On tap @ Hanging Bat Edinburgh. Mild malty aroma and tastes of smoke, cigarettes, and saltine crackers. Somewhat watery for a black IPA.

AshtonMcCobb (6843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2017
Bottle from Hanging Bat. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - wafts of canned oranges and apples on opening. A general expansion into fruit salad by the time the pour has finished. On closer inspection add some resin and molasses. Taste - more fruit salad intermingled with molasses, dark chocolate and toffee. Marmalade. Lime taper on the finish. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - great stuff. A very narrow style to get right but this was nailed. First 4 of 2017.

Lore (2863) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 22, 2016
dark brown colour, moderate sized beige-ish head; aroma of cocoa powder, overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine resins and grape seed; taste of dark chocolate, overripe tropical fruity sweetness, grapefruit, grassy and resiny notes and grape seed bitterness; great black IPA!

3.7
Davros IX (438) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2016
It was a good, but a quite yeasty stout and I didn’t think much of it. Then I realised that it was well past its drink by date, which explains a lot. No taste of hops, some good dark malts, a bit of alcohol, but too much yeast.

Аромат после отстоя пены. Кофе, карамел& Приемле& но плотнос& для "темног&# эля" мало.

3.8
bergstaden (3154) - Røros, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2016
Olmost black with a light brownb head - Malt and fruity hop aroma - Malt body to support a good hoppy flavour that is fruity with good bitterness - the hops with bitterness goes into the finish - This was good
