Rather sweet and malty aroma and flavour, and as other beers from this pub/ brewery chain has had, a rather unpleasant finish

Tap. Pours reddish chestnut rather than black. Aroma has chocolate but something else that has kipper in it. Tastes sweet almost bubble gum. This is strongest n the finish. An interesting mild. Worth a second visit.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml Bottle from Lidl, Langley Moor, Durham.
Dark reddish brown with a large but loose and diminishing, frothy, tan head. Thereís dark malts and cocoa in an unassuming aroma. The taste is reasonably sweet and very rich with chocolate brownie, toffee and doughy flavours on a thick, smooth palate. Itís marred however by a plasticy, chemical aftertaste that means itís not one Iíll want to revisit.
