3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark ale, but light in palate. Smoky bitterness with a hint of hops. Some molasses and malt, but lighter and more refreshing than your typical dark winter ale. Nice

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Sadlers Peaky Blinder. Black with an orange hue, nearly opaque, foamy tan head. Aroma is burnt toffee, cola, ashy. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is smooth and fruity with mango, salty ash, touches of grapefruit, cola, grassy finish. Itís a very solid and ultra drinkable CDA on this showing. Good. Great to see this sort of beer creeping into the Wetherspoons mainstream.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2016 Bottle. Pours cola coloured with adequate but short lived white head. Head smells doughy and a little soapy. Head dissipates and reveals aromas of roasted coffee beans dark caramel and smoke balanced by faint red berries. The dominant note is milky cocoa. Chocolaty. Softly carbonated. Generally malty drink with the hops being bitter but very faint. Branded as a stout this beer would score well but as an IPA it really misses the point. Not punchy or hoppy. This is why the overall is higher than style for this beer. Itís pretty good as a dark session beer.

Cask at Brewhouse&BBQ, Síton. Dark brown color, small white head, lace. Toasted aroma with hints of dark caramel. Light-bodied. Smooth palate. Licorice, some fruity hops. Light ashy notes. More like light hoppy porter than CDA.

Bottle - very dark, reddish brown with no head. Strong hoppy and slight chocolate aroma. Ok on tongue, slight ting in mouth. Not particularly black IPA tasting and bit too bitter.

IPA hops with a twist, the eyes say no the tongue says yes. Liquorice ID in there as well as hopes. Nice one and a bit different

Bottle, from Bargain Booze, Brigg. Jet black, thin shortlived off white head and gentle condition. Pleasant sweet coffee and chocolate in the nose, with a little peppery spiciness and a hint of liquorice, initial sweet chocolate in the mouth, turning slightly dry and bitter with some coffee notes, lingering finish dominated by a gentle coffee bitterness and slight pepperiness.

cask at the old joint stock, Birmingham
pale clear brown, offwhite lacing, chocolate and toast, medium bodied and low carbonation, touch of pith from hops but not the impact expected from a BIPA - albeit at session strength.
