3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit like a fast ball delivery, this. The front and middle are gone in a silky flash and *bang!* the finish crashes in with roasted and burnt bitterness, chalky coffee, vanilla, creamy oats and a very slight sour green fruit. The video referee is called in allowing you to reconstruct the front and middle in slo-mo. Very quaffable. Good level of bitterness. Quite boring at first, but quite endearing after the first 1/3 of a pint.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours darn brown with a creamy head that slowly disappears. Body is moderate and oily with low carbonation. Aroma is fairly mild and taste is coffee, molasses and a bit of tobacco smoke. Easy drinking but nothing exceptional

Pours black with a light tan head.
Nose shows dry roasted malt, cocoa and oatmeal.
Very roasty flavours, quite dry. More oatmeal but no really coffee or chocolate, just dry roast. Turns out quite moreish though.
Lovely creamy carbonation and body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of mocha, Indian sweetmeats - fudge, cardamom, anise, vanilla - licorice. Medium bodied, a little oaty silkiness. A little light on the roasted flavours and not really rich, but pleasantly earthy.

On tap at Scratch Bar as part of the Weekend of Darkness event 190714. Dense black colour with a small beige head. Aromas of vanilla and toffee, full mouthfeel and a long finish make this beer a treat to drink.
