Tap at Chapel Farm. Pours a pitch black body with a creamy off black head. Aroma just explodes with passionfruit and citrus fruits backed by slight chocolate undertones. Taste is pretty much the same just a really fruity beer so easy to drink and hard to put your glass down. Not overly bitter and the chocolate notes make it really smooth. Its like a black hop hog. Wish they bottled this beauty. One of my favs

Huge charred malt - hops lost in the malt but some effect although unfocused - must be a style preference as it’s too much malt for me.

Deep black pour with light tan head. Slight cocoa aroma under roasted malt, huge citrus and passionfruit. Taste is toffee, dark chocolate, lemon/lime. Cracking good beer.

Tap at Feral Brewery. Pours pitch black with a short off-white head. Super citrusy nose, lots of lime, passionfruit and grapefruit. Taste carries the citrus flavours plus dark malt flavours, touch of liquorice. Sunny autumn Sunday, perfect beer for the occasion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. This would have to be the best black IPA that I have head. Deep black colour with a good head, the flavour of this beer is what stands out for me. I think it is the fruitiness that cuts through some of the hoppiness, a distinct citrus touch.

Draught @ Feral Brewing Company, Baskerville.
Presents well. Big, dollop of tannish foam atop a sparkling, darkest ruby body. Smoke, ash and tobacco atop a whole pineforest and fruit punch bowl of hops. Indecisively soft on the palate; subtle, creamy and yet ashen and powdery in mouthfeel. Quite light on; smoke and dusty dark malts, a touch of cola beer upfront with a backdrop of piney, floral and spicy hops. Laxed in bitterness on the swallow. The finish oh so long and full of flavour with a fragrant perfume and low citrus. The hops a little faded on this one - older sample perhaps! This is quite a sessionable number as is though. I expected in your face but this was soft and pleasing. Not too shabby!!

My favorite black IPA. Almost indescribable flavors. The mixture of malt and citra give it this insane toffee complexity. I really wish they would start bottling this.

Awesome aroma and taste of citrus fruit, really can’t say much more for the beer, those flavours and smells explode out. Really enjoyed it.

Beautiful citrus fragrance. Lively sour aftertaste with nice complexity. Nice afternoon ale.

More on the IPA side of things than the stouty porter flavour. Head dropped off quickly, but the flavour finishes with a lovely citrus note. On tap, Bier Deluxe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
