Absolutely delicious. Bitter, fresh citrus and pine tastes from the hops. Burnt coffee and cherries from the malts.

zacgillbanks (2129) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
6.5% bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A black beer that pours with a large creamy head. It has rich orange marmalade and juicy fruit flavours, berries, chocolate, pine and roasted notes on the finish. Superb!

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/5/13] Draught at the brewery in London. 6.5%. Dark brown to black with tan head. Aroma with roastiness and piney hops. Roasty flavor with a bit of chocolate, piney hops, citric notes and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice.

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Nose is big on the citric hops with some moderate toast and light cocoa. Kind of earthy. Nice. Citric hops in great unison with balanced roast. Works well. Nice stuff

Steasy66 (847) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Not sure if I’m rating the right beer, mine says IPA Black but is 6.5%. Bottle from Kris Wines. Black with tan head, once the head settles it looks like dirty dishwater. Aroma is big and citrusy. Flavor opens with hops but finishes way too roast. Not my thing.

Lowenbrau (1878) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 14, 2013
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Roasty, herbal aromas. Pours black with average tan head, some lacing. Medium body, average to low carbonation, som oily texture. Taste is mild bitter, roasty, some herbal flavours. Then bitter develops with temperature, ending dry and harsh. Quite enjoyable.

JonMoore (1846) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle. Black with thick tan head. Aroma of malts, chocolate and grapefruit. Taste of fruity hops and malts and chocolate. Medium body, light carbonation. Very good.

Garrold (1117) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Dark copper colour. Beige, thin, but creamy head. Aroma is roast malt, chocolate cake, privet leaves. (So, just a bit going off then...). Taste has a hint of salt. Then a big, dry, bitter finish, that slightly overwhelms. Complex.
