Very tasty. Spicy black ipa, with some bitter green hops, syrup or treacle like overlay. Top effort.

Bottle [thanks for bringing this jmgreenuk] @ home. Opaque pitch black color, full sized lightly creamy off-white to beige head that lasts for a long time and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts and nicely hoppy. Taste malts, slightly roasted malts and a lot of hops. The beer is very nice, but I think a black IPA should be a mix of roasted malts and hops and in this case the hops dominate the roastyness, so itís not completely balanced. In the end though, itís a nice hoppy, nicely bitter beer with a decent malty base and I like it a lot. And after all, thatís whatís most important isnít it?

Keg @ London Fields. Deep reddish brown with a creamy tan head. Nose is pretty nutty. Toasted brown bread smothered in Nutella and toffee. Not a lot of personality. A more 3-dimensional set of flavors. Bitter medicinal herbal hops. Somewhat dank. Plenty of cheesecake. Hints of tart blackberry. Ashy roasted malt. Very dry on the finish. Strong carbonation, somewhat oily. A bit all over the place.

Bottle picked up at the brewery tap room. Pours a very dark reddy brown with an off white head. Nice aroma with hints of coffee, choc, lemon, pine... Medium body, medium carbonation. Grapefruit, dark choc, coffee cake, lemon, wood, pine... Nice balance. Tasty.

jmgreenuk (4002) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark mahogany with a thin and bubbly off-white head. The aroma is roasted malt, spicy hops, a little citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with a big grass nettle hop spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Really great black IPA. One of rhe best Iíve had for sure. Just love those hops and the malty smoothness.

Cask at the brewery tap, citrus hoppy nose with hints of coffee, rich body with roasty malt, bright citrus hops, touches of mocha and grapefruit, faint hints of red fruit and treacle. Gorgeous...
