2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught Little head, yellowish rim; jet-black beer. Very little nose, just some liquorice-tinted malts. Liquorice in the taste again, but not the real sweet variety; slight sweetness and faintly smokey in the background. Finish is rubbery with intensified liquorice. Quite thin, ending slick. A bit thin for its aim, slightly disappointing, but no faults.
