3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle. Pours pitch black and with a dense light brown head. Spiced and dark roasted aroma. Roasted malt and mild chocolate smoothness in the initial flavour. A set of wineous notes and spices appear before the finish, a citric/fruity note of elderberries too - but if I didn’t know from the label that it contains elberberries I wouldn’t have guessed/sensed it. The finish itself holds a solid bitterness with a liqourice note. Nice, but lacks some more powerful flavours to be more interesting, subtle flavours are plentiful yet too vague.

A pitch black beer with a fine brown head. The aroma is of sweet caramel. The flavor is sweet and roasted combined with spices and berries. More special than good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Churchkey, shared with staff and two guys from Northern Ireland. Light bodied ale with plenty of roasted malts in the aroma and flavor, along with toast and bitter chocolate. Excellent, complex brew for such a light body.
