3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Balcony, Lourdas. Reflective glossy tar pour like a black mirror. Tint of brown against the midday sun. A very black beer generously collared with tan. Nose sweet heady molasses, iron, blackcurrant, liquorice and sticky dried fruit, as well as the expected espresso and bitter cocoa attack. Markedly roastier and more impressively bitter than the nitrogenated, widgetised, super-chilled stuff back home. Sticks around with some serious burnt toast and black coffee bitterness long after the swallow. Fudgy creaminess, high cocoa dark choc, even an occasional waft of xmas pudding. Light and refreshing in the heat, but hinting at the presence of a darker, stronger beer. Original and Foreign Extra tipped together. Tastes like Guinness did to me when I was 14. Bitter enough to make girls and the unenlightened wince. Hats off.
