COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Our black IPA, Conqueror is a rich, complex and very distinctive ale. It is brewed with a careful blend of five speciality malts along with Summit and Cascade hops to produce an intense combination of roasted flavours balanced with full fresh pine hop aroma.

Lovely black IPA which is true to the style. Great American hop aroma and flavor. Not violent hoppy but delicious easy-drinking.

Cask, Reading beer festival. Conqueror was ok, I had high expectations given some of the reviews and whilst a decent drink, it wasn’t one i would rush back to. This is a dark IPA which seemed worth a try. It had a good caramel flavour mixed with the bitterness of the hops made for unusual beer.

Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Very dark brown with an off white, thin foam. Aromas are nutty and toasted with dark berries and black tea. Floral and spicy with hints of cola. Woody pine with hints of smokiness. Flavours are sweet toffee with nutty, berry coffee and woody pine. Dry black tea with herbal, almost minty notes to finish. Decent.

Bottle from Waitrose. Pours a dark ruby, with a thin beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, blood orange and earthy grain. Excellently balanced flavours; liquorice, fruity hops, bitter grass, roasted malt. Finish is molasses, resin, burnt malt and coffee. One of my favourite British beer that is readily available in supermarkets.
