Entirely sensible BIPA. Good punch for 6% with dark bitter roast, strong dark coffee flavours and ok length. Almost austere and I mean this in the nicest possible way.

330ml bottle from Redmonds. Deep brown, almost black, ruby highlights. Big, rocky, frothy tan tinted head. Looks the business. Roast malt and a great blast of hops in the aroma, some leather notes, good hints of a pine forest. Flavour is slightly sweet up front, then comes the big dark malt, medium bitter and a touch fruity in the finish. Loads and loads of body. Mouth feel is sublime, rich, oily and slick. Roasty bitterness in the finish. How good is this brewery?

Aromatyczne chmielne piwo. Lekko tostowe i opiekane. W smaku przyjemnie goryczkowe. Ale nie jest ciezkie w piciu. Pieknie wyglada. tzn jest czarne, se spora piana ale srednio trwala. Metnosc spora bo nic przez swiatlo w szklanicy nie przeswitywalo. Polecam amatorom ciemnych IPA

Aroma: flowers, light caramels. Appearance: dark brown/black, medium beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: turning very bitter, hints of malty sweets coming up, dry long finish. Overall: OK black IPA, too bitter for me in the plate. Pint at the Lincolnshire Poacher, Nottingham.
