Martinsh (296) - Crewe, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2020 Tap at Tap 40, Crewe (as 6.3%). Bit of a complex case this one. It calls itself an India Porter, but I would say it’s really a Black IPA. It pours jet black with a strong but transient beige head. The nose has coffee to the fore, but plenty of citrus in the background. The initial taste is sharpness, bitter like lettuce base. But there is also coffee and chocolate with burnt toast hints. The finish is bitter black coffee, and alcoholic warmth in the stomach. Excellent !

DeanF (6230) - New Westminster, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2019 This pours a perfect black with a beige mousse that would make French pattisières fill with envy. There's a strong but subdued coffee, intelligently refined, not overly cloying nor syrupy, just an honest delivery that seems so basic in its elements but somehow seems to elude many breweries on this side of the world. The flavour is smooth barley, honest hops not trying to fry your tastebuds. A great mouthfeel with solid oiliness. Wonderful in all respects, nothing amazingly unique but every element is balanced and delivered in the right amount at the right time.

alteregoo (3179) - Kalisz, POLAND - JUL 15, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2019 Praktycznie czarne, z obfitą, drobną pianą. W zapachu żywiczny chmiel dominuje. W smaku półwytrawne, goryczkowe, czekoladowe, palone, dość wysoko wysycone. Trochę takie BIPA.
