BeerViking (2294) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
Cask at the Brewery Tap, Leeds. Dark red with a coffee crema and not much aroma. Pine and citrus hop palate, plus notes of coffee and old wine. Quite smooth for a black IPA.

BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Half pint, hand pulled at a London Wetherspoons pub: Oct 2011. Advertised as a Black IPA, it looks and tasted like a stout to me, but without any body thickness. The nose was hopped toffee apple (Cascade hops used), with some roasted malts within the smells also. The taste a strange mix of bittering citrusy hops and dry roasted malty biscuits. Couldn’t get into it, just didn’t sit right on my palate. Try it by all means, but expect the flavours to be all over the place.

BenH (2149) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2012
Cask at HW. Black with no head. Aroma is slightly fruity, quite weak, nice bit not a huge mount going on. Taste has slight fruit, hint of coffee, hint of chocolate, again quite weak.  Thin and flat. Lacks punch, could do with being ramped up considerably.

Winchester Beer Festival. Initially the aromas suggested a mild: quite smoky and dark, however in taste this had the bittterness and alcoholic tang of an IPA. Interesting and very drinkable.

evergreen0199 (1929) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Cask at Cask pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A dark ruby/black coloured pour with a thin off white head on top. Roasty, malty aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, hoppy, fruity. Rather thin but alright.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2012
On cask at the 2012 NWAF, Manchester. Pours a brown colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma isn’t particularly hoppy, more malty with yeast quite prominent. Similar flavours. Quite dry to finish with mild carbonation. Not a black IPA.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2011
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. An attractive, deeply dark, ruby red colour with a loose beige head; the aroma is hoppy and slightly spicy; rather thin, with slightly earthy, fruity malts; than a gently tingling bitterness, leading to a dry, spicy hop finish. Not exactly a fullbodied IPA, but very drinkable.
