How unusual - a Black IPA! No surprise that it is black as coal and resembles Guinness, but with a thinner more bubbly head. It smells very malty and fruity.
The taste has a slight smokiness to it with a slightly sweet toffee aftertaste. It is quite bubbly like an IPA but my brain expected smooth like a Guinness. It is really unusual as you can see a pint of stout but taste a pint of burnt toffee fizzy IPA.
Quite strong at 5.7% ABV, it slips down a little too easily and is well worth trying for those people looking for something a little different to a regular IPA.
