Cask at Pigs Ear. Opaque black beer. Bubbly tan head. Smooth silky palate. Silky dark malt supports resinous hops. Lovely hops which are mixture of pine and citrus. Light dry finish. Lovely and highly drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (15950) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2012
Poured from 330ml bottle at home into UK half pint glass (Jan ’12). This is a hopped up/sexed up version of the standard Conqeuror Black IPA (5% ABV). Deep chocolate brown verging on black in colouration with a pretty thin tan head. Great piney hoppy nose to this beer with a little sweet malt. Dried fruits - something tropical and citrusy in there. Hints of toffee, maybe even a faint taste of coffee a little Licquorice. There’s a lot going on in the glass. Some 7 or 8 cask barrels were also released into the wild and I was also lucky enough to sample this in that format at Egham beer festival (Nov ’11) - it didn’t disappoint! 2 word simple review for this great Black IPA - " BOSH - WALLOP " !!!
