4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours almost pitch black. Rich and smooth taste. I’m actually amazed at how flavourful it is while at the same time being so smooth.Some citrus hints with a slightly bitter aftertaste reminding me of dark chocolate or coffee. A great beer that I truly recommend.

Bottle in Serbia. Pours black with a tan foamy had which leaves a nice lacing (and bubbles on top) while dissipating. Nose: pine tree resin, caramel, little veggie, chestnuts honey. Mouth: soft carbonation, notes of pine trees, a hint of smoked, basically fresh citrus juice. Balanced bitter after taste. Very good! Another please. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hops are hidden in the aroma but complex tasting. I had to think about it for a bit, but then it came to me. Mice. If’ you’ve ever had a mouse infestation, you know the smell / mustiness - this tastes of that. Tastes gamey with a faint tang of blue cheese / stilton. Small hint of bacon saltiness with bananas.Hops appear in the burp..Dry back end with roast, licqourice and mild hop. More like a good porter wih a hint of IPA thrown in.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask at Urban Tap House, Cardiff, late August 2014. Very nice, although the hops got a bit lost amongst the roasted malts making it more like a hoppy porter than a punchy black IPA.

Aroma of the IPA passion-fruit, pours a dark brown with a full frothy head which settles but has good retention, full bodied Ale with warming sensations, very good drinking, easily drink more of this BIPA
