mR_fr0g (5838) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle at home from cotteridge wines. Arom is realy big bold sweet, sharp lemon rind and piney hops. There is also some fruit salad, mineral and some slight roast. Clearish dark caramel red pour with a steadfast dense light cream head. Flavour is sweet toffee, berry hop, pine. The finish is ashy roast and big piney clean aggressive bitterness. Some slight soapyness. Fine tingling carbonation dryish fiinish. The bitterness is a bit too much for me.

jackl (5821) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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!

SilkTork (5415) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2012
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.

thebeertourist (5131) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2012
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.

tiong (5116) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Pours dark brown, almost black with a large foamy head. Aroma of roasty malts, exotic fruits and hints of citrus. Taste is smooth, and quite a nice mix of roastiness and exotic fruitness with a touch of salty licorice and grassy hops. Finish is dry and fruity with lots of roastiness and salty licorice. Quite nice, although a tad too salty and roasty black IPA.

Idiosynkrasie (5024) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 26, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Fruity and bitter hop aroma has notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, citrus, cautious hints of dark chocolate. Taste is bitter hoppy, citrusy, slightly fruity; cautious dry, roasty dark malty undertones; in the disappointing finish unpleasantly flat bitter.
