3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25th March 2009
Opaque black beer. Low carbonation. Initially the roasty malt comes across as very strong but then after that shock has subsideed there is a strange sour fruit and herbal malt taste. Finishes on a sweet aniseed alcohol note. Palate is soft and a little oily. Unique beer that rewards persistence.
