AshtonMcCobb (5893) - 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.

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 (14656) - 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.

AROMA: bread, hay, spruce, APPEARANCE: black, minimal head, white foam, TASTE: light sourness, lightly bitter, medium body, thin feel, soft carbonation, OVERALL: uninspiring aroma; easy to drink, nothing really notable but a little spruce from American hops.

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head, medium. Average. Scent is medium IPA and light roasted malt. Taste is super dense nice IPA on the bitter side with mostly citrus side flavors. Finish is dry and a bit grassy. Great.

Martin243 (1063) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
500ml Bottle served in a pint sleeve. Mahogany brown with a tan head. fruity farmyard aroma definite cowpat in there. Liquorice imp flavour slightly ashy and medicinal. Thin body, not the best BIPA, and suffers from one of my personal Btes Noir - too gassy.

.25 pour from refrigerated bottle into wine glass. Black, opaque, super fluffy off-white. Sweet, bready, a hint of caramel. Light to medium body, dry. Lightly bitter, bready,
