Looks and smells delicious! Hops are spot on. Slightly chewy. Nice lacing and legs. BOSH!!

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 bottle Coppers Ncl. Hops pine and chocolate perfectly combined. Creamy bitter palate with a lovely long dry finish. The pine and spruce lingers long in the aftertaste. Really excellent. *Rerate, 10/10/14. Bottle with a BBE 02.04.14. Even richer and more vineous, loads of body, the hop hot is still as fresh. Truly stunning.

330ml bought @ the brewery for under 3 quid and poured into a pint glass. Pours black as a crow on a cloudy night with a finger of dark tan head that lasts. Smells like you’d think with that beauty burnt coffee and dark chocolate smell but with a bit of resiny hop peeking through as well. Tastes like a pretty near perfect version (for my taste) of a black IPA. Lots of coffee, a wee bit of choc to keep it from the too dry side and, rare indeed, the perfect amount of sticky/piney hop to hold it’s own handily against all that darkness. Perfect balance between burnt/sweet/bitter. Not over heavy on the palate for such a flavourful beer. Could easily go another one (or more if I’d not only bought 2). Totally worth the hype. Had a few black IPA in my day and really only saw them as a change of pace but this one is gonna go in my regular rotation.
