3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery : virtually pitch black with a lingering white head - strong and fairly intense flavour of coffee and a hint of bitterness. Really quite similar to the Skullcrusher also available by Merchant House. Not an original flavour but a satisfying beer on the whole.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A simplistic black with a white head. The aroma is weak but smells a bit burned. The malts were over roasted, i.e. burned. There was no depth or complexity and the aftertaste was a bit of charred.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark with a nice head that stays for a while. Weak aroma. Taste of hops, bitter stout flavour and coffee. Doesn’t go down as smooth as some. Solid beer, nothing unpleasant about it at all.

Deep black pour with a thin off-white head. The aroma is quite roasty. A touch of light molasses and some dark fruit. A bit of light cocoa and a little bit of roast. Soft palate and decently balanced. A bit of dustiness as well. Some soft toast and cocoa as well.
