The golden Bohemian skies turned black. The cool floral breeze spiked into a whirl of burning bitter fruits. Everything changed. A beautiful dance between darkness and light. Brutal and elegant. Thunder and shooting stars. It was Friday the 13th. Black Friday.

Draught at The Brewery Bar, Camden Town Brewery on 19-Aug-2015. Black in colour with a thick tan coloured head. Medium body and carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate and pine. Lots if flavour - dark fruits, toasted malt, caramel, cocoa and hops. A nice bittersweet finish. Nice fresh and flavourful ale.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Keg at the brewery. It pours hazy deep brown with a thick tan head. The nose is earthy, rich roasts, toasted nuts, umami, dark chocolate and Rocky Road. The taste is smooth, bitter, earthy roast, coffee grounds, peppercorn, umami, salted liquorice, cocoa and some acidity with a dry, roast finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Good balance of flavours. A solid schwarz. Perhaps a bit dry, but enjoyable nonetheless.

imdownthepub (11947) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Keg at The White Hart, Crystal Palace, London. Dark brown with cream head. Quite a sweetish, malty beer, there is a vegetable hint alongside a plummy fruitiness. Not a great deal of palate but enough. Reasonable.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
On tap at The Brewery. Very dark brown beer. Lasting beige head. Hoppy dark lager. Hops jump out of the glass at you. Then some chocolate malt then more hops. Fresh tasty and lovely. Excellent.

jjsint (1658) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Keg at Black Heart, Camden. Very dark brown, almost opaque. A little bit of brownish head and lacing. Light aroma of grain, cola, liquorice, grape juice... it’s pleasant but hard to get my head around. Sweet candied taste, turning only slightly more bitter in the finish. Clean light body. This is a hard style to pull off, but I’ve enjoyed this.
