jjsint (3429) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Gravity cask at the 2017 Hinckley Beer Festival. Black with a light film of white head. Liquorice, pine needles, plum and chocolate. Bitter chalky taste with a sweet/sour fruity note. Body is a bit thin and flat, unfortunately. Still, it's an incredibly nuanced drink, bringing out the best of the style.

Not really that hoppy for something called an -IPA. Nice and smooth. Weirldy, its almost like a hoped up dark mild. Probably using debittered black malts only.

john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2017
Gravity Cask Half Pint at Craft 100 Festival at Craft Beer Co, Clapham, London in April 2014 - Very Dark Brown in colour (almost Black). Small tan head. Malty; roasty malts, coffee, liquorice, hint of chocolate. Fruity; grapefruit citrus. Hoppy; mild piney hops. Good malt/fruit/hop balance. Mildly bitter malty fruity throughout. Drying finish. Very drinkable; not extreme. Nice Black IPA! (2014-04-05)

Towey1989 (3157) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Gravity at The Stoke Beer Festival. A deep brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, red berries, grapefruit, orange, some liquorice, slight chocolate, a hint of pine and spicy, herbal hops. Taste of grapefruit, orange, dark fruits, some liquorice, a little green apple, chocolate and spicy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, dryish, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Wow, the spiciness tingles your nose. A hoppy BIPA. Good.

theprof (1133) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Cask. Pours very dark with ruby tint and full cream foam top like expresso. Aroma toasted malts and toffee. A pleasant sweet biscuit taste in the foreground with a piney hoppy bitterness beneath. Medium bodied with some carbonation on the finish.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2015
Cask at Cask, Pimlico. Dark brown with mocca head. Fruity and roasted malts aroma. Good fruity flavours, some acidity, hints of apples. Less roast in the mouth. Very likeable.

3.6
leaparsons (10696) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Cask, Leicester Beer Festival 2015. Near black with a beige head. Aromas are coffee with raisins and blackberries. A hint of cheesy funk with gritty dark cocoa. Flavours are dark chocolate with vinous notes and sweet berries. Rich coffee with a dry finish. Nice.

3.4
teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 18, 2015
Backlog rating. Cask at CBC Clapham, Craft 100, London. It pours a hazy dark brown color with ruby edges and a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts and dried fruits, toffee. Taste is quite roasty and bitter with notes of coffee, earth, cocoa, vanilla. Finishes resinous and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Ok BIPA, not well balanced thought
