4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled Beerdock Crewe. Lovely fresh pine aroma with smoky roast notes. Great bitter palate, which translates to a long, tangy finish. Packed with flavour and body and a really impressive low abv beer. Black IPA or stout? Who cares!?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light chocolatey aroma with a slight spice or earthy backbone, smells very black IPA like. Deep brown / black with a latte head. Flavour is spicy with rustic grain hints and a bit of citrus with a significant bitterness to follow. Kind of like fruity, bitter, dirt. Nice and light for something so dark. I think black IPA style is definitely a good way to go for low abv beers.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a brown, lively head. Aroma is weak and consists of nuts and roast coffee. Taste is weak roast coffee, mango and orange fruitiness and medium bitter hop finish. Medium bodied with slightly watery nuances but for this ABV its hard to complain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. For a 2% beer, this is insanely good. Comes across quite citrus driven with a mild sweetness behind a lightly roasted body. An absolute quaffer as you’d expect for a 2% beer but the amount of flavour bursting out of this is incredible. Well done

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with a beige head.
Aroma has herbs, grass and citrus.
Taste is dry chocolatey and roasted.
Thin body, soft carbonation.
Short dry after taste.
Unusal aroma for a stout but then again, it’s a Unstout.
