[Reading Beer Festival, 2015] - Seren Brewery Indian Ink, 6.5%, dunkelbraun, fast schwarz. Schokoladig-lakritzig im Aroma, deutliches Vanillin. Mittlerer, eher schlanker Körper, leicht ölig. Kaffee und Bitterschokolade im Antrunk, leichte Zitrusnote. Zur Mitte deutlicher auch Zitrus, Kaffee, und etwas Harz. Kaffeebitterer Abgang, immer noch minimale Zitrusnote. Anhaltend bitter kaffeeartig im Nachhall. Bisher das beste Bier des Tages, gutes Kaffeestout.

330ml bottle from Beermerchants

BBE 31.8.15 - Pours dark brown, almost black with a thick white head. Aroma of grass, roasty, almost burnt malts, hints of citrus, pine and resin. Taste is slick, roasty and slightly burnt with hints of grass, citrus and ash. Finish is roasty, burnt and ashy with hints of citrus and pine. A bit too heavy on the burnt malt notes.

danlo (2492) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
330ml bottle from beermerchants.com. Pours black-brown with a foamy cream coloured head. Aroma of hoppy citrus with roasty malts. Taste is tangy fruity, citrus, with dark malt, chocolate, coffee notes, hoppy citrus & roasted bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roast bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Bottle from gravity station Cardiff
pours dark brown black with beige lacing. Slightly wild esters on the nose. Medium body and carbonation, citrus peel and chocolate but definitely some Brett in there, I enjoyed it but it’s stomping all over the hops so we’re left with a stock stout. I expect had I left it longer it’d be even wilder.

Fabulously fresh hops - floral, fruity & earthy with a smooth palate & great coffee with a whole load of fruit salad - sounds odd but works brilliantly. Rated by BrewTom

JKaranka (57) - Cardiff, WALES - JUN 7, 2014
Pours dark brown. Nice hoppy and toasty aroma. Not too thick, relatively easy to drink. Bitter, hoppy, ground coffee, marzipan and fruity hops. Really nice East India Porter but gets a bit heavy after a while.

downender (7863) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Barley Mow, Bristol September 2013. The brewer of this was also responsible for the Bristol Beer Factory’s Indian Ink, which was based on his champion home brew. Fruitcake notes, some slight roastiness, citrus hops and a dryish finish. Very good and the slate pump clip looked good too.
