2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. pours jet black. extremely thick oily pour. my bottle was flat as a pancake. no head. i see others had a reasonable head so i’d like this again with some carbonation. but it was good nonetheless. aroma is of coffee, molasses and burnt toast. taste is hampered somewhat by the lack of carbonation. i think it just tastes...off... extremely bitter, sour after taste. the texture is so thick! nice coffee notes and bitter chocolate. i want this again.

Gravity at Battersea Beer Festival, pours a deep black-brown with a fast-settling head, cocoa and Bisto nose, dry umami palate with cocoa and coffee hints and a bitter overtone. A little shallow for the strength?

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe, shared at home. Pours jet black with a thin tan head, nice lacing. Lots of chocolate and coffee on the aroma. Taste has a good bitterness too. Creamy and rich, full-bodied. Liqourice coming through at the end. Very nice.

500ml shared between three, bottle conditioned.
12th Oct 2013, in a friends house, Salisbury, after a few beers down town.
Very dark, OK, it’s black. Tan head on each little tumbler.
Coffee and dark chocolate notes in the aroma and taste, the slightly over roasted malts doing a good job: the hop content ensuring there is a dry finish and mild bitter undertone throughout.
Good smooth feel to the body and a lovely night cap after a long day of sport, sight-seeing and drinking.

Jan 2013 - draught. Sweet smokey and intense. Good body. Hides alcohol quite well and is not too sharp despite the 9%. It’s an OK sipping beer and a good beer of its type but I found this one quite sickly.

Half pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Black with a bubbly head. Nice light chocolate aroma. Strong roasty taste, with plenty of chocolate and little alcohol burn. A good effort.

i found this rather overbearing, not unpleasant, but not particularly easy to drink. rather thin and cloying. lots of coffee.

(Gravity cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 23 Nov 2012) Black colour with brief head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate and cacao. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, black coffee, hints of liquorice and a generous cacao bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. Well rounded, tasty and excellently balanced. Lovely beer.
