3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. More reddish brown than black. A big golden head forms in the glass. Aroma is well balanced between the roasted and chocolatey malts and the hops, but it feels muted. Tastes OK, with some liquorice and blackcurrant elements floating around, but quite indistinct and not very exciting. Ends with mild bitterness. Decent effort, but fell short of my expectations.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black, keeps its head really well. Burnt malt on the tongue gives way to a big hit of bitter hops in the finish, with a hint of chocolate. Had in Euston Tap, unfortunately had to rush it down a bit before catching a train, instead of savouring it. Great beer.
