2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a very deep brown, perhaps its black, with a thin tan head. Aroma doesnít really jump out at you. I get toffee, a little coffee, a little bit of licorice, and raisin. The taste at first impression really has a metallic quality to it. Moving on, it has a roasted maltiness overall, bready, mild toffee, and slight qualities of licorice. Aftertaste is very bready. Light in body, with a very thin texture, and lacking in carbonation. I am not a fan of this one.

Bottle. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a beige head, some retention. Aroma is fairly mild but mostly as expected - some chocolate and dark fruits, not particularly roasty, a little creamy. Taste is light-bodied but balanced, some chocolate and slight roasty notes, hints of dark fruit, very easy-drinking.

50 cl bottle. Pours black with thin, short-lasting, no-lacing brown head. Aroma is low: licorice, blackberry, coca-cola, coffee. Mouthfeel is soft, fizzy, watery. Slightly bitter finish with a somewhat sweet aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell is very weak of coffee and chocolate. Pours a dark brown with a small head that lasts almost to the end. Tastes somewhere between Guinness and a dark beer. Similar to Hop City 8th Sin, only with less flavour. A little on the flat side. No aftertaste. Overall I was glad to try this and will try again. Looking forward to finding it on cask.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown head, some lacing.
Aroma is rather weak, some dried fruit, caramel, some herbal/spicy/fruity hop character and a hint of coffee.
Taste is minerally, slight roasty sourness, light bitter finish.
Very smooth on the palate, highly drinkable.
Overal smooth and drinkable, but nothing outstanding.
