2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from The Grove Huddersfield. Not expecting this to be super fresh as they were selling it off cheap. Black with dark brown edges and thick dark beige head. Its a decent schwarz not too sweet. Some ok malts. Its fine. Easy drinking and in fact what you could call mild.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost black; Toasty aroma - slight coffee; palate has dry, husky dark malts....then the problems start showing up. There is too much carbonation, and the body gets thin. As it warms, cardboardy flavours come out. Clearly, this sample has spent too much time in the distribution chain. The flavours are pretty good (like a cappucino & a peanut doughnut), though, so a fresh bottle would be worth drinking. I have ignored the flaws as best as I could in my rating.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Near black body with gray-brown head. Aroma is coffee, moderately sweet. Taste is sugared coffee, with cream even -- not as oversweetened as the Black Abbot (thank goodness), but still too sweet for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost completely black, but lets in a ruby-red flicker of light. Dense creamy head. Aroma is peppery, roasted and with some caramel. Low to medium carbonated. Taste is filled with caramel and roasted tones. Some smoke is in there as well, and so is a touch of final bitterness.
