jerd16 (225) - Gloucestershire, - APR 7, 2014
Pours black with nice small mocha head. Burning pipe tobacco, charcoal, maybe a little skunk and some faint citrus offer an aroma that is original if not appealing. Body is fairly thin in first instance, it gathers some steam but is ultimately disappointing. Flavours are muddled and oppressed by a really repugnant growing roasted-malt (primarily coffee) bitterness which carries to the finish. Yuk, this really isn’t for me.

On tap @BiercabNoire, collet epais et persistant, belle dentelle. Aromes fleuris et citronnées.Superbe présence en bouche. Café sur l?attaque mais ça ne dure pas, grosse amertume qui arrive vite et se poursuit longtemps longtemps...

wyzzywyz22 (2058) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Nose had some enticing hops in tandem with roasted malts and juicy citrus. Gentle carbonation. Flavour ran along similar lines to the nose with fairly robust hoppage in the house alongside notes of berry fruit, coffee and cocoa. Very moreish, a tasty BIPA - no doubt.

jamestulloch (1787) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Black body with a medium beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of Twiglet ash, cigarette butts and blackcurrant. Flavour of dark chocolate, coffee and dark cherry hints. Medium body with a creamy texture. Light fizz. A bit too ashy and malty to shine as a Black IPA.
