Bottle from BenH - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus and nuts - very nice! Taste of fresh aromatic hops, very light malt, citrus, nuts, straw and spruce. HInts of dark grains and herbs. This Black IPA was so smooth and delicious to drink that I was almost angry when my glass got emptier and emptier. Really great and highly enjoyable beer - quaffable, delicious, smooth drinkable. I loved it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours black with small creamy tan head. Coffee caramel in the nose. Light hops. Taste has vegetable under notes which I didnâ€™t get from last few bottles. Medium body, hides alcohol well. Good but best drunk fresher than this one. EDIT- the second half of this bottle had warmed a little a really opened up. Loads more flavour and hops come through. Really good.

Norwich Tap House. Black - funnily enough. Thin head. Nice full malts with sweet dates and cake. Tempered fresh hops give it a nice bitter bite without going over the top. Just a hint of chocolate in there as well. Medium body and carbonation.
