Scopey (8371) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2011
Keg at Mason & Taylor (7% and named Dalston Black IPA). It pours very dark brown, with a ruby tinge and a thick creamy beige head. The nose is charcoal, resin and aniseed. The taste is resin, wood, charcoal, burnt caramel, salted liquorice, well hidden alcohol, roasted malt and a touch of smoke, with a big bitter-dry finish. Full body, fine carbonation and good balance. Really tasty stuff.

From cask @ ACBF 2012. Pours dark, no head, nose is all c hops, grapefruit, lemons, ... Not much in the aroma relating to a dark ale. But it’s all good...

3/III/2012 on cask @ ACBF (Moen) - BB: n/a (2012-189)

Clear dark brown to black beer, no head, small white rim. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruits, mango, strawberries and raspberries, forest fruits, syrupy. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, mango, pineapple, bitterness. Aftertaste: fruity, dry bitter ending. I wouldn’t be able to tell it’s a black IPA though.
