COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Black IPA fuses speciality malts with a tropical punch bowl of new world hops to deliver a contradictory yet cultured concoction. A classically ‘pale’ aroma and quenchingly fruity palate belies a broodingly dark and deceptive appearance. Can a beer be both ‘black and pale’? Time to consult the Magic 8 Ball.

BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2012
From bottle. Pours as good as black with bubbly tan head. Wowee the smell is tidy, lots of grapefruit (Nelson?) and mango, some resinous aroma also. Similar taste, little malt on the finish. Well bittered. The hops really dominate. It’s..........Delicious!

Fat @ Ölrepubliken. Helt svart öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter av lakrits, kaffe och grapefrukt. Smakinslag av rostad malt, kaffe, lakrits och grapefrukt. En lätt ton av alkohol stör något i smaken. Oljig munkänsla.

Keg at Cask pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A black coloured pour with a very thin tan head on top. Hoppy, malty aroma. Tastes malty, hoppy, chocolate, distinct grapefruit taste in the background, slight bitterness. Rich and complex. Another quality brew from the excellent Magic Rock.

Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Black pour with a beige head. Sweetcorn, blackcurrant and blackberry nose. Nice. Dark fruit flavour with a hint of malt and caramel. Quite a smooth character. Long bitter-sweet finish.

NikkTwist (3191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2017 Draft at Khyber Pass. Very dark brown pour that starts with a thick khaki head. Nice lace. Odd mix of pale and burnt malts. Some spicy bitterness but not particularly hoppy. Charred grapefruit. Pumpernickel. Blackcurrant. Treacle. Cola. Peat. Black liquorice. Marmite. Interesting but not sure it completely works.

Davros (3132) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours dark brown with a large, lasting head. Nose shows soft roasted and toasty malt along with a bready character and spicy, piny and fruity hops. Similar flavours, with more roasted malt and caramel followed by a massive resinous and piny hop hit.
