3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. Very dark, chestnut brown. Big, bubbly, tan head. Drank this quite cold as I thought it was a BIPA. Not that it mattered, because like other Hardknott beers I’ve had, this is a bit bonkers. Blackcurrant liquorice sweets. Shoe polish (?). Raisins. Taste is dry. Light bitterness. Light, black peppery spiciness. Bit overly carbonated. Dry, light, bitter finish. Very decent. Certainly different.
