Really drinkable and well balanced BIPA. Quite subdued compared to a lot of offerings, moderate in hoppiness, roastiness and bitterness. Really very good. Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2016

Dark red, bitter fruit aroma. Rich, fruity taste. Malty and tangy hop. Rich, apple-y aftertaste. Really good. Scopey (15687) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle at Leighton’s thanks to Dirty D. It pours darkest brown - black with a small beige head. The aroma is soft, pine needles, caramel, banana bread, stewed orange, peach and apricot. The taste is bitter, rich roast, umami, liquorice, charred wood ,cocoa, spice, raw alcohol, treacle and peach. Medium body and moderate , foamy carbonation. Nice elements to it, but it is a bit chewy and alcoholic. Not bad overall. zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Extremely dark brown, hazy in colour with pine, tropical fruit, orange marmalade and chocolate flavours with liquorice and more spicy chocolate, red fruit and sarsaparilla on the smooth, vanilla and oak finish. Excellent! Smithld1 (323) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle from utobeer. A good drop. More stout than black IPA I would suggest. Very raisiny. Aye, pretty good. teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 10, 2016
33cl bottle shared at Leighton’s May tasting. Many thanks to Daniel for this one. It pours a clean copper color with a sweet fruity sake note. Taste is also sweet and boozy with some savoury sake-like notes and marmalade. Medium bodied with OK carbonation. Overall, meh
