To be honest I’m getting a bit tired of black IPAs, but this one’s pretty good.
I’m also sure that the last time I had anything by Buxton it came in a 330ml bottle.
My old brain isn’t what it used to be, so I could be wrong.
Whatever, it’s nice to have a full (almost) pint of beer to drink.
The question everyone should be asking about black IPAs surely must be, “Isn’t this just a heavily hopped porter?”
You see you get a glass full of lots of portery things – Bags of liquorice, blackberry and redcurrants along with lovely cocoa.
All of that plus the most enormous kick in the pants by the hops.
Enormous, gigantic, palate scrapingly dry hops.
It’s a lovely beer, whatever it is.
