Croucher PATRIOT is an American Black Ale. It is black in colour but without the dark flavours usually associated with black beers like Porters or Stouts. It is chock full of American Amarillo and Simcoe hops. Very hoppy on the nose, with a delicious fruity flavour, with guava and passionfruit present.

Bottle. Extremely dark maroon color, large fluffy beige head with good retention. Aroma of peppery pine boughs on a background of long black. Taste is bright pine with roasted coffee grounds and bitter cocoa. Exactly what a black IPA ought to be. Delicious.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours brown with an orange hue and a beige head. A little citrusy hops in the nose on a bed of sweet roast. Medium body, sweet roast, licorice and quite a solid aromatic hop profile. Ends quite bitter. Very well made. 200312

Theydon_Bois (20922) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle, big thanks to Wingmanwillis and his brother, split on the train to Windsor 17/03/15.
Black with a decent tan cover that retains well.
Nose is light charr, pine, red berry fruit, raisens, spice, light cocoa, liquorice.
Taste is a little thinner than the aroma with pine needle, bitter tropicana, earthy hop, roasted tones, red berry tang.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Respectable enough CDA.

mcberko (19186) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2013
500mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, a little char, and some piney hops in the background - not as hoppy on the nose as many black IPAs out there. Flavour is similar, bringing out lots of roasted / toasted malt upfront, transitioning to dry piney hops on the finish. Not the hoppiest or full-bodied of black IPAs, but pleasant enough flavours and kind of a thin palate. Good stuff, but leaves a little to be desired.

Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
American black ipa. Med brown, med head, toasty, grapefruity, minty, chocolatey -fun stuff. Taste is toasty and woody, w light mint and herbal hop.
