Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2013
(Cask at Old Fountain, Old Street, London, 27 Apr 2013) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Malty, fruity, hoppy nose with coffee, chocolate, caramel, pine needles and hints of tropical fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate, pine needles, grapefruit, resin, raisins and a generous resinous/piney bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Surprisingly well balanced and drinkable. Very nice.

Err, well, guess what, yep, this is good. Black IPA exactly as it should be. Maybe a tuppence, ut it’s a rich tuppence. total nonsense that you could understand completely. Perhaps even a pfennig if that’s how your bread is buttered.

GlasgowTAD (841) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Pours almost black with a light beige bubbly head which forms a layer on the beer. Aroma is slight citrus along with chocolate and dried fruit notes. Taste is initially dark chocolate bitter followed by slight citric accentuations, with a mellow roasty finish. This is somewhere between medium and full bodied.
