I Think that there is a melange of things going on all of which add up to a sum of less than the parts.

Ferris (14802) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2017
Can - Fresh hoppy and dark roast. Jet brown with a rich light brown head. Hoppy and a nice roasty note. Not quite a black IPA, but something different and good.

Can from Redmonds. Love this stuff. Aroma is coffee and hops, lively fizz in the mouth - a lovely middle ground between a porter and a black IPA, for me. Its got a sharp kick to it. Very impressed.

Davros IX (302) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home from M&S - This was definitely a porter IPA and I am not sure if I particularly liked it. The porter flavour overwhelmed the hops and I didnt think it was particularly great.
