COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blind Spot - Dark Specialty Ale: Blind Spot is ideal for the colder months, but perfectly enjoyable any time of the year. Fermented with a traditional English yeast. Wonderfully robust, full-bodied with a rich and warming finish. We have added a light dosing of dried ginger, cardamon, grain of paradise and star anise to the whirpool for some enjoyable spicing.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2013
Medium beige head. Opaque black body goes deep dark red at edges. Earthy chocolatey lavender aroma with cough drops notes. Dry, and faintly acidic, spicy chocolatey taste with lavender notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry-acidic chocolatey lavender aftertaste with earthy vinegary notes. It’s not bad, but the acidity spoils it. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

29-JUN-2013, bottle @Yespr tasting. Clear, dark brown with red hue and lasting tan head. Spicy aroma. Taste is spice as well. That spice is somewhat tequila-like. Toast, malt, fruit, but too much spice for me. Medium body, soft carbonation.
