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.

Cask hand pull at GBBF. Dark maroon color. Aroma of burnt cocoa and coffee. Taste is similar. Nice black IPA, would be improved by slightly more aroma hops.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a reddish dark brown with a small white head. Very fresh and citrusy hop aroma atop a slight roastiness. Medium body, hard roast even with a smoky touch. Fairly malt bitter finish. A solid offering if the roastiness is a bit rough. 130711

Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell, guest beer. Black with a fluffy creamy head that lasts a few gulps. Crystal malt and hoppy aroma, and a little sweet. Very good black IPA, sharp, light and a little dry. One of the best IPAs in the UK?

Big beige head. Deep dark red body with strong carbonation. Roasty tropical fruit aroma with earthy minty coffee notes. Dry roasty dusty earthy taste with a background of tropical fruit and wild berries. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dry resiny tropical fruit aftertaste with burnt metallic notes. Buttery minty finish. It’s perfectly OK, but not really great. (0.5l bottle, beermerchants.com.)
