3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity cask at the Elysian Winter Beer Festival 2015, Ely. Very very dark brown, or barely black. Smells of slate and burnt coffee. Sweeter taste than suggested by the aroma, rounding to a bittersweet finish reminiscent of liquorice and plums. The aftertaste is more bitter, white still retaining a fruity sweet note. Medium body. Intriguing and well-balanced.
