330ml bottle in Harrild & Sons, London (5.50):
This one was a really excellent black IPA, quite possibly one of the best that Ive tried of the style to date (Im not 100% sure but it is certainly up there anyway). Juicy, flavoursome & really refreshing to drink, this one was an excellent tasting beer that went down in no time at all. After finishing the majority of the bottle I realised the beer had been bottles just over one year ago but this definitely didnt seem to have a negative impact on the taste, the beer was superb & its one Ill be hoping to pick up again now.

burgundydrinker (7) - - JUN 4, 2015 does not count
33cl dans une tulipe Duvel. Robe noir fonc avec des reflets rouges et un bon col de mousse beige bien are. Un arme rsineux et citronn, fruit (mre, cassis). En bouche on peroit tout de suite le houblon avec une touche herbeuse et rafraichissante, peut tre du raisin rouge, puis un final torrfi avec du caramel et des notes de caf. Belle amertume durable, mais pas envahissante. Une trs bonne bire, dont on ne se lasse pas, riche et rafraichissante. Je prend toujours soin den avoir une ou deux sous le coude!
