3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500ml 4.1%. Poured very dark brown (virtually black) with a small, off-white, frothy head which lasted well. Aroma was of roasted malts with toast, black coffee, toasted nuts, liquorice and light notes of raisins. Flavor was a light earthy bitterness with roasted malts, sweet milk chocolate, light lactic/sour milk notes, a touch of caramel and a dry toasty/nutty finish. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, watery texture and a good length finish.

Absolutely black with an ugly covering of greyish head. There are aromas of stale caramels, dodgy chocolates and maybe a hint of cola nut. This is replicated in the flavour with a body that was surprisingly astringent. There was a lingering impression of boiled tar and disappointment.

Gorgeous dark colour with a cheeky chocolate aroma. Malty taste and a bit sharp. A bit fizzier than expected.
