Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a deep black, finger of tan head that quickly dies. Aroma is classic black IPA, with a brilliant mango note and passion fruit. Taste is very bitter, hoppy and very nicely ashy. Resiny note just kicks at the end. Coffee finish.Particularly good for me, because Im not a big black IPA fan.

A dark ipa? An oxymoron if ever there was one.
A dark pitch black beer with a golden brown head. Feint fruity aroma and a deep hoppy flavour. A roasted coffee aftertaste from the dark malts makes this a really mind bogglingly interesting drink.

Bottle. Purple-tan medium head. Jet black body. Massive whiff of grapefruit and passionfruit. Some smokiness. Good amount of lasting bitterness which leads to a dry finish. Decent amount of body. SaintMatty (7362) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2012
