BeardedAvenger (599) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Cask at Old Wheatsheaf, Frimley Green. Aroma of leather smeared with cheap chocolate. Cola black. Beige head fades to a crescent moon. Medium bitter. Sour, really sour. Berries and quinine. Previous beer had a sour edge so possibly the issue is the pub. Light bodied. Watery. Leaves a slick sensation around my teeth. Gets increasingly more astringent. Did not enjoy.

jjsint (2828) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Handpull cask at the Rock, Cambridge. Very dark brown. Certainly bordering on black. Liquorice, malt, soot and spruce in the aroma. Taste is malty but very chalky and sweet. Short to medium cloying finish. Oily body. Not great and not really a BIPA.

Finn (7039) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2016
Fra fat på Gog & Magog, Plymouth 22 Sep 16. Svart. Lavt mokkafarget, stabilt skum. Teppelacing. Aroma av plommer. Smaken lettrøstet malt - men også mye frukt. Tørr kaffe i avslutningen.

stevoj (4705) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Cask draft at the Three Magpies. A bit more porter than its American cousin, but I like it. Dark brown, but opaque. Small foamy beige head. Aroma is toast grains and chocolate. Taste also features the roast grains, and their bitterness blends well with hops to make for a nice bite. A bit tamer, but very enjoyable.

theprof (826) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Cask. Aroma roasted malts and spice. Pours dark mahogany with creamy tan head dissipating to broken lace. Taste has some chocolate malt and biscuit to the fore but it finishes hoppy and with a pleasant wash to the palate, although there is some strong herbal aftertaste For me a good example of a black IPA. And it explains why I prefer porter and stout.

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Black with an off white head. Earthy coffee with gritty dark chocolate. Hints of cola with dark berries. Creamy woodiness with medicinal notes. Nutty with light citrus pith bitterness. Easy drinking.

Rune (12071) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2016
Half pint, cask at JDW’s Gog and Magog. Crocheted lacing from a fawn-coloured head. A deep reddish tint to a ruby dark body. Roasted dark malty nose with a touch of chocolate. Blended taste of cocoa, caramel and dark fruits followed by a bittersweet tail. Medium bodied. Pretty nice (Plymouth 22.09.2016).
