Thick creamy tan head. Slightly hazy deep amber pour. Lovely bitterness. JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2012
Cask Chocolate brown beer, with B.C."H.". Ureum-rich, fruity hops, exotic fruitaromas. Chocolate malt, hops reduced to blending in and lend a bit of fruityness; melanoidins and a bitter, dry finish. Medium bodied at best, but quite slick, especially backthroat. Good, if unspectacular, well-hopped brown ale. jmgreenuk (10008) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 27, 2012
Dalston Black IPA. Cask at King Willliam IV, Leyton. A durian fruit aroma! Really. The flavour is medium bitter, with fruit, liqourice and spicy notes on the palate. A superb ale. gunnar (9703) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2015

Cask conditioned handpump Old Fountain London. A near black beer with a white bubbly head. Very good hops in this with minimal roast from the dark malts. Nothing sweet about this at all. Tons and tons of citric fruits; mostly grapefruit. Really really lovely. A near perfect BIPA. Plovmand (8624) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
