Brewchap Smell the Glove (6.2%)

A black IPA with a label printed black on black in honour of Spinal Tap, this is yet another example of how good home brewing can be.
Especially if the home brewer is Our Ian.
Pouring fathoms deep with a thick cushion of a head, the beer smells of chocolate and singed honeycomb.
The malting heaves with coffee and treacle tart, dark butter chocolate, runny honey and toffee, while there’s a good slap to the cheeks from the bitter yet sticky, crunchy leaf litter of the hops.
You find maple syrup and orange marmalade alongside nettles and pithy bracken.
And in the finish a succulent brown sugar glaze adds a warm sweetness to the otherwise sharp kick of hops.
