black coffee on the nose. The palate is really remarkably smooth and soft, with dark coffee and dark chocolate flavours, along with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg hints with citrus fruit and nutty notes. Anything which can balance those coffee, chocolate and citrus flavours so well, with that mouth-feel, has to be well done.
