3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Keg at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 20 July 2011) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Roasted, malty taste with chocolate, coffee, dark bread and ryvita. Roasted, malty taste with notes of chocolate, dark bread, gentle coffee hints and a mild, roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body, dry. Nice but lacking something extra (would probably gain from not being served ice cold).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg at The Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Black with fizzed head. Some treacle notes, quite heavy and a fruity, plum like flavour in amongst a wet cardboard note. It’s ok if you like that sort of thing, but I found it a little dull.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
[500ml bottle, Waitrose, Edinburgh] Very dark reddish brown, almost black pour with a thin off-white head. Lovely nose of roasted chocolate malts and coffee with a musty yeastiness. The roasted theme continues on the tasting, primarily coffee, but there are some fruity hops in there as well. Good stuff, tends to be a bit on the thin side as the abv is pretty low, but that can be forgiven

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Dark-brown/black in colour - generally opaque but some glints of light around the edges. It has a thick creamy head! On the nose there is sweet malt and a hint of coffee. The taste has much more coffee and some miilk chocolate. The palate is a little more than medium-bodied, the texture is very creamy and the end is quite elegant - no alcohol burn, just a gentle clean finish. The overall impression is of a very enjoyable beer, rich but restrained.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black with a persistent off-white head. Big, ballsy chocolate and charred coffee beans. Smooth medium body, bitter finish. Watered-down Guinness on steroids. And that isn’t meant to be an insult.
