3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Tilleys, Newcastle on 27 July 2013.
Poured black with a dense beige head. Aroma of burnt malt, but with acrid acidic notes. Roasted malt and coffee flavours, but mouth feel wasn’t as thick as I had hoped. Slight sour note of the palate, but mostly more coffee and bitter chocolate.
