3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask in the Wildeman. Poured deep black with very little head. Aroma of very dark chocolate and some roast malt. Quite weak bodied, but the flavour of chocolate, coffee and roast malt with a hint of liquorice more than compensate.
