3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Beer Craft Co., Holborn. Aroma has roasted malts, some coffee and beans. Pour black with a medium brown head. Taste is a real let down. Bland but it has a roasti after taste. Palate is disappointingly thin. Overall it smells and looks inviting but has a poor delivery.

Deep malty aroma. Pours really well. Thick and rich. Good blackest black colour. A little syrupy and lingers on the tongue.
