3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle. A blurry kinda dark amber almost brown looking one in the glass and it has a medium sized first bubbly then more creamy and lacing (which by the way looks like tiger strips) light beige top. On the nose it gives away sweet malty toffee sweetness with a fudge like present. Also there are traces of yeast and dried dark fruits. It actually smells fairly nice this. It has a mild oily mouthfeel and the carbonation is soft and gentle. Tastes much the same as it smells. It’s malty and caramel sweet, a little bit of wet rocks and yeasty nuts. A little peppery arugula like sting in the finish and aftertaste makes it even more interesting. A little bit of alcohol is also present here. Got way more than I was expecting. 13.11.2013

Pours cloudy copper with very little head. Nose is rich and sweet caramel, raisins and plums. Flavour not as good as the nose but still very sweet.

Bottled, special Inveralmond Brewery was founded in 1997, but its young brewers are already rated among the best in Scotland. Blackfriar is the first in a series of beers honoring the role of the familiar orders of Dominican monks in the history of Perth. It is, naturally, a dark brew, hardy and warming, with a slightly sweet malty character balanced by a nice hoppiness. (Okay, it’s actually more of a deep burnt sienna than black, but "Deepburntsiennafriar” just didn’t have the same ring.) Blackfriar is loosely described as a ’wee heavy,’ but its assertive hoppiness will quickly dispel that notion. It may not fit in any classification, but Brother Daniel declares it an ’instant classic,’ and we think you’ll agree. malt: pale, crystal, chocolate, wheat hops: pilgrim, cascade, fuggles OG: 1066 EBC: 45

0.5l bottle from vinmonopolet. Dark bronze colour with beige head. Not a lot going on in the aromas, but some malt and fudge, and a wee bit of hops. On the palate I find malt, raisins, fudge and apples. Some ash in the finish. A bit boring.
