3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. This is a great example of a black lager. Dark in appearance with an off white head. Smells of cocoa powder and coffee. Mouth feel is thin but not watery. Taste is of bitter hops and malt - none of that overly sweet flavour you get with macros and also not too carbonated. A very sessionable and enjoyable beer.

Some roasted malts, caramel, bread, decent hops. Makes good play between roasted bitterness and hop bitterness, but finishes, bit too thin for me. Decent, but one time try

Dark caramel aroma, pretty dry. Not my type. Preferred it to be sweeter. Low character alert

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from the tap the 11/09/2014. Brown to black colour with a medium tan and foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is well balanced between the bitternes of the coffee with the sweet. Aftertaste is dry and bitter with the presence of the coffee on the mouth. Medium body with a good carbonation. Really enjoyable beer. Next one please!
