Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 10/10/12. Opaque very dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head. Fruits on the nose namely blackcurrants, licqourice, pine, hops and traces of toffee. Pine forward in flavour, hops, licqourice, light mineral tones, touch of chocolate and a little booze. Fuller end of medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter dry finish,

Bottle. It pours a big, creamy, dark beige head over an almost black body. Nice lacings. Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and lots of orange peel and pine cones. It’s full bodied and a bit heavy on the carbonation. Still nice though. Semi-dry. Roasted matls, dark chocolate, hints of coffee and lots of pine cones and citrus peel. Nice hoppy bitterness too, lasting for a good while. Roasted malts and hop flavors in the finish. Sure a nice one, although it’s a bit more dark malty than I prefer my Black IPA’s. 140613

Smaskifa (121) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle ’polet Vika, Oslo. Pours a nice head, doesn’t last very long but stays at a minimum on the top. The aroma is really funky: old sweaty workout suit (on the sweet side), 1950s army style fitness hall, wet dog, nosebleeds, caramelized tampon and a certain hint of just regular caramel. Seriously, among four people we really did pick up all those things. The taste was free of any of the above mentioned, apart from the caramel, slightly roasted, heavy liquorice - the style you buy in small tin cans which has a very bitter taste. Pleasant hoppy finish. The beer was very nice on the taste buds, but would easily compete with some of the more rancid cheese on the market regarding smell. Would be interesting to try it again later to see if the aroma was a one off or not.

Bottle at Cafe Sara, june 20th 2014. Black body with a small tanned head. Aroma is roasted and hoppy, fresh citrusy hops, grapefruit, peach, pineapple. Taste of bitter black coffee with juicy hops, notably grapefruit and peach, with a soft vanilla touch at the finish, leaving a fruity sweet yet bitter aftertaste. An excellent beer, this is how I like my black ipas!
