A very dark IPA, had a pint on draft at a fine establishment known as "The Maltings" in South Shields. A strong drink in all senses really. Knocks ya teeth out.

FatPhil (13067) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Black, a bit watery loose head. Soft sweet roast aroma. Some sharpness - aggressive hops. Simple malts, not fermented enough, mashy and a bit messy. Hops decent, but not shining. Meh. A slightly hop-forward dark beer, that’s all.

Rewo (59) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Black with tan lasting head. Aroma dominated by sweet tropical fruits and apples, followed by some roasted malts, which however get intro the front row in the taste - roast, sunflower seeds and some coffee, followed by light/medium citrus bitterness and ashy aftertaste. Smells great but the taste could’ve been more complex and bitter.

Keg at Kings Arms. It pours dark brown with a medium light tan head. The nose is earthy, dirt, roasted malt, candied orange peel, milk chocolate and earth. The taste is bitter-sweet, dirty roast, citrus peel, caramel, touch of sherbet, coffee grounds, earth and peppery bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A bit dirty. Decent enough though.
