Osprey87 (1406) - WALES - MAY 3, 2014
Bottled Dec 2013. Black, foamy brown head. Aroma - pine, mint, lime. Body - medium, light spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste - Caramel and coffee offset against potent pine, menthol and spearmint. Slightly astringent, quite sweet, not bitter. The individual flavours are OK, but overall I feel like this doesn’t come together very well.

jamestulloch (1280) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Dark brown body with a large beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant, lime and green hops. Flavour is light and zesty. Medium body with oily texture. Soft fizz. I agree with madmitch76 - this is more like a Black Saison than a Black IPA - it’s just lacking the malty, chocolate qualities of a Black IPA. The missus concurred - ’It looks like a dark beer but tastes like a light beer’.

yngwie (13215) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle. A dark brown beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. There’s quite a lot of orange and orange peel in the aroma, with roasted malts, caramel and some faint spiced, licorice nots. There’s a pleasant bitterness in the flavor, with orange peel, roasted malts, licorice and some caramel. Full to medium body, pleasant carbonation, and with a lasting roasted finish. Pretty pleasant this one, tasteful, and a bit strange. 140426
