Continuing our series of beers commemorating classic albums from the post-punk/new wave era (and released 33 years ago) we will be releasing in August a Black IPA called This Year’s Model. The beer commemorates the 33rd anniversary of the release of Elvis Costello’s iconic album. Why a Black IPA? Well it seems that every Tom, Dick & Harry is making Black IPAs at the moment so we saw that style as being flavour of the month, or, perhaps ’this year’s model’. Stop that bandwagon, we want to get on...

Cask at CBC, London. Pours a shiney, black-brown with a low, off-white head. Bit of cocoa in the nose, some berries and yoghurt. Yep, yoghurt. My suspicions of yoghurt are confirmed in the flavor - more sweet yoghurt. Mild roastiness, some earthy and woody bitterness, some light grass and pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate roast finish, some more berries and dairy. Kinda weird, but alright. Would need to ramp up the hop character a bit to respectable Black IPA.

Gravity, Tamworth 2011, 09/09/11. Good as black with a well-retained yellow-tan head. Pure compressed vegetal matter aroma; coal, dung. Better flavour with more black chocolate, lots of bog and coal. Nowhere near enough hop to be classified as anything but a strange English stout. I like these guys but this was disappointing- sink even had a slurp.
