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.

On tap at The Cock Tavern, Hackney, Saturday 1st March 2013 This was another winner for me from Brodies, this and the raspberry beer were both truly excellent.Pours black but not so black you could see it peeling away to brown at the edges. This was just a cracking IPA, clean, refreshing, crisp with plenty of citrus zipping through and a little layer of roastiness that really added to this, bitter, clean fruity, but so, so easy to drink for the abv, in fact I can hardly believe its 7.4% Great beer!

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

Status uncertain? Make it certain. This was an extremely drinkable yet complex hoppy brew. Served on cask in at some place near Shoreditch, this beer surprised. Aroma was roasted yet hoppy; mouthfeel was correct; the appearance was quite black and somewhat cloudy. Overall, this is a beer that marries quite well British sensibility with American rudeness. NOTE: just put this same rating under the normal Black IPA before realizing this was listed, please ignore other rating, as I certainly tasted the Dalston.

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.
Earlier Rating: 11/29/2011 Total Score: 3.8
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.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown/black opaque liquid with medium to big off-white/light tan head. Aroma of grass, citrus, tropical fruit, coffee, some light ash and lots of Citra hops. Really reminds me of a BIPA I’ve brewed myself. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of grassy hops and roasted malt. Medium bodied with medium to high bitterness. Nicely hoppy.

Bottle. It pours a dark reddish brown body and a dense, finger-thick light beige colored head. The aroma is mostly on the fruity, hoppy side, as it should be, with a faint roasted touch in the back. Resins, green pine cones, citrus peel and some grapefruit. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with some roasted hints in the far back, and piney, grapefruity flavors up front. It’s full-bodied, with a nice carbonation, finishing bitter and hoppy. Certainly one of the best black IPA’s I’ve had, really tasteful and dangerously easy drinkable. 111229

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.

Hermod (2813) - 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.

Keg @ the rake - pours a murky reddish brown body, soft, delicate nose with citrus, sweet fruit. Excellent mouthfeel and taste, piny, dry bitter, still lots of tropical fruit. Very balanced.
