On tap at Craft & Draft. Pours a very dark brown, with a very tall head with good retention. Tons of resinous hops in the nose, together with milk chocolate, roasted malts and cocoa. Hop bitter taste, with notes of resin mixed with dark chocolate, ice coffee and a tiny bit of sourness.

A: Black with a chunky beige head.
S: Piney.
T: Piney but porter like, with a slight fudge quality at the back. Also some hoppy earthiness. Some of that classic American hoppy marmalade.
O: It's a hoppy American porter/black ale, or whatever you want to call it, and a quality one at that. I need to check out more from this brewery.

Really dark color with light brown head. Aroma is really fresh and hoppy. Smells like a standard IPA, not a black one. In the taste you get a slight roastiness but only on the finish and aftertaste. Hops are fresh and grassy. Body is soft, balanced out by a crisp carbonation. Really well made and easy to drink.

330 ml bottle Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Pours dark black with a large foamy tan head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Smell - citrus, grapefruit. Taste - roast malts, black juicy fruits with a dry bitter finish. Lovely brew to just sip and take in the balance between hops and malts. One of the best black pale ales I have tasted. Tragic if this is no longer being brewed.
