2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from abbeydale beer stop. Black with no head. Aroma is liquorice and treacle and tar. Taste is a bit tart and bitter, and to be honest a bit unpleasant. Body is thick and oily, medium carbonation. I quite like blue monkey, but this is one of the worst impy stouts I’ve had, disappointing.
