Dark Chocolate with tan head that collapses to a lacing. Pithy tangerine and chocolate. Rich orangey hop juice with a touch of milk chocolate in the finish. Perfect balance of hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Gentle carbonation helps it to slip down far too easily for 7.4%. Good work!

Bottle from BeerMerchants. An explosion of bittersweet flavour, perfect balance between hops and malt. As good as they come!

BeerViking (2688) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2012
Cask at the Magpie black with an off-white head. Aroma of clean hops, a little demerara, a faint hint of oak. Palate is rich with hops, hints of citrus and perfume, all superbly balanced by a firm treacle and liquorice malt body and a good alcohol bite.

Theydon_Bois (9930) - The ’Sham, Surrey, 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 " !!!

Leighton (11860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours black-red with a foamy, beige head. Big and juicy pine aroma with nice, moderate roasted malts. Medium to strong sweet flavor, some dark malts, light caramel, pine, grapefruit. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sticky, sweet and resinous finish, more roast, light cocoa, lots of juicy grapefruit and pine. Excellent black IPA.

Bottle from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon December 2011 consumed at home 09.02.12 Its rare indeed that I have three beers from different breweries in bottles on the same evening and that I give a score of 4+ to each of them. However tonight is such a night with Magic Rock, Kernel being joined in a fabulous threesome by Windsor & Eton. Pours very, very dark brown with a light beige medium head. Coffee and hops combine in the mouth to great effect, its a different beast when compared to the Kernel and Magic Rock offerings but no less impressive. Perhaps a bit more coffee and hops showing straight away, in fact it reminds me of the coffee IPA’s that I’ve had. Nice softness in mouth with a real juicy burst and then the coffee and malts take over before a bitter pithy but softening finish. Spent coffee grains remain and hoppy burps are aplenty. Roasty and with some unsweetened liquorice this is a corker. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov17 4.1

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
0.33l bottle. This one pours a deep dark brown body down in my glass and on top there is a great looking big and big-bubbly khaki head. It smells really nice this one! Lot’s of fruity hops, salty licorice, chocolate, marzipan, roastiness and some suiting boozy alcohol. Yeah, this has to be one of the better BIA’s I’ve nosed I beleive. It has a silky smooth oily mouthfeel and its soft to average carbonated. Great flavors as well! This is impressive stuff. A gentle roastiness juiced up with warming alcohol, soft chocolate, a fruity bitterness and it all feels really integrated and tasty all the way. Ends with a nice leather/licorice flavor that goes on and on in the aftertaste. Really impressive! 30.06.2012
