GlasgowTAD (1392) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Pours almost black with a light beige bubbly head which forms a layer on the beer. Aroma is slight citrus along with chocolate and dried fruit notes. Taste is initially dark chocolate bitter followed by slight citric accentuations, with a mellow roasty finish. This is somewhere between medium and full bodied.

Scopey (12999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2011
Keg at Mason & Taylor (7% and named Dalston Black IPA). It pours very dark brown, with a ruby tinge and a thick creamy beige head. The nose is charcoal, resin and aniseed. The taste is resin, wood, charcoal, burnt caramel, salted liquorice, well hidden alcohol, roasted malt and a touch of smoke, with a big bitter-dry finish. Full body, fine carbonation and good balance. Really tasty stuff.

Should be aliased to Black IPA IMHO!
Opaque black beer, decent pale tan head. Dry palate, slightly soft. Smooth dark malt, roast and bitterness free! Nice piney hops with a trace of tropical fruits - domintaed by that Galaxy earthy mango. Dry finish with some hop bitterness and a little dark malt bitterness finally emerging with some malt cream keeping it company!. Nice!

Brodies Birthday Fest at the King William. Think this was labelled American Black? Opaque black beer that shows some red - brown at the edges. Residual tan head. Smooth palate with a tiny bit of carbonation. Smooth dark malt, robust but not bitter or roasty. Piney hops but the Galaxy hops also provide fresh zingy tropical fruits. Semi dry finish. A rich and tasty Black IPA and I thoroughly enjoyed my pint and the sneak preview of this the previous night - Cheers Jonathan!

Clear dark brown to black beer, no head, small white rim. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruits, mango, strawberries and raspberries, forest fruits, syrupy. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, mango, pineapple, bitterness. Aftertaste: fruity, dry bitter ending. I wouldnt be able to tell its a black IPA though.
