Sampled this black IPA at the Paisley Beer Festival, Paisley Town Hall in May 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with a buff coloured head. Short aroma of dusty coffee bean evident. A thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Burnt toast note of black malt on initial taste. This gives way to a distinctive, sharp, woody blackcurrant flavour with oak tannins. Hop resins seep in to give a dry bitter aftertaste. This dry note continues well into the dry nutty roasted finish. A decent enough session Black IPA (although not too many of those to be found north of the border) and well recommended.

On cask at the volunteers arms. Dark red beer with a decent white head. Nice malty coffee aroma. Quite light for a black IPA. Tastes of coffee, malt and some toasted barley.

Bullit (4460) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAY 1, 2011
Cask (gravity) @ Paisley Beer Festival 2011. Quite looking forward to this one. It delivers, but a bit light bodied. Brown colour, tan head. Aroma is hoppy and a bit of pine, some toastiness, bit of caramel. Flavour is hoppy, pine. Fairly bitter and slightly dry finish. Very well drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Cask @ Paisley Beer Festival 2011. Resin hop aroma. Very dark brown colour, not much head. Roasted hop flavour, bitter aftertaste. A bit weak & watery for an IPA.
