On tap at The Rake, London. Pours a dark brown colour with a small bwige head. Aroma is roasted malts and piney citrusy hops. Well done. Taste is similarly balanced but assertive, with espresso and nuts alongside to mango and pineapple. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable black IPA.

Bottle at home, 29th December 2011. Pours to form a small head, not a greta deal on the aroma a little metallic some hops and chocolate. Taste is good, but, not as good as other examples I have in stock, similar to Thornbridge Raven, nice beer.
