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.

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.

Hermod (4457) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Poured dark dark brown with a dense, huge white head. Aroma has loads of tropical fruitiness, floral hoppy. Very inviting. Roasted malt more in the back. Flavor has roastedness, grapefruit, salt and chocolate notes.Heavy bitter, dry finish. This is a black IPA for sure, good balance, very tasty.

Draft @ acbf. Aroma is roasty malt, some coffee, english hops. Flavour is a nice combo between hops and roast. Good black ipa.

330ml bottle from cotteridge wines, birmingham
Dark brown-black with fantastic satsuma aroma. Chocolate orange, no astringency, little bitterness, full of hop flavour. This is up there with the best and keen to dry on draught.

Backlog rating. Keg at the Rake tap takeover, London. It pours a dark brown color with a minimal tan head. Aroma is juicy fruity hops, grass, citrus, ripe apricots and mango. Taste has a lingering bitterness with notes of roasted malts, coffee beans, pine needles, licorice root. Finishes bitter and quite dry. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Very tasty
