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.

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.

mR_fr0g (4392) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (4380) - 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.

tiong (4154) - 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.

johndoughty (4133) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Well bottled and pleasant but a bit too bitter for my taste. If it wasn’t I would probably have scored it higher. I am still struggling with the concept of a black IPA-the key to this confusion is the P for pale. Still quite a nice beer though.

dEnk (4099) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2012
Draft @ acbf. Aroma is roasty malt, some coffee, english hops. Flavour is a nice combo between hops and roast. Good black ipa.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Hand pulled at the Southampton Arms, London. Black, with tight, thick, cream head. Smells extremely enticing. Smooth hoppy flavour. Warming finish. Very fruity. Juicy. Good bitter finish. Love it.

Keg/Cask at William IV Bunny Basher; tried both versions side by side both quality BIPA’s, piney resinous hop balanced with a slight roast malt, the keg held on to head longer, the Keg version was marginally better for me the colder dispense made the hop taste crisper.
