500ml bottle - Okay, to start this looks dreadful. It looks like a murky pint of flat Pepsi, black and lifeless. The aroma picks things up a bit, a decent smokiness, black roasted coffee, roasted malts. The first sip is thin, a little of the smoke and coffee come through, but it seems a bit... dull. Second attempt, I’m getting a bit of a finish, nothing unpleasant, just like a cheap bar of dark chocolate. I was hoping for better, but sadly you can’t have everything.
