Christian (11804) - 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

imdownthepub (11465) - 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.

bierkoning (11206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2012
Cask @ ACBF 2012. Deep dark brown color. Sucade, plum and lots of dried fruit in the aroma. Harsh oily hopbitter flavor with lots of plums. Floral. Some question marks about the balance, but this is a delicious beer.

Bottle 500ml @ yngwie
Pours deep reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, grape, citrus and orange. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Rune (9395) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2012
Keg, as Black IPA, half-pint, in a very relaxing atmosphere sitting by the open fire place at the excellent King William IV in Leyton. Deep black body topped by a decent, creamy tan-coloured head. Solid artwork to the glass. Semi-tart berries and aniseed fruits to the nose. Flavoured with citrus fruits mixed with malty hints of liquorice, grain and chocolate. Rather too much of bitter tartness towards the ending. Good without being outstanding (Greater London, 24.11.2012).

Scopey (9349) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2011
Keg at Mason & Taylor (7% and named Dalston Black IPA). It pours very dark brown, with a ruby tinge and a thick creamy beige head. The nose is charcoal, resin and aniseed. The taste is resin, wood, charcoal, burnt caramel, salted liquorice, well hidden alcohol, roasted malt and a touch of smoke, with a big bitter-dry finish. Full body, fine carbonation and good balance. Really tasty stuff.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Old Fountain London. A near black beer with a white bubbly head. Very good hops in this with minimal roast from the dark malts. Nothing sweet about this at all. Tons and tons of citric fruits; mostly grapefruit. Really really lovely. A near perfect BIPA.

JorisPPattyn (8562) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2012
Cask Chocolate brown beer, with B.C."H.". Ureum-rich, fruity hops, exotic fruitaromas. Chocolate malt, hops reduced to blending in and lend a bit of fruityness; melanoidins and a bitter, dry finish. Medium bodied at best, but quite slick, especially backthroat. Good, if unspectacular, well-hopped brown ale.
