Dark brown black with pillowy "anzac" brown head. rich almost lactose like yeast esters and a touch of goosweberry, perhaps slightly manure, full bodied, gentle carbonation. yeast and hops working well together, slighty toasty dry pithy finish. Creamy, complex yet immensely drinkable for its strength. This needs to be a full time beer.

wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Poured nigh on black with a small tan head. Nose revealed coffee, spice, piney hop and dark malts. Similar components comprised the taste in addition to notes of spice, booze, choc and dark fruits. Plenty transpiring. Hop bitterness lurked with purpose in the shadows.Tasty Black IPA with quality throughout. Beer Camp range is very tidy indeed.

elbernays (310) - IRELAND - MAR 8, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Floral hops, malt, bread nose. Flavour is sweet creamy coffee with a slightly bitter finish. Biscuit in there with earth and nuts. Thought this was pretty nondescript.

Bottle at Tipplers Tap. Black and thick with a lasting cream head, laces well, big hops flavours and malty hints. A big favoured beer that is surprisingly smooth.

BillWyce (673) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Poirs opaque black with a 2-finger dark tan head. Aroma is mild, mostly roasted malt but with a touch of citrus. Medium body, lightly oily with a long finish. Dark, roasty malt flavor up front that gives way to citrus hops.

kathouse (811) - Nevada, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Persistent tan head tops the dark red body. Good body with more spice than hop. Finish is good and with the right amount of bitterness.

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at the Hangover. Citrus and funky aroma, herbal, sherbert. Great stuff. Taste is equally good. Crystals! (?) Lemon and weird, tropical fruit touches, light roast, lots of biscuit.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours out a deep dark almost black color with tan head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Has a nice Belgian floral aroma, dark roasted malts in the background and citrus hops. Smells amazing! Tastes a bit funky at first but has a nice bittersweet citric finish with some char. Palate on the beer is rich and full.
