Drank 12-8-17 while writing. Nice beer. Quite soft. More stout-ish than Black IPA. Especially in the beginning it’s malty. Hops coming through in the end. Good.

330ml bottle. Pours black with a thick beige head, decent retention. Aroma: citrus, fruity, roast malt. Taste: hoppy, citrus fruits, herbal, roast malt, pine, hint of chocolate, nicely balanced, nice bitterness. Medium body, smooth oily texture, moderate carbonation. What a great black IPA!

weihenweizen (4044) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Refrigerated 330 ml brown bottle, bottled April 25, 2017, poured into a glass from Leighton. Translucent black with small off-white head. Aroma is nice herbal hops, medium body, some carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is nice herbal hops, fruity dark malt, citrus hops, and a little evergreen hops. Not too heavy for me, really one of the best black IPAs I have had. Thanks Leighton!

JackMandarin (449) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle from Bridgend Services, Freuchie. Pours a very dark brown. Thin, off-white head that just about clings to the side as we go. Aroma has a powerful pine hit. Dank tropicality. Stone fruit aroma. Red berry jammy notes. Caramelised orange. Toasty aromas. Very light coffee and chocolate. Very well played. Taste has more red berry notes, both fresh and dried. Seville orange tang. A little citric and juicy lemon. Substantial bitterness. Long, bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel. Light roastiness at the end. Decent carbonation. Medium to full mouthfeel. Bench-marking gear here. Lovely!

Sjohnh (1010) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2017
These are daft beers, aren’t they. Confusion at the outset as the cola / stout appearance yields to a piney, citrussy fruit salad. Then, if not done well, it’s a horrible clash of coffee and fruit. When done well, like here, the hops are fruity and dank and the roasted malt and chocolate provide a subtle backbone. Good body too.

R4N5H (1287) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2017
On tap at the Buxton Brewery taproom on 26-May-2017. Almost black with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and cocao nibs. Full body and medium carbonation. Taste of malt, chocolate, molasses and hops. A lovely smooth bitter hoppy chocolatey finish. Pretty good Black IPA.

2.8
ironcontra (401) - POLAND - JUN 8, 2017
Fairly opaque with a light head and good lacing. Low body and fairly carbonated. Outside of yer customary IPA hoppiness you’ve got some bitter black coffee flacors thrown in, a bit piney, a bit smokey. A solid refreshing BIPA but definitely not on a level of its own
