Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at the Old Coffee House, London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Big pine nose with a hefty roasted malt backbone. Medium sweet flavor rife with dirt, thick pine, burnt grass, dark orange and grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Heavy resinous finish with lots of dirty pine, ripe citrus, moderate roast, light baking cocoa. No abrasive bitterness, which is very nice. Well rounded black IPA.

BeerViking (2288) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Cask at the brewpub, deep chestnut with a lasting white head, hoppy nose with touches of citrus and toffee, palate is acrid bitterness, there are hints of toffee and nuts underneath but the acridness is overpowering.

maneliquor (2989) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2014
Tap at BD sheps bush. Pours clear far brown with a dense beige cap. Nose is full of sticky sweet tropical fruits, marmalade like with some honey and pine. Nice cocoa in the taste with plenty of sticky date and tropical fruits. Balanced sweetness with moderate bitterness to finish. Drinks so well. Tasty stuff

Theydon_Bois (7895) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Keg at the Old Coffee House, 21/01/14. Extremely dark mahogony brown with a good sized light tan head that dissipates then retains as a covering, half glass lacing ensues. Nose is earthy hops, caramel biscuits, pungent tropical fruit aroma, sticky mango, light pine. Taste comprises candied sugars, a good dose of pine, caramel malts, light cocoa, sticky tropicals. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, earthy hop bitterness and a lick of mineral in the closure. Decent hoppy affair - easy drinking.

shoulderbroken (1849) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 14, 2014
Keg at William IV. Brown with hints of red. Creamy off white head. Aroma is skunky hops, grapefruit, bit BO, kind of black ipa like. Taste is similar, lightly roasty, grapefruit hoppiness, bit more body, chocolate and coffee. Bit of creaminess when you get past the hops and some spice too. Quite nice. Mellower black ipa.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Keg at Old Coffee House. It pours deep cloudy brown with a thick beige head. The nose is earthy, wood, leather, dark fruits, pineapple, cocoa and caramel. The taste is bitter-sweet, dark fruit, raisin, dried fig, cherry, citrus peel, pine, resin, brown sugar, dirt and a touch of alcohol with a very dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Quite a lot going on. Nice balance and high drinkablity.

Niall73 (1328) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
On tap at The Olde Coffee Shop, Soho. Pours a slightly muddy brown colour with an off white head. Aroma is kiwi, mango, pineapple with a bit of breadiness. Light to medium body and medium carbonation. There's a lightness to it that belies the alcohol content. Rye, light caramel, sweet, slightly funky tropical fruit. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

downender (6127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
On tap at the Old Coffee House, 3/10/2012. Murk brown with a small, off-white head. Big coffee notes collide with tropical fruits before a hoppy, dry finish. Didn’t work for me.
