Cask handpull at William IV Birthday Bash 2011. Very dark brown beerwith thin lasting beige head. Can smell the hops from it on the table. Decent hops in mouth some ok choc. Not overly roasty. Light choc notes then a fizzing hoppy bitterness on the finish. Decent.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle. It pours a dark reddish brown body and a dense, finger-thick light beige colored head. The aroma is mostly on the fruity, hoppy side, as it should be, with a faint roasted touch in the back. Resins, green pine cones, citrus peel and some grapefruit. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with some roasted hints in the far back, and piney, grapefruity flavors up front. It’s full-bodied, with a nice carbonation, finishing bitter and hoppy. Certainly one of the best black IPA’s I’ve had, really tasteful and dangerously easy drinkable. 111229

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Bottled 33cl. Dark brown-ruby color, good creamy brownish head. Aroma of fruity American hops, citrus, resin and "fermentation gases". Medium-bodied. Front and aftertaste have nice salted licorice then resiny, grapefruity bitterness. Quite hoppy with long lingering aftertaste. Classy black IPA.

Christian (11092) - 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

Leighton (10958) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Cask at William IV during Brodies Birthday Bash 2011. Pours black-brown with a white, foamy head. Lovely nose, rich pine, grapefruit, orange. Sweet, juicy flavor with restrained roastiness, plenty of resinous bitterness, some grass and orange juice. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Somewhat salty. Nice finish, oily pine, dark malts, subtle roast, citrusy sweetness, too. Excellent beer. Way to go, Brodies!

imdownthepub (10210) - 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.
