3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5%ABV. Black lager.
Tapped out black. 40şSRM.
Nose has some nice smoke, smoked oats, charcoal, ripe stone fruit.
Mouthfeel is watery. There is a sour palate welcome. This then slides into stout flavors of black bread (though very very light), leaning more towards charcoal, the slightly burnt edge of a thin crust pizza.
Finish is clean and quiet.

Hazy dark red - brown beer, small cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Tangy dark malts, touch of roast. Tangy unsweet dark chocolate. Pruney dark fruits. Smooth finish. Tangy malt linger. Not bad but a bit Porter like.

(Bottle) Clear black with ruby hints and thin small loose tan head. Nice aroma of roast malt, toast and coffee notes. Light body, moderate carbonation. Taste is dark treacle, although not particularly sweet. A little on the thin watery side. Some nice smokey toasty notes in the end. Easy drinking and unusual if a little understated.
