Leighton (22298) - London, Greater London, - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at the Old Coffee House, London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Big pine nose with a hefty roasted malt backbone. Medium sweet flavor rife with dirt, thick pine, burnt grass, dark orange and grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Heavy resinous finish with lots of dirty pine, ripe citrus, moderate roast, light baking cocoa. No abrasive bitterness, which is very nice. Well rounded black IPA.

jflopsu (1795) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Pours a dark brown. Has a mix of roasted malts, caramel and nutty flavors. A mixed brown ale and IPA taste - sugar, roasted malts, nutty flavors with a bitter hop aftertaste.

zacgillbanks (5500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Very dark brown-black in colour with a thick head of white foam. It has a chocolate, nutty and spicy citrus and pine flavour followed by a smooth, creamy nutty, coffee and pine finish. Excellent!

Scottishchris (754) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from the beerhive. Black brown, tiny brown head. Sweet burnt sugar and resin. Medium thin body, very little carbonation. Caramel, earthy citrus, hops. A bit underwhelming.

jamestulloch (4327) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle from The Beerhive. Muddy brown body with a thin beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, tea and pine. Flavour of blood orange, earth and caramel. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Sweet and hoppy.

Rune (13502) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2016
Half, from keg at King William IV. A fawn-coloured head blanketing the glass. Deep rosewood coloured body. Earthy malts, nuts and citrus aromas. Well blended taste of caramel malts, nuts and orange. Malt-fruity ending including roasted citrus shells. Fine bodied. Pleasing (London 09.04.2016).

allmyvinyl (10995) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2016
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours clear brown with a thin beige head. Aromas of strong brown malt, light sour vinegar note. Taste is creamy, vinegar, astringent brown malt. Not sure about this one.

chimpgibbon (560) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Keg at Brodies. Nice lacing. Big toffee malty hit. Medium sweet toffee, not getting loads of hops here until the medium bitter end. Tasty nonetheless.

teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 28, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at Old Coffee House, London. It pours a dark brown color with a big beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and grapefruit. Taste is similar with nice bitterness from hops and roasted notes. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Very nice BIPA.
