Hanoi (609) - 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 (391) - 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 (1739) - 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 (3615) - Oslo, NORWAY - 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.

On tap or cask @ Buxton Tap House. 25cl sample. The aroma has tropical fruits, some resin, mild roast, light chocolate. Brown-black coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter, has tropical fruits, light roast. Easy and dry finish. Good one.

Almost opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry with a fine crispness. Smooth dark malts, medium dark chocolate and mild roast bitterness. Mild dark malt cream. Hops are a mild marmalade citrus with smooth pine on top. Finishes smooth. Pine and hop spice linger on. Smooth and well balanced CDA, very nice.

jzi (69) - POLAND - APR 22, 2015
Wygląd: Kremowa, drobnoziarnista i długo utrzymująca się piana, zostawiająca ogromny lacing. Piwo klarowne o ciemnobrązowej barwie. Aromat: Chmielowe nuty. Cytrusy, żywica. Ale pojawiają się też akcenty słodowe. Smak: Grapefruitowa goryczka - bardzo intensywna. Cytrusowe świeże nuty, Palone słody. Jako finisz występują przeplatające się gorycz ze słodyczą. Wysycenie średnie. Wyraźnie czuć że to piwo to mix receptur IPA i BIPA. Bardzo ciekawe i dobre piwo. Warto spróbować.

ManVsBeer (5844) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
Keg @ Clove Hitch / 23 Club, Liverpool. Dark brown with next to no head. Strong but sweet tasting with darker malts evident, a lot of hops though and it feels like a black IPA than a regular one. It’s as drinkable a texture as it gets for this strength.
