3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask handpull, The Salmon, Leicester, 16/11/12. Grey-beige top on glossy black. Intense aroma featuring...Blackjacks, burnt cinder toffee, Neopolitan ice cream flicked with fag ash. Gritty cocoa/filter coffee dregs on palate; more Blackjack, juicy strawberry chew and blackcurrant, earthy coffee, chargrilled veg, aniseed. Black IPA in my book, if such a thing exists. Big, big bang for your ABV buck; would’ve loved another but the missus was driving and whisked me protestingly back down the 69.

Bottle - Big piney hops and dark roast. Jet black with a light brown head. Dark malts, bit of coffee and tons of hops. More like a black IPA.. Not enough coffee, but great anyways.
