sonotono (266) - torino, ITALY - SEP 16, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 Schiuma marroncina molto abbondante, colore nero con riflessi rossi. Profumo molto intenso, buonissimo, di frutta tropicale, agrumato, erbaceo. Sapore tostato, dolce di malto appena percepibile prima dellavvento del grande amaro, agrumato, lunghissimo nel finale, anche tostato. In bocca oleosa, facile da bere nonostante la gradazione e lintensit dei sapori. Somiglia molto alla Black Hop Sun della Granda. Una bomba.

Joli noir crmeux ... Nez trs expressif. Attaque acide & amre. Bel quilibre gnral. Cest rarement mauvais chez Buxton. Une vraie belle russite daccord entre les armes torrfis et la fracheur du houblon. Une bire accueillante, pas prtentieuse, qui nen fait pas des tonnes dans des prix acceptable. Vraiment bien donc.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 2, 2015
Black, not totally opaque, thick creamy head. Very fruity hops, roasted aromas are very subtle, strong malts. Tastes almost like a pale fruity IPA, with a bitter kick that is just rightly dosed. Good IPA.

Een mooi zwart bier. De geur is overweldigend: hoppig, bloemig, zoetig, fruitig. De smaak is heerlijk: hoppig, bloemig, gebrande mout, caramel, fruitig. De nasmaak blijft heel lang hangen. Een heerlijke black IPA.

Bottle at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Blackcurrant, bitter fruit and raisin aroma. Passion fruit, blackberry and roast malt flavours leading to a bitter fruit finish. Nice.

Desverger (10512) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle at The Hare and Billet, Blackheath, London - black coloured pour with a big puffy beige head. Aroma and taste is a mix of roasted malts and tropical fruits, some citrus, prominent hoppy, grapefruit, pine needles, some caramel, cocoa, roasted hoppy finish. Lovely.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle from my summer Secret Santa. Aromas are pine, citrus, and slightly burnt wood. Tastes a little sweet at first. Light chocolate, caramel and citrus juice get overpowered by pine and deep roast. Dryish finish. High carbonation. Solid black IPA.
