Very dark brown with bubbly tan head. Some citrus and pine on the aroma but fairly subdued. Flavour full of mango skin and lime pith, its pretty astringent actually. A touch of chocolate in there underneath it all.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Luvians, St Andrews. A black beer with a fair, light tan head. Aroma is lovely with passion fruit and grapefruit hop characters, presumably Nelson Sauvin. Juicy passion fruit and pineapple hop flavours give way to coffee, roasty malt, burnt toast and chocolate. The flavours are intense but this is a seriously drinkable beer. I would love to try this on cask. Brilliant stuff!
