On tap, but I forgot which pub it was. Hoppy smell with grapefruit and citrus, dark bread and chocolate. Similar taste. Nice.

33cl bottle. Pours opaque black with a red hue and a nicely proportioned head. The nose has pine, grapefruit pith and just enough coffee. The taste has a burnt coffee note with a pithy finish. Medium to full bodied, big texture, relatively clean. Overall, a good andn interesting beer.

Bottle from mr_h. Hop & tar aroma. Very dark brown colour, not much head. Hoppy flavour. Smooth with bitter aftertaste. Good but not the best black IPA.

Black IPA seems to be flavour of the month. Pours black (surprise) with a decent white head. Malt and hops combine on the nose along with a touch of chocolate. Hoppy, citrus flavour with malt in the background.

Keg at CP&K. It pours jet black, with a thick beige head. The nose is pine, resin, toffee, charcoal, toast, roasted malt and charred wood. The taste is liquorice, resinous hops, salted caramel, dark toffee, pine, alcohol warmth, smoke, charcoal, leaf, toast and roasted malt, with a long bitter-sweet finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. A flavoursome black IPA.
