McNeillR (2232) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Clear mahogany, beige thin head. Sweet musty choc, cayenne and charred roastedness. Burgeoning roastedness, chocolatey hops and building chilli vibe. Not a massive middle to this, zips to the chilli kick - with an odd thin bitterness. Chilli burn is nice enough, if a bit pushy. Finish is chalky chilli burn and sweet steamy colander orange rind bitterness.

oops (211) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 1, 2014
Dark red brown, small white head. Aroma - sweet caramel, roasted malts, pepper. Spicy, malty and hoppy taste. A little bit oily and too lively carbonated for my taste, but interesting experience.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Clear, dark red. Thin, tan head. Liquorice. Burnt rubber. Taste is dark chocolate bitter. Palate has plenty of heat. Too much for me. Hard work.

Pours dark brown with a thick white head. Aroma of roasty malts, spices, pepper, grassy hops and exotic fruits. Taste is smooth, hoppy and slightly roasty with some spiciness, peppery notes, grass and fruits. Finish is hoppy, grassy and roasty with some warming chili notes. Okay black IPA with a touch of chili.
