Majek (740) - Ząbki, - MAR 16, 2014
Black colour, big, but not stable beige head. Strong aroma of grapefruit and mango, typical for IPA. Some roasted malts appears only in taste. Nice balance of maltiness (dark chocolate) and bitterness (grapefruit and lemon zest). Soft carbonation. Over medium body. Very good black IPA.

vincentvega72 (460) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 Donkerzwart bier met crmekleurige schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Heerlijk aroma en smaken van drop, zoethout, citrus, appelsien, beetje koffie. Lekker volle romige smaak met een mooi zoet-bittertje op het eind. Lang leve Buxton.

Towey1989 (1997) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Keg at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A deep brown colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, milk chocolate, dark fruits, slight honeycomb, a little grapefruit and subtle burnt toast. Taste of toffee, toasted malts, some milk chocolate, grapefruit, slight orange, a hint of melon, a little dark fruits and subtle burnt toast. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A long, toasted malt bitterness in the finish with a syrupy fruit aftertaste. A complex BIPA with more flavours from the black side than the IPA side but overall, so well made and I enjoyed it. Dangerous too.

GreenCat (47) - SLOVENIA - OCT 23, 2016
0,5 l on tap at Sir Williams Pub. Pours dark brown with thick tan head. A lot going on in the nose, milk, chocolate, roasted malt, some molasses, plenty of tropical fruit and citrus, some pine and general fruity notes, pears and peaches. Taste is a nice balance of sweet and bitter on top of fruitiness mixed with roasty noes, coffee and chocolate. Slick palate, average carbonation and a nice long hoppy bitter finish. Nicely balanced and drinkable BIPA.

LesArgen (322) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2016
Theres a nice balance of alcohol, hops and malt at the beginning, with notes of grapefruit, pine, honey, toast and coffee, but the taste of burned toast gradually grows stronger and stronger until its the overwhelming aftertaste. Starts well, finishes a little too strong.
