Bottle from Stewarts Wine Company. Deep black colour with a tan head. Quite malty with a solid dose of hops. Not bad and hides the alcohol well.

From keg at the Euston Tap on 9 September 2014. Not had this chappie in a while and it was a pleasure to renew acquaintance (note to self: where are my old and more extensive notes?). Really lovely fruity, tropical hop character on the nose. Excellent balance of roast and bitter/grapefruit hop character on the palate. Just as a black IPA should be.

Torrefacto (1321) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 29, 2014
Color negro, reflejos rojizo y espuma beige. Aromas afrutados, resinas y tostados. Cuerpo medio, inicio afrutado breve que pronto pasa a un intenso amargor seco y resinoso muy duradero. Muy rica.

Black pour with a thick, long lasting beige head. Slight roasty aroma but dominated by hops, tropical fruit, citrus - surprisingly smells more like an IPA. Roasty malt flavour, then a little chocolate and licorice, coffee, and grapefruit, pine, with nice bitterness at the finish. Fantastic.

At last some decent black IPA. Deep roasted malt background with not too pushy hop character, but decent enough to make lovely balance additional bonus - grapefruit aroma very nicely implemented, bit berries, bit licorice. Smooth. Feels very well balanced and enjoyable. Thumbs up

CacheManyHose (543) - HONG KONG - SEP 17, 2014
From Taps in KL. Dark brown-black with great-looking fine, fluffy tan head and large bubbles. Big foamy legs. Smells of rich roasted malt, coffee, quite bitter, bit of dark fruit. Taste is very bitter. Ash, coffee, fades quickly and ends on a foamy note. Full body, slick but very smooth and creamy. Very good - big, bitter, lots of dark roasted flavours.

HKdIPA (621) - HONG KONG - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle from Taps in KL at home in HK. Dark brown pour - not opaque. Dense head with some lacing. Aroma is deep roasted and also hoppy. Taste is great - surprisingly tart and juicy hops flavor, dry bitterness but also has caramel and coffee. Slightly boozy finish with lasting bitterness. Really good - would definitely get again.
