3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tomlinsons, Inverness 
Black, thin ruby edges on glass, thin tan head, some lacing
Aroma - soft citrus, hint of chocolate, light aroma
Taste soft roasted malts, touch of cola, some sweet dark malts, touch of chocolate, citrus hops, dab of piney hop, nice touch of floral hop, well balanced...good flavour but rather light though...i like BIPAs to be fairly robust
Palate - Medium carb, bit over carbonated thin to medium body. Soft mouthfeel, light bitterweet palate. Finish as main flavour with a soft linger with some roasted dark malts coming through
Overall - A black IPA with a mellow stouty flavour with some soft citrus and a dab of floral hop in there. ...there are many variations of BIPAs out there - this is the style I like.....Must try this in cask one day

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml from Boothís in Kendal, Cumbria. Ruby brown with off white head. Not the full chocolate malt bitterness of many BIPAís I would suggest, this has quite a sweetish, medium roasted body, biscuit malt, some crispness leading to a fruity hop flavour, a hint of pineapple, some citrus. Doesnít hit the major heights but itís a decent beer and worth a second glance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, very dark brown. Huge, frothy tan head. Ever so slightly vegetal, dark maltiness. Hint of dark fruit. Taste is much the same. Hop bitterness kicks in at the end. Overly carbonated. Would like to try this when brewery fresh. Would possibly be a stunner on cask?

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. Itís an almost clear one, dark brown in colorand with a dense, two-finger beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is lighlty roasted,with piney and citrusy ops. Some coffee notes. Bitter, roasted flavor with a touch of coffee, and the hops doing a mans job. Quite effervescent on the palate, medium to full-bodied and dryish. Lasting bitterness with a roasted touch. A nice one, but nothing special going on. 131019

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. BB 07/2015. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Clear dark reddish brown colour with a ridiculously big foamy light tan head. It takes an hour to pour this... itís extremely foamy...
The aroma is quite nice... thereís sweetish biscuity malt, mild roasted malt, salty liquorice, grassy hops and some dryness. The flavour is grassy hops, mild bitterness, dryness, mildly roasted malt and liquorice. Quite middle of the road Black IPA. Not bad by any means.
