AshtonMcCobb (6470) - Edinburgh, - NOV 27, 2012
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours opaque black with a toffee colour round the edge and a nice head. The nose is charcoal, liquorice and general dry stout characteristics. The taste by contrast is grapefruit, pine and a lemon finish. The palate has a medium body, a zingy texture and a refreshing finish. Overall, this is confusing as it smells like a dry stout and tastes like an IPA. Its good but I was told that the cask version was better. I think this probably needed a bit more late hopping.

33 cL Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has chocolate, caramel, some fruitiness and hops. Taste has a bit of roast, chocolate, a rather weak fruitiness and a medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Lacking some fruitiness for a black IPA.

Davros IX (302) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home - It was a nice dark beer, but not one that I would classify as a black IPA. Lots of dark malt and a great flavour, but light on the hops. More like a Hobgoblin or an Old Peculiar. Very nice though!

Graham77 (514) - SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2017
500ml bottle. The aroma is liquorice and some resiny and citrusy hops. The taste is well balanced, refreshing and a good example of a beer style I like. The hops are prominent but not overpowering. Thin head with very little carbonation. Tasty.

Christos (5550) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2017
(Stewart Black IPA) Bottle 330ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5% Brown coloured body, tall but thin beige head on top, with low retention. Aroma of chocolate, light coffee, citrus, grapefruit. Taste is nicely bitter with good hop presence, plenty of citrus and grapefruit, just a bit of chocolate and roasted character. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Quite good.

bierkoning (13132) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle. Almost black. Soft roast, citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma. Malty sweet, soft roasty, soft tart flavor with citrus. Smooth, fruity. Low on carbon. Well balanced.

Benzai (15321) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle @ home. Brown to dark brown color with a slight red glare coming through when held into the light, medium sized beige to light brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is quite faint. Taste malts, toasted malts, quite nicely hoppy, moderately hop bitter, lightly bitter. Average to decent body and carbonation.
