TedE (1565) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2018
330 ml bottle into glass. 12 months past BBF date. Very dark red/brown beer with foamy tan-coloured head. Nose is citric fruit and caramel. Good body, smooth texture. Full of malty goodness with hints of bitterness in the finish. Very nice sessioner.

This article explores the influences of light on human health and suggests that exposure to artificial light may have harmful effects. The effects of ligght on mammalian tissue are either direct or indirect, depending on whether the immediate cause is a photochemical reaction within the tissue or a neural or neuroendocrine signal generated by a photoreceptor cell. Light exerts an indirect effect on the ovaries of rats and this effect is mediated by photoceptive cells in the retina. The light cycles involved in night and day and changing day lenght appear to be associated with rhythmic changes in mammalian biological functions such as body temperature. Light levels and rhythms also influence the maturation and subsequent cyclic activity in the gonads of mammals, with the particular response seemingly dependent on whether the species ovulated once a year or at regular intervals. Ovulation can be accelerated in diurnally active, monestrous animals by exposing them to artificially long days. Pineal activity in rats can be suppressed by exposing the animals continuously to light. Such findings on the multiple and disparate effects of light suggest the view that health considerations should be incorporated into the design of light environments. The illumination provided by artificial indoor lighting is often less than 10% of the light normally available outdoors. It is urged that decisions on lighting be based on knowledge of man's biological needs as well as economic and technoloical considerations.

Yorker (2142) - Holstebro, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2017
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are grapefruit, roasted malt, and liquorice - with a bitter finish.

Barwa czarna z przebłyskami, piana niska. W aromacie ciemne owoce- super czuć simcoe. Poza tym kawa i czekolada. Bardzo udane połączenie.

Davros IX (604) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home as the Prototype - A very good black IPA. Nice malt and a great kick of hops, alongside a great mouthfeel. Would happily drink this again and again and again

CanCrusher (1189) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle 0,33L, Dark chestnut brown color with average, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of peach, tangerine, roasted malts, sweet dark fruits. Taste starts moderate bitter, woody, tart with light note of smoke. Finish has the same level of bitterness and metallic aftertaste. Medium and not too heavy body, dry texture and soft carbonation. Have this one 3 months after date expired, but didn’t noticed anything wrong. Just an average black IPA...

Fruity; grapefruit citrus. Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Good malt/fruit/hop balance. Bittersweet. Roast coffee malts meet citrus fruit and piney hops. Decent. (2016-01-04)

bartlebier (4242) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
33cl, Nov2016 as Prototype Black IPA sampled in transit. - Kafir leaf, lime peel are the obvious concentrated exotics that lure you into another one of Brewdog’s PoMo ales, hop-engineered to ultra-clean sessionability. Body slightly slick yet satisfyingly dry, zesty citrus going into all kinds of Far Eastern tangents (Thai basil mintiness, lime) before settling on dry liquorice and orange peel-coated caramels. Ideal strength and use of abv.

Maris (1625) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 22/11/2016 (labelled Prototype Black IPA). Pours a very dark brown with little in the way of head. The nose is quite pleasant - primarily fruity hops. Taste wise, it has some mild roastiness, a good dash of sweet stone fruit, and a moderate hop bitterness at the back. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Decent enough but unremarkable.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle @cgarvieuk. Speedway tasting (Dec 2015) [Rating Backlog] Pours black with an off white head. Nose is perfume, chocolate and pine. Taste is lime, chocolate, pine, not a fan.
