4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at BrewDog Camden on 19 October. Poured a opaque black with a thin black head. Aroma of smoked malt, coffee and dried fruit. Citrus hop flavour with peat and cured meat. Finishes with burnt malts, caramel and smoked wood chips and a little spicy edge. Black IPA, smoked chilli; there is no part of this I don’t like and this worked very well. Joint favourite of the collaboration festival with the Cromarty Black Rocker.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[keg, BrewDog Edinburgh] Slightly hazy blackish/brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is a lot of things, slightly – some chilli, a touch of smoke, a bit of citrus, an edge of pine. Flavours are very similar – loads of elements all sitting quietly together. Nothing clashing, but nothing standing out. Interesting

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 28.09.2013, tap @ Borefts:
Tiny bubbly mediumlasting head. Aroma is chili, licorice, puffed rice, rubber, hops, coffee, roasted grain, hay, grass. Taste is slightly dry and roasted, dark malts, burnt caramel, rubber, burnt coffee, hay, licorice, hints of cardboard and chili. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Boring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog shoreditch. Aroma is Roasty berry and hint of smoke. Opaque black with a thin light tan head that fades. Flavour is slight medicinal phenol, wood and smoke. In the finish there is classic american c-hop. I like this. It is an interesting take on the black IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg @ BrewDog Camden. Hard to tell in here but looks pretty black to me. Sweet aroma. Dark chili chocolate. Floral notes. Tastes sweet with very bitter aftertaste. Wanted more from the chilli, almost too balanced. Overall Ok. Good actually but maybe I expected more.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg at BD Shoreditch. Dark brown pour with little head. Nose isn’t the best but it’s not off putting or anything. Pretty standard roast with some light chilli and chocolate coming through. Taste is your typical dark ale roast with some ashy undertones and a bitey chilli finish. Very peppery. Not balanced at all. Not my thing

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at BrewDog as 48 Miles Later. It pours darkest brown, near black with a small beige head. The nose is roasty, spicy chilli, orange, lime, grapefruit and dull smoke. The taste is roasty, some acidity, chilli, vegetal notes, grapefruit, orange zest, pithy lime and wood with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Balance not really there in my opinion. So-so.

Dark mahogony brown with a thin light tan head.
