William IV: Brodies Birthday Bash Sept 2011. Hop aroma. Zinging hop taste. Not much room for the malt. Nettle sting on the tongue. Some sweet malt does come through. Not my thing.

3/III/2012 on cask @ ACBF (Moen) - BB: n/a (2012-189)

Clear dark brown to black beer, no head, small white rim. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruits, mango, strawberries and raspberries, forest fruits, syrupy. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, mango, pineapple, bitterness. Aftertaste: fruity, dry bitter ending. I wouldn’t be able to tell it’s a black IPA though.

Dalston Black IPA. Cask at King Willliam IV, Leyton. A durian fruit aroma! Really. The flavour is medium bitter, with fruit, liqourice and spicy notes on the palate. A superb ale.

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Cask @ The Old Coffee Shop. The pour’s a deep brownish black color with a bubbly tan head. The aroma is charred wood, mild biscuit. Bitter chocolate and ash. The taste is woody hops, spruce. Unwashed bitter roots. Earthy hop flavors. Hints of melon rind. Supporting roasted malt body. Aggressive bitter profile. Still, this is quite drinkable and pleasant. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, a pretty good effort!

Bottle from King William IV. Pours murky brown, almost no head. Smells sweet glue- is this bottle off? Do I even dare to taste it?Sour fruit taste, hints of glue, yoghurt, cherries, definitely gone sour. Is it fair to rate a beer based on a bottle gone off? Undrinkable.

500 ml bottle. Dark brown body with a big beige head. Strong citric aroma with grapefruit, pineapple, peaches and pine. Flavor has malt, caramel, citric fruit, grapefruit, pine and a nice balanced bitterness. Fin body and good aftertaste. A really nice black IPA.
Earlier Rating: 11/29/2011 Total Score: 3.8
Cask @ William IV. Black body with a thin tan head. Lovely aroma of grapefruit, pine, malt and hint of liquorices. Flavor has smooth dark malt, fruit and balanced bitterness. Relatively light flavor, still really tasty, decent bitter and extremely quaffable. Very pleasant, smooth and one of the best from Brodies.
