Cask handpull at William IV Birthday Bash 2011. Very dark brown beerwith thin lasting beige head. Can smell the hops from it on the table. Decent hops in mouth some ok choc. Not overly roasty. Light choc notes then a fizzing hoppy bitterness on the finish. Decent.

Taste: fruity start, mango, pineapple, bitterness. Aftertaste: fruity, dry bitter ending. I wouldn’t be able to tell it’s a black IPA though.
