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.

tonycaviar (76) - HUNGARY - OCT 29, 2011
5%-os laza black ipa! Teljesen fekete folyadék kevés, de annál szebb kapuccsínószínű habbal. Az illata a savankás ale-illat és némi sajtszag keveréke. Az íze elég meglepő, mert a kávés pörköltség és a száraz malátaíz mellett egy olyan friss, túlégetett kenderes növényi aroma is szóhoz jut, ami IPA-knál is ritka. Szuperjó sör!

shoulderbroken (2842) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 14, 2011
Cask at Bree Louise. Jet black with a thick creamy beige head. Aroma is very hoppy, pine and floral, but with a hint of perfume. Taste is satisfyingly bitter, hint of pepper and slight smokiness. Nice bitter finish. Slightly disconcerting perfumey after taste was a bit off putting, but still quite nice. Very smooth in the mouth.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2011
Cask at Bree & Louise, London. Dark reddish brown color. Roasty aroma and flavor with plastic, petrol as well as some citrusy and peppery hops. Unpleasantly plasticky.

In cask al bree louise, Londra; una discreta pignazza ma buona, purtroppo essendo un nuovo stile č difficile fare confronti

Another Black IPA enjoyed during our tasting session. Almost completely black, with an interesting citrus hop aroma. Quite heavy on the dark roast malt character - is that good for a black IPA? Very tasty beer. Good stuff.

olio (7907) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Cask.
Rated on 20110721.
Pours dark ruby black-red colour with minimal head. Aroma of fruity hops, lots of malts and some grass. Flavour of malts, fruits and caramel. Medium to full-bodied and a bit complex but something is still missing.

Lovely fruity citrus hop aroma. Super full palate. Smooth. A bit of everything in the taste, aromatic hops, and a decent roasted malty body too. Some roast in the finish, balances the hops well. Very well crafted dark hoppy beer.

HogTownHarry (6278) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Cask at The Wenlock Arms - Aug 20 2011. Clear deep ruby/black. With a large frothy light brown lasting head. Very soft aroma and taste - more wheat than grain, very light bitterness, just wild flowers and a wisp of resin - nice light roast malt, only a hint of coffee. Light body, still, decent sweet/bitter balance (is not really either, this is more a mild than anything) - quick finish. Quaffable - but this is no way an IPA, black or otherwise.
