1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Black with little head but some lacing. Punchy Kiwi hops are obvious and lovely. Very bitter but not unpleasant. Light on the mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. I would not class this as a Black IPA as it is full of roasted flavours (probably from roasted barley, chocolate and/or black malt). As a stout or porter it is too carbonated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Appellation Wines, Comely Bank branch. Pours deep dark brown with a good off-white head. Big roasted aromas, lots of chocolate mixed in with the hops, a bit too much for me, more like a hoppy porter or stout. Taste continues this theme, toasty and citrus. Full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Roasted, almost burnt, malty taste, dark chocolate, pine needles, ash and some dark spices. Fresh malt bitter ending. Medium bodied. Pretty nice (hotel room, Edinburgh 08.08.2013).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Benh. Cheers pal. Pours Deep Black Brown with a thick Tan head. My opinion of this one is similar to the other raters. It’s a hell of a beer in Porter terms. Fruity and thickly roasted. The hoppiness is somewhat apparent on the finish but almost indistinguishable during the drinking of it. That said, it is unusual in a stout or porter to get that slight rush of hops at the end so I salute it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting 2013 - London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, off-white head. Burnt chocolate aroma, some roasted malts. Light to medium sweet flavor with hefty charred malt character, a bit of bitter baking cocoa. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sturdy bitter char and earth to finish, with more bittersweet baking cocoa. Decent, but any juiciness to the hops is overtaken by the potent roasted malt character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks much to BenH for this bottle! Pours near opaque brown/black with an inch tall dark tan head. Smell is roasted malt, some char, molasses, citrus. Taste is coffee, char, roast, citrus...a lot of stuff swirled together in the flavor apartment. It ends with some dry char with mild bitterness. Body is medium with average carbonation. Decent stuff that has a lot going on but ends up being easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from BeerHive, Edinburgh 
Black with dark ruby edges, big frothy tan head. some lacing
Aroma of roasted malts, touch of coffee grounds, dark malts, dab of piney hop
Taste of roasted malts. dab of dark bitter chocolate, some burnt toast, touch of coffee grounds, some smooth dark rich malts in there, dab of piney citrus hops, not as fruity as expected, very stouty for a Black IPA
Palate - Medium carb, bit overcarbonated...after a good swirl...smooth quite oily sweet dark malts and bitter roast. Finish as main flavour with lingering burnt roast, some coffee grounds, rather dry, some bitter zesty hop hidden in there amongst the bitter roast, getting some floral hop coming through
Overall - Very porter/ dryish stout-like Black IPA, the hops are in the background to the malts. I did try the cask and I think it was more hoppy than this - a good swirl to get rid of excess carbonation improved the flavour and mouthfeel considerably. A decent very stouty roasted BIPA but I personally prefer them more fruity.
