3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Very dark red/copper in colour with a small, quickly dissapating head. Aroma is dominated by liquorice and dried fruits. Taste is light to medium sweetness, but a peppery dry bitterness dominates and remains in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, with very little carbonation.

Bottle. Fine, beige head. This is an ebony, black coffee to amber colored ale. Syrupy

Not the Laphroaig of ales, but a good Friday-beer. A drink for decadents, swine and warriors.
