Keg at BD Camden, 13/12/13 - evidently before Fergus’s shower arrived !
Black with a moderate tan covering that thins to a pond.
Nose is light roast, hint of pine, bitter grapefruit, skunky hops, orange peel.
Taste comprises light roast, earthy cocoa, jammy dark berry fruit, pine bite, tropicals, green pepper, dank hop presence.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry closure with grsasy hop bitterness.
Respectable enough CDA, can’t say I was able to pick out coffee though! mR_fr0g (13500) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013

Tap at BD Shepherds Bush. Pours clear dark brown with a medium khaki head leaving nice lacing. Nose is quite herbal and full of grass clippings, quite earthy with moderate coffee roast. Taste really focuses on pine and big grassy driven hops. A hint of grapefruit with a nice pepperyness to the beer. Some light spice and espresso. Quite bitter and aggressive. So grassy. Very decent Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Keg at BD Camden. It pours black with a thick, creamy tan head. The nose is juicy pine, earth, roasty, toast, coffe grinds and some faint grassy/herbal accent comes through on the tail end. The taste is bitter, pine, toast, espresso coffee, resinous, earthy grinds, mild acidity, grapefruit rind, dark chocolate and touch of pepper with a dry, bitter finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Bold, brash and damn bitter. Pretty tasty and enjoyable stuff.

Enjoyed at Stone tap takeover @brewdogleeds. I’m told that stone basically took libertine black and pumped some high quality coffee in there. I love coffee, but like with beer, I want good coffee. The taste of this was lovely. Nice solid black IPA ...then a beautiful, smooth, high quality, espresso flavour comes through at the end. Curious to know what coffee is used - check it out. Great stuff. Was feeling a little tired but the caffeine in this perked me up nicely! allmyvinyl (11019) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours jet black, long-lasting light tan head. Big hop aromas, "Brewdog signature aromas" according to jeevan. Resinous and grapefruit I thought. Coffee comes through on the taste, with more hops. Creamy texture and long bitter finish. Very enjoyable.
