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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Dark brown-black in colour, pouring with a large foamy tan head. It has a rich chocolate, pine, citrus and ginger flavour with a creamy tart fruit, vanilla, oak and bitter citrus finish. Nice!

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Almost black colour, reasonable head. Pine hop aroma. Dry citrus fruit tar & hop flavour. Grapefruit aftertaste. A really good beer.
