I was expecting more of a U.S. style black ipa, but this was more of a traditional British ipa, with a twist.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served on cask into an English half jug at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green (Jan ’12).
Copper brown in colour with a thin tan head.
Aroma comes across as vaguely citrus, but not too strong, also malt on the nose.
In the taste, light roasting, slight chocolate, didn’t get any sense of the citrus. A woody/earthy bitter hop taste on the palate.
Medium to light in body with a bitter aftertaste.

Cask at the Market Porter. Deep reddish copper in colour with a thin beige head; rich aroma of roasted malts; silky smooth, with a deeply roasted malt flavour and some hints of chocolate and smoke; the finish is strongly bitter with some citric hops and is prolonged and dry. A satisfying pint.
