Dark brown. Toasty nose with dark sugars and a little bit of grapefruity hop. Mouthfeel is a bit slick. Taste is a little dark malt sweetness, a little bit of hop fruitiness. Fairly light example, fits with the English context but is less effective overall than the bigger interpretations of the concept. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2013

Woh, such a an English aroma. Nice porter roast, but some vorpalberries too. Nice burnt roast in the retronasals. Palate pleasantly slithy. Nice spicy roasty combo. Good balance, high drinkability. Finish later fills out with a whole range of roasts and spices.
Cask conditioned at Moreton in Marsh Beer Fest ’12. Very dark brown with cream head. The initial flavours are of rich roasty dry malts, some liquorice, some husky coffee hints then zinging in from left field comes the hops, twangy tangerine, spruce needles, loganberry, challenging the malts to a fight. An absolute belter in my book and worthy of a high mark from me. jmgreenuk (9452) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 20, 2013
Cask at the Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a bubbly light tan head. The aroma is rich malt and liqourice. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a liqourice, treacle, citrus fruit, spicy hop palate. A black IPA? I guess it’s getting there but it’s very much an Anglicised version.

(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Dark brown colour, almost black, with foamy beige head. Roasted, malty nose with coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and pine needles. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, dark fruit, dark rye bread and a generous piney bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Very nice.
