Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Dark brown. Thick head. Citrusy, woody hop and light chocolatey malt. Sweet palate with milk chocolate and honeyish hop syrup notes. I’d say not enough bitterness to reign in the sweetness.

anders37 (27635) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2013
Draft @ Craft Beer Co, Islington N1. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty weak piney hoppy licorice aroma. Roasted malty hoppy caramel flavor. Has a roasted malty hoppy bitter finish.

McNeillR (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Darkest red, a glint away from being brown body. Decent dissapating beige head. Firm Bisto infused yeasty nose. Softly full flavoured initial taste, stabs of passion fruit meaty wine sauce middle. Towering carbonation and oily.mouthfeel. Finish slightly bittered, linger slightly nutty. Really tidy.

Keg, Marble Arch

Garrold (5844) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Tap at Sheffield Tap. Very dark, reddy brown. Thin but lasting off white head. Initial aroma is dark berry fruit which soon gives way to a roast coffee bean smokiness? Quite astringent, as you’d expect, then a long, bitter roasty finish.

DanielBrown (4567) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Keg at Birmingham Beer Bash. This was given the big build up and was worthy of it. Full of masculine flavour. It’s taken a few weeks to deal with the emotions of BBB, but I’m getting there now, and hence am clearing my BBB backlog. This was another (yet another) delicious UK keg beer which I loved at BBB. I loved BBB.

Simply awesome. Just remembered this beer fondly after drinking a massively overrated comparative beer style. Seriously, one of the best beers I’ve drank, I don’t know what more I could ask for in a beer.

3.3
TimE (6275) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2013
dark brown color. Pillowy off white head. The nose was almost non-existent. Not very impressive. Mouth is slightly astringent with roastiness and some hop character, but I felt the hops used held back the beer as they were sharp, aggressive enough. Overall a somewhat muddled Black IPA. Not in unenjoyable, but pales in comparison to many great black IPAs
