3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Darkest, headless ruby brown and little else to it. Nose is a lot less heavy going than a year ago, Wink of creamy whisky. Initial taste is silky and full of berry, Earthy and lightly woody. Wholesomeness of the tayberries stands firm throughout, most Bashah like, with an underswept sweetness from the rest. There’s little bitterness or yeasty or malt here. It’s shapely and fruity and a hall of ageing fruitiness that will hold up for a while longer. Tinselly rich tartness, stoney fruitiness and a comforting barrell burn. Mouthfeel is surpsingly light and overly cooperative to the fruitiness, but doesn’t catch on the ABV. Cruelly sweet and fading finish, squeaky berry linger.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Black with olmost no head, no carbonation - dark malt aroma with some hops - overly sweet malt body with some alcohol sting, very small hint of hops - sweet fruity finish with alcohol heat - This lacks bitterness, just a sweet alcoholoc mess , not a Black Ipa in my opinion
