Bomber. Pours an opaque black with a moderate, foamy off-white head. Aroma soft caramel and hops. Flavor sweet balanced nicely with bitter. Body medium with soft carbonation. Overall a very nice specimen of the type, but may lack the complexity I?d like to see, and the hops/IPA character takes a back seat where I’d like to see it more up front.

thedm (5139) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 24, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was black malt and malty. The smooth mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mediumly tingly finish with a bitter dark malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of black malt roasted malt wood mild hops burnt malt and breads. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Black, almost pitch black, lightly brown head. In aroma mainly malty base, some roasted malt and just hints of citrus hops. In taste malty, citrus notes. MEdium body, medium bitter finish. Old bottle but not that bad in the end, wish I had more fresh one.

Bottle courtesy of dad consumed at dads, Kilburn, Derbyshire, Thursday 15th January 2015. Pours black but I guess it was always going to with a light beige head. A light citrus nose with some malt. Taste is fruity some pine resin a little chocolate and some spent coffee grains. Jolly decent. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle: Black pour, outlined with some dark brown. A tan head settles quickly to a thin layer. Modest lacing on the glass. Aroma of sticky pungent hops, dank, full of hemp oil & resin. Some sharp ashy roast in the back; bitter citrus, heavy herbaceous notes. Flavor is loaded with hops as well, kind of wet & spicy, but still carrying through with tons of oily, dank resins. Getting more notes of white pepper, grapefruit pith, ashy leaves, burnt roasted malt, & charcoal. Burnt. Hoppy. Oily. Finish is reminiscent of dry, over-toasted rye bread. Not bad, perhaps just a little overboard in terms of perceivable bitterness.
