On tap at the brewery. Grappa heat in espresso, shiny chocolate crack aroma. More of that all in the taste. There’s a herbal spur in the side of the massively smooth malty flank. You know how I said Magic Rock ought to take Dark Arts and stitch a bigger pair of bollocks onto it? That’s what they’ve gone and done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grand Marnier nose, pours black with a firm beige head, taste of chocolate and orange peel. Too heavy liquor taste, more of a praline filling than a beer...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Complex nose of roast, meal damp stone and sweetness. Thick body, molasses,deep and instense and good but lacks that complexity you might expect from a great beer. Silky in the body but head is not sustained.Pleasing mouthful but in the end there is just too much liquorice in there for me.
