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

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.

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.

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

mile (3320) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown, hazy, average to large and mostly lasting light brown head. Moderate to full malty and lightly sweetish aroma, roasted malt with some tropical fruitiness, light caramel, roasted malt - faint burnt malt, light tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel, roasted malt - light burnt malt, faint tropical fruitiness, piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dry, lots of roasted malt - light burnt malt, lots of piney hoppyness - light grapefruit hoppyness. Well hopped and roasted BIPA - bit thin though. Quite nice but not top notch.
