Solid black with a thin white head. This drank mediciney and hard to swallow. One of the first beers I’ve had with a gag factor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught: Dark maroon in a full pint glass with the characteristic thin strip of head that tells me the bar keep wants me to have the most beer for my money. Malt dominating aroma that is stifled by the cold temperature of the beer, but blossoms some sweet caramel and a nice earthiness when warmed. Flavours are a bit too sweet for me, but turn slightly spicey (burnt peat?). Not bad.
