Cimbasso (295) - - JAN 11, 2015
Sampled from a bottle purchased in Edinburgh (thanks Rory and Rachel!). Pours black with a good tan head. Malt and citrus aromas. The taste has plenty of roasted malts, with the associated coffee and chocolate flavours, but mixed in with grassy and bitter hops. There is a distinct, astringent gooseberry/grapefruit flavour along with the charred malt taste. It is a bit like the flavour of a slightly caramelised baked grapefruit, if you can imagine such a thing. An interesting and original beer, but I find the roasted flavours do not combine particularly well with the more citrusy notes.

prawlie (1208) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottled. Toasty, dry black IPA. Lightly roasted. Enjoyable stuff but lacks complexity. A touch of golden syrup.

Travlr (13718) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2015

Pyrmont (10) - - NOV 15, 2014
Fine malted smell. Good taste at first, but there are much after-taste, which leave it a little bit boring. Nice dark/black color.

gegwilson (1535) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Pours mahogany with a good foamy cream head. Pine in the aroma and flavour, but not overly prominent. Plenty of roasty flavour. Creamy coffee and a little liquorice. Enjoyable.

ElDesmadre (1776) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Green hoppy aroma of grass, gooseberry and citrus. Soft, creamy mouthfeel luckily dominating the astringent bitterness, with a pleasant maltiness providing the beer with notes of earth, chocolate and forest fruit. Quaffable and tasty.

SNL (323) - - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours very dark, small tan head. Not much IPA nose or taste, reminded me mostly of a porter. Soft carbonation, heavy body.
