3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500m . In a La Chouffee tulip. I have scrolled right past this beer many tims , but I got a psychic message that it might be a new tick as I yawned while in the shitty Morrisons section with no other newbies . A big coffee accent in the nose ,..earthy soil hops , licorice , dark chocolate bite .This nose has attitude , I like it ! This brew is a burnt purple/red liquid and with a large khaki cream head rests well in the tulip. the flavours suggest roasted malts , bitter and rich coffee expression , coffee , roasty licorice . . Notes of chewy dark toffee malts ,burnt butterscotch . Quit a cloying , syrupy palate through out . Rounded up with a nice kinda mellow dry conclusion !

A decent drink this, and 1.95 in my local pub. I think we have a new drink for my on match days. Slight caramel and chocolate in there but quite subtle. Pretty much black and pretty much tasty. Good work.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost totally black with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is roasty notes with coffee with hints of fruits. Taste is also coffee with roasted malt and alcohol leading to a sweetish roasty finish with light hop notes. Not bad.
