Cask at the Reading beer festival. Deep brown. Pine. Roast malt. Pine. Roast malt. Pine. Roast malt. Pine. A littlw touch of flowers is the only hint that there’s any more depth to this beer. Not that it’s bad mind; it’s just one- dimensioal.

AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2014
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely lacy head. Nose - chocolate orange, grapes and grapefruit. Taste - coffee, dark chocolate and a tropical citrus thing. Not pineapple - more like lychees. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry but yet elegant finish. No rough edges, really balanced. Overall - great black IPA. One of the best I’ve had, no question.

danlo (1532) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
330ml bottle from BeerRitz online store. Pours black with a red tinge, thick biege foamy head leaving lots of lacing and aroma of floral citrus hop along with burnt dark malts & coffee notes. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, nicely balanced against a juicy citrus hop bitterness. Smooth, medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, dry roasted hoppy bitter finish. Very drinkable Black IPA.
