Lovely black IPA. Pours dark brown, small tan frothy head. A little bitter, but tastes great. Enjoying Brodies beers, very good quality.

JackMandarin (189) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle from Salt Horse, Edin. Pours very dark brown. Red at the edge. Light tan head that lasts and good, oily lacing. Quite a savoury richness in the aroma from the first blast. Dank piney aroma comes through next. Treacle. A touch of something smoky. Quite meaty, almost pepperoni-like. More malt than hops here but with still enough resinous hop presence. Strikes a different balance from most other Black IPA’s though. Taste has a bittersweet start. Charred peaches. Very pithy grapefruit. The bitterness is quickly overtaken by a firm and drying bitterness. More hops than malt here! Roasty with rich coffee tones. Sherbert carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Astringent finish that’s a little too full on for me. A very interesting Black IPA that isn’t fully my thing but with bags of character.

Evilkniamhel (464) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2016
Cask at Cloister’s Bar. Dark opaque brown with a creamy fawn head. Aromas of tropical fruit, sweet malts, coffee grind, dark chocolate, dried fruit. Full bodied and really nicely balanced on the palate, exactly what a Black IPA should be.

Bottle from Ales By Mail. A month and a half past the BB date event though I had just bought it. Still fairly fresh though. Hazy very dark brown with a lasting light brown head. Aroma is sweet, malty, roasted malt and rather hoppy - grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 230315
