4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a black pint with a thin white head
Nice to hold in the mouth till swallowed then leaving a strong after taste for some time after
But before you swallow take it to the back of the tong and drive it past both sides of the tong
One to get again

On cask. Pours jet black with a thick dark tan head. Chocolates and malty goodness coming from the scent. Licorice, chocolate, blackberry, treacle, a slight alcohol kick. After the sweetness comes the bitter. Makes the finish last long and memorable. Cracker.

Aromas of candy, toffee, some liquorice. Flavours of roasted malts, burnt caramel, some sweetness and herbal hop too. Perhaps a little too acrid, but a pleasing stout all round.
