Cask at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Black pour with a beige head. Aromas of licorice, dark fruit and a splash of coffee. Nice roast laden flavours, a spot of licorice and black treacle here and there. Nice bitter kick. Sharp bitterness in the finish. Tasty.

jamesie1857 (1694) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield - a beautiful black pour with a lacy white head, as nice as you’ll ever see from a bottle. The nose is fruit, malt, and more sour fruits. A bitter first bite, typical IPA, then malt and a bit of caramel. Nice oily feel, yet refreshing, great overall. Top notch.

RichTheVillan (4698) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from SarkyNorthener cheers Martin; almost black pour with a frothy light tan head, resinous pine aroma with a hint chocolate, taste has found fresh pine, like being hit with an xmas tree, plain chocolate, a hint of citrus, dark toasty malts, ticks all the CDA boxes.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
Flaske 330ml fra House of Trembling Madness, York. Delt med Rune på Nerstranda 10 Des. 14. Ultradyp mørk amber. Lavt skum. Aroma av tørket frukt. Smaken litt tørr. Blir veldig bitter etter hvert. Alkoholsmaken skinner gjennom.

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
330ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Good looking with a decent fawn-coloured head, spotty lacing down the glassware, and a dark brown coloured body with a rustic glint. Mixed aroma of dark fruits and dark malts. Brown and black malts upfront, caramel and chocolate, joined by bitter dark fruit and a nice little roastiness to the finish. Quite easy to drink. Clean in the mouth. Like it (Tromsø 10.12.2014).

Sjohnh (486) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Like many black IPAs, a confusingly enjoyable hybrid. Nose has grapefruit, dark fruits and light coffee. Taste has milky coffee, soft toffee and chocolate, pineapple and grapefruit. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very dark brown with off-white head. Good stuff.

Rototo64 (57) - Mouguerre, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2014
Brasserie du North Yorkshire ,UK. Inconnue au bataillon,cette bière a attirée mon attention d’abord par son étiquette franchement réussie et surtout le nom, Black Jesus, donc, Lord Have Mercy !!! c’est une Black IPA, tout est dit.au service, une belle mousse crémeuse, fine ,qui disparait assez vite. Au nez ,c’est assez étrange, déroutant meme, alors en vrac, fruité, chocolat au lait, un peu café grillé, beurré (?!!),on s’attend en bouche à du sucré, du suave,et au début,c’est ça ..sauf que ça dure pas..ya Jesus qui se rebiffe, y tend pas l’autre joue,y sort le nunchak, le gonze, sbraaaaak dans ta face, l’amertume bien sentie te remet à ta place de pauvre pécheur...Bien sympa, parceque ça n’en fait pas une bière extrème pour autant, ça passe bien, trés bien meme, une belle réussite.
