On tap @ brewdog Sheffield. Thin creamy tan head. Clear black pour. Lovely bitterness. I agree with the gentleman from Brum. Itís a black ipa.

jmgreenuk (5802) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 10, 2014
Tap at Brewdog Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is dry earthy light grass hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a strong grass nettle hop light mint palate and a long mint bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I canít say that I agree itís a brown ale. Itís more like a flat black IPA for me. Too many hops for a brown ale but Iím not complaining!

Very nice hoppy brown. Nose of tropical fruit, earth, pine, and toast. Nice balanced flavor with a nice abundance of hops unusual for the style. Medium bodied.

brokensail (13202) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap @ Yard House Costa Mesa. Chestnut colored pour with an off-white head. Really interesting hoppiness. Lots of tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. Pleasant roasted malt, cacao, and toasted bread. Reminiscent of a black IPA on the nose and tongue. Moderate roast and dark chocolate/cacao notes. Fairly bitter, but a slight toast sweetness and plenty of tropical fruit.

Part of a six-pack sampler at Yard House Virginia Beach. Beautiful dark black, nice lacing. Toasted nut aroma, but the first thing I tasted was licorice. Coffee and chocolate as well.

chadje (192) - California, USA - APR 21, 2014
4 oz draft. Pours a deep blackish brown with thin brown foamy head, Aroma is light very hoppy. Taste is of citrus hop note and a hint of malt character. A very good brown ale and almost feels like its cheating as it tastes like a black IPA.

AirForceHops (4501) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2014
4 oz. Draft sample@ Amesbury Ale House. Dark brown, mahogany in color with thick head in the sample glass. Aroma is piney hops, earthy nuttiness and light chocolate. Pleasing aroma.

Very hop forward Brown ale. Pine and earthy hops upfront with some moderate roasted notes in the center. Light chocolate and burnt nuts gives the brew a nice balance of the blast of hops in the front end. The finish shows herbal hop notes with a decent amount of pine resin. The body is medium with the carbonation giving a mild creaminess to it. The drinkability is really high for a brown. I could drink more of this and for me I could session at 7%. Really nicely made.

Pine, subtle purple grapes, toast. Deep dark ruby with a mostly fading head. Bready, fruity, piney, bitter, subtle cherry cola notes. Medium bodied, chewy, sticky.

Dogbrick (9425) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Sample at Station 2. Pours a hazy chestnut color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roast malt, pine and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, resiny hops and citrus. The finish is sweet with a cocoa and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.
