On tap at Cafe Sara, april 3rd 2015. Dark red body with a small light brown head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine and pepper. Nice bitter taste with grapefruit, pleasant malt character, dry hopp finish with lasting flowers and fruits. Quite nice!

Evilkniamhel (577) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2016
From bottle at holyrood 9a. Pours a clear dark brown. Lots of complexity already on the nose, grass and resin from hops and roasted nuts and coffee from the malts. Well balanced and long lasting finish. Delicious.

agent_persik (676) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2015
Very dark brown reddish color, big beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, malt, pine, hint of chocolate and some floral notes. Dry sweet taste has citrus, pine, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel and hops in bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body and good carbonation. This beer really tastes like mix of two styles, interesting but a bit unbalanced.

Hanoi (849) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle. Black and Tan. Nose is citrus, malt slight roast. Taste is sharply bitter, grapefruit rind, lime, pineapple, light resin, malt, roast, slight chocolate hint, very bitter finish. Interesting seeing a modern black and tan, but the black IPA dominates which is a style I’m not at all fussed with, and it’s hard to distinguish from a regular black IPA.

lobs_ols (452) - LATVIA - JUN 10, 2015
Black, strong beige head. Delicious US hop aroma with some underlying dark, malty notes. Quite aggressively bitter, with some underlying burned grain. Almost light bodied. Finishes dry and bitter. Not for me.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle Coppers Newcastle. Lovely deep ruby black colour, pronounced fresh pine aroma, with a little background coffee. Lovely smooth palate, good bitterness, prickly, earthy finish. Another Buxton beauty.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 26, 2015
33cl bottle from Õllepood nr2 Gambrinus, Pärnu. Pours clear dark brown with a beige head. Strong hoppy aroma with pine and citrus, some tropical fruits too and then comes the mild roasty notes, dark malt, licorice and hints of chocolate, dark fruits an spices. Moderate sweet with lovelty hoppy flavours with a certain balance against the dark malty ones. More IPA than BIPA, but certainly a nice and tasty one. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Finishes quite bitter and a bitter aftertaste with notes of pine and grapefruit. Tasty stuff!

Lovely old al bitter hop aroma. Palate a little milky with its grains. Nice roast. Finish is beatifully coffee-like. Super stout - great drinkability, and I love the grains.
