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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[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

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.

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 I’ve 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 I’m sure it would get a higher score.

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.
