Cask, handpump at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, London 6th Jan 2012 Black in colour with a filmy head. This is an ’In yer face’ beer with loads of chocolate and citrus zapping around. Good thrusting bitterness with a nice drying finish, citrus showing well mainly grapefruit, drinks far too easily for the abv, Lovely, not quite as lovely as the ’Wild Boar’ but still a corking beer.

Absolutely delicious aroma with piney and fruity hops, moderate bitterness, mild roasted malt, liquorice and dryness.
