Thick black pour with a thin tan head. Lovely slick oily mouthfeel, with big treacle, brown sugar, burnt flavours. Hint of liquorice and stewed fruits. This is just what I like in a beer, really good.

Pours deep sable with a thick and persistent tan head. Aroma is not strong, but presents promising toasty malt, fruity and woody notes. Flavor delivers more than what the aroma promises - molasses, roast malt, slightly charred hops, hints of pear and licorice. And a sneaky alcohol bite. Mouthfeel features firm, viscous body and good fizz. No lil’ beer, a worthy one.

This beer has a silky black pour with a thin brown head. The aroma is of molasses, pretty spot on. Brown sugar. The flavor is potent. Lots of alcohol, initial burn. The body is sweet, some caramel, brown sugar, molasses. It has that molasses strong flavor. Interesting. Good.

A great way to spend a New Year’s Eve Day, potent to it’s core, Lil’ B is hardly little and punches above it’s weight. Boozy blasts of rummy fruitcake, chocolate and espresso, smoke and cigar roll off of this headless skull-shaker. The body is absolutely fantastic, syrupy yet not saccharine, allowing the flavours to meld and stretch out upon the tongue. A fine black brew for a wintry day.

Pours jet black with a nice tan head. Super toasty nose. chocolate cake, bitter chocolate, slight hint of booze. Burnt malt, roast malt, smoked malt...so much malt. As it warms some cocoa come through, strong bitter chocolate finish. Thick mouthfeel. Would mark it a lil b(it) higher if it wasn’t as bitter as it is, but its still a really nice beer.
