Bottle from Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Jet black and opaque, with a tight, beige, head. Rich aroma of ripe blackberries, pine, plain chocolate and orange peel. Flavour had more chocolate, toasty malts, some black currant fruit pastille sweetness, followed by some pine and a dryish finish. Excellent.

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours almost black with a good tan head. Big sweet grapefruit and pine aroma. The taste is full with lots of resinous pine and sweeter tropical notes. The roasted malt flavour is a little in the background. Some coffee and burnt toast. Very tasty.

Black IPA. 330ml, brown bottle, cork and cask, Edinburgh. Scent is strong grapefruit zest and lightly bitter. Pours black with a thin brown head like a cola. Taste is earthy, full-bodied, and malty. Fantastic.

Bought in Rehill’s in Newcastle. Pours black with beige head. Looks great. The intensive aroma and taste that of pine and hops with a bit of resin. Medium Bitterness which lingers for a while. One of my favourite black IPAs. Very drinkable too. Recommend it.
