Very dark brown color with light brown head. Very hoppy nose with tons of citrus notes under pinned by roasted malts. Medium full body, tons of cotton candy, citrus notes with excellent roasted malt character. Sharp malt and hop character. Lingering roasted malt finish. Excellent example of the style, but doesn’t make top three for me.

sonotono (247) - torino, ITALY - SEP 16, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 Schiuma marroncina molto abbondante, colore nero con riflessi rossi. Profumo molto intenso, buonissimo, di frutta tropicale, agrumato, erbaceo. Sapore tostato, dolce di malto appena percepibile prima dell’avvento del grande amaro, agrumato, lunghissimo nel finale, anche tostato. In bocca oleosa, facile da bere nonostante la gradazione e l’intensità dei sapori. Somiglia molto alla Black Hop Sun della Granda. Una bomba.

procraste (471) - FRANCE - SEP 9, 2015
Joli noir crémeux ... Nez très expressif. Attaque acide & amère. Bel équilibre général. C’est rarement mauvais chez Buxton. Une vraie belle réussite d’accord entre les arômes torréfiés et la fraîcheur du houblon. Une bière accueillante, pas prétentieuse, qui n’en fait pas des tonnes dans des prix acceptable. Vraiment bien donc.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 2, 2015
Black, not totally opaque, thick creamy head. Very fruity hops, roasted aromas are very subtle, strong malts. Tastes almost like a pale fruity IPA, with a bitter kick that is just rightly dosed. Good IPA.

Een mooi zwart bier. De geur is overweldigend: hoppig, bloemig, zoetig, fruitig. De smaak is heerlijk: hoppig, bloemig, gebrande mout, caramel, fruitig. De nasmaak blijft heel lang hangen. Een heerlijke black IPA.

Bottle at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Blackcurrant, bitter fruit and raisin aroma. Passion fruit, blackberry and roast malt flavours leading to a bitter fruit finish. Nice.

Desverger (7715) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle at The Hare and Billet, Blackheath, London - black coloured pour with a big puffy beige head. Aroma and taste is a mix of roasted malts and tropical fruits, some citrus, prominent hoppy, grapefruit, pine needles, some caramel, cocoa, roasted hoppy finish. Lovely.
