flying_pig (1419) - SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2015
330ml bottle in Harrild & Sons, London (£5.50):
This one was a really excellent black IPA, quite possibly one of the best that I’ve tried of the style to date (I’m not 100% sure but it is certainly up there anyway). Juicy, flavoursome & really refreshing to drink, this one was an excellent tasting beer that went down in no time at all. After finishing the majority of the bottle I realised the beer had been bottles just over one year ago but this definitely didn’t seem to have a negative impact on the taste, the beer was superb & it’s one I’ll be hoping to pick up again now.

Draught. Pours pitch black with a foamy light beige head. Aroma of pine, grassy, biscuit, hint of chocolate. Taste is of coffee, citrus, pine, some signs of the alcohol on the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation.

burgundydrinker (7) - - JUN 4, 2015 does not count
33cl dans une tulipe Duvel. Robe noir foncé avec des reflets rouges et un bon col de mousse beige bien aérée. Un arôme résineux et citronné, fruité (mûre, cassis). En bouche on perçoit tout de suite le houblon avec une touche herbeuse et rafraichissante, peut être du raisin rouge, puis un final torréfié avec du caramel et des notes de café. Belle amertume durable, mais pas envahissante. Une très bonne bière, dont on ne se lasse pas, riche et rafraichissante. Je prend toujours soin d’en avoir une ou deux sous le coude!

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle from de Molen Beershop, bottled 19/2/15 BB 19/2/16, large sample. Dark brown color, big frothy light brown head. Big aroma of piney and citrussy hop, slight roast and hint of cookie. Medium bitterness in taste, some roast, slight cookie sweetness. Slight thin in body, but the aroma makes up for that. Good beer.

gegwilson (3200) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Cask in the Buxton Tap House, Buxton. Pours mahogany with a really light layer of cream froth. Mild pine hop aroma. The taste is bitter with pine initially before chocolate and liquorice. Nice balance between roasted malt and hop profiles. Really good.

Cask at Buxton Tap House. Black with thick tan head. Heady fruity hop aromas with roasted malt... Flavours follow suit. Really thick and creamy malts with a strong hop backbone. Superb black IPA. Helps that it was served impeccably at Buxton’s own tap house.
