COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular. Currently 6.0% in bottle.

Black Rocks is a Black IPA. It is very dark in colour, yet has many characteristics of an India Pale Ale. Late mash additions provide the colour without the harsher, roasted flavours of the dark malts. The beer has a blackcurrant aroma and flavours of liquorice and pithy grapefruit

Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear, red-brown with a creamy, tan head. Nose holds lots of sweet grapefruit and restrained roast. Medium to big sweet flavor with lots of grapefruit, pineapple, orange and mango, blended with a sturdy roasted malt character, pine and darkened grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Sticky, resinous finish with dark toast and grass, more grapefruit, burnt pine and dark citrus. Just an overall super black IPA. Excellent.

330ml bottle from Beer Ritz. Has a lovely citrus aroma that hovers above the glass with a frosty freshness. Smooth, dark body with some lovely dark malts, a touch of grapefruit and a pinching bitterness on the finish, mellowing to a biscuity dryness. An exceptional beer.

Black color with nice creamy head, lacing glass. Lovely aroma, very hoppy. Grapefruits, pines, resins, tropical fruits, blackcurrant - smooth chocolate, roasted malts in background. Taste is bitter. Velvet and oily texture. Notes of grapefruits, pines, resins, citrus, grass. Delicate hints of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts in the background. Excellent, very drinkable and tasty beer. With eyes closed, it tastes like a pale version of the IPA.

Aromatyczne chmielne piwo. Lekko tostowe i opiekane. W smaku przyjemnie goryczkowe. Ale nie jest ciezkie w piciu. Pieknie wyglada. tzn jest czarne, se spora piana ale srednio trwala. Metnosc spora bo nic przez swiatlo w szklanicy nie przeswitywalo. Polecam amatorom ciemnych IPA
