imdownthepub (13688) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Cask conditioned at Stratford upon Avon Beer Festival 15. Black with cream head. There is a deep, dark roasted, full palate to the malts, charcoal hints with crispy toast then a strong, bittering chocolate note. Amongst all of this malty stuff going on there is a leafy, grassy, bittering hop character. Loads going on but not really that confusing. I liked this a lot and my beer of this Festival.

330ml ; oh Jesus what a superb name for a beer ..I would not call this beer a faith experience ,it is pretty mild in spiritual transcendence . But yes friends and alcoholics , JESUS is back and black ... this beer is a textbook black ipa . Nice faith redemption in the roasted finish. I wanna get down on my knees and start pleasing Jesus .

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours pitch black with a tan head. Hop smack aroma, smooth mouthfeel. Some smoke, hint of caramel. So much going on with this. Bloody marvellous but I did somewhat over do it, it aint a session ale at 6.5%....
