danlo (1538) - 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.

johndoughty (4217) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. My first from this brewery and what a pleasant first impression it was. Black and quite powerful .Hops dominate at first then a distinctive bitter finish emerges that lingers. Rather nice.

gegwilson (1880) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle in the Head of Steam, Newcastle. Pours black with a cream head. Some good bitter hop piney flavour over some nice chocolate malt notes. Surprisingly refreshing. Tasty stuff. A fine black IPA.

jmgreenuk (5617) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a thin broken off-white head and some broken lace. The aroma is grassy hop with surprisingly a hint of sweet smooth creamy caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a lovely grassy nettle spice hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. As black IPA’s go, this is one of the best I’ve had. Served cool and very refreshing.

rikstar (1243) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Flesje meegebracht bij house of trembling madness in York. Donker bruin tegen zwart aan is dit bier met een mooie creme schuimkraag. De geur is erg aangenaam cacao, brood/gist espresso koffie en tegelijk ook iets fruitig van de hop. Smaak is ook top beetje melkstout met een goede combinatie van geroosterde mout en hop. Mondgevoel is niet eens bijzondere vol. De afdronk daarintegen wel. Toppertje

Garrold (2362) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. Very dark red. Thin, tight, tan head. Milk chocolate. Some coffee. Light gianduja nuttiness. Taste is chocolate sweet, then cocoa dry. Some unripe, red fruit bitterness balances things out. Creamy palate. Dry, long, bitter finish. Good tackle.
