2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
31st March 2013
Tasting at ChrisO’s. Opaque oily looking black - brown beer. No head. Viscous palate. Sugary sweet dark malt and sweet dark fruits. So very very sweet. I like a sweet beer but this is a bit much. Oily finish.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Bottle from Global Wines, Bearwood. Super thick, viscous, leaves a smear on the glass. Sweet, tobacco flavour. Rum notes. Really enjoyed this. Totally weird, but unique and great. Expected to hate this, but loved it. (It should be noted that I sampled this neat).

weird. not even really sure why it’s on this site!
mixed with lemonade (1:5) to create a ’Sheffield Stout’
thick black oily liquid with an aroma of treacle and liqorice. kind of works with the lemonade, i understand it also goes with milk!

NOT a beer. A Malt Liquor. Mixed with anything you fancy, It is pretty damned good with Pernod and a splash of lemonade. (I know it sounds foul but...) 1/5 to 4/5 lemonade creates a pleasant and round summer drink. The original Rum and Black, not that evil Blackcurrant juice used today. Do NOT chill. I noticed other comments where folk had tried drinking it neat. NO! Bad! If you don’t know then ask! Silly lot!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
680ml bottle. Pours flat black with no head. Aroma is Marmite, treacle and roast. Taste is very sweet to start. Sweet, treacle finish. Thick and coats the mouth. A bizarre liquid.

Danish measure, 2007 ’vintage’. Yikes- thought this had coagulated and got chucked out by the missus years ago. It wasn’t on the site when purchased, but appears to have become rateable in the intervening 5 years. Black, leggy syrup staining the glass like iodine. Blind you could convince an aficionado it was port; aroma thick, rich, prune and Christmas pudding-sodden with a dunk of Marmite. Viscid and sticky beyond the thickest impy; deep, semi-dried black grape and malt loaf sweetness rendering it undrinkable neat in anything more than an eggcup. Mixer/cooking ingredient with a powerful concentration of malt and dark sugar flavour. The alcohol is unnoticeable. Perfect for browning onions for a venison ciabatta.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark dark black black colour with virtually no head. Lookes almost like engine oil. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, sweet sugar, soy sauce, sweet sweet dark fruit - licorice, syrup. Flavour is heavy sweet with a long long duration, sweet sugar, soya. Body is medium to full, texture is syrupy - almost like thick enigine oil, carbonation is flat.

I couldn’t drink a pint, but with rum, whisky or brandy added 50:50 it is very moreish. Even neat, in a wine glass it is very nice. I have asked Morrison’s to put 2 cases aside for me.
At £2.10 per 68cl bottle it is great value.
Also claimed it is rich in Vitamin C.

Bottle. Pitch black and absolutly no head. Moderate malty and licorice aroma. Strange powerfull light bitter licorice flavor. Average finish. Syruply palate. Exstremely strange but also nice experience. Closest thing to engine oil you can get.
