Draught@Mes & Sim’s Wedding. Black colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, some plum/raisins notes as well as fruity and floral notes with mild liquorice lurking. Flavour is a bit berryish, plummy/raisiny as well as slightly liquorice, alcohol and some quite strong fruity and floral notes as well. Quite bitter. For once a Black IPA with attitude!

On tap at Mes&Sims wedding - thanks guys! Opaque black beer. Soft semi dry palate. Rich deep dark malt, plummy and figgy. A trace of raspberry jam. Mild hops, a little piney bitter. Finishes dry with a lingering tingling hoppy bitterness. Whisper of bubblegum as well. A really nice and quite unusual Black IPA.

MiP (13535) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Draught at Borefts 2011. Not much aroma. Almost black colour, seems muddy. The flavour starts off with a burnt plastic note, burnt rubber or whatever. Turns sweetish and roasted. Perhaps a hint of fruit. Seems like a decent beer, but the plastic is a bit of a turn-off.

Boreft Beer Festival 2011: Black with a small off-white head. Aroma of licorice, peat smoke and grass. Dry and hoppy flavour with heavy licorice and peat smoke. Very bitter.

Leighton (10543) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at RBWG Asheville Grand Tasting. Pours clear brown with a bubbly, white head. The nose has moderate roast, brown bread, burnt wood. Medium sweet flavor with woody dryness, bitter cocoa,near thy bitterness, dried dark fruits. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Light warmth to finish with more bittersweet baking cocoa, earth, wood. Not bad.

BBF 2011. Relatievely low on hops in the aroma but very intense in the flavor. Full bodied. Dark amber color. Earthy. mandarine curacao. Tobacco and roast. Long finish.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 18, 2011
Deutlich bananiger Antrunk, der sich dann mit Röstnoten vermischt. Wenig Süße, deutliche aber noch zurückhaltende Herbe. Der Hopfen sorgt neben bananigen Noten auch für die nicht störende aber auffällige Trockenheit. Gelungenes harmonisches Bier – mehr davon! 12/11/12/13//12

I thoroughly enjoyed giving people S.H.I.T. at BBF 2011, thank you urbeer for the opportunity. This one was black with a dark brown head. Aroma of Irish bogs filled with roasted coffee. Taste is vanilla, cocoa, smoke, dates, plums. Very nice.
