3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask; black, thin white head; smooth mouthfeel; low carbonation; coffee, lightly roasted malt, dark fruit, perhaps a little liquorice; quite dry, and very bitter; a hint of exotic hop fruit on the finish; whilst it isn’t especially thick, it is still a fairly complex beer; balanced and quite moreish.
