3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
City arms cardiff. Beautiful creamy brown/tan head atop an opaque and intensely dark brown beer. Could pass for black under dim light. Very good head retention (poured with a sparked on, which, being a mild, I was happy to tolerate for once). Quite a fresh aroma of very light grassy hops and chocolate. Smells like highly caramelised malts. A whiff of treacle perhaps. Very low hop aroma but the faintest touch of wet grass and fruity berries. Slightly sweet taste, rounded and smooth. Goes down with a soft chocolate impression which fades into a finish that is short lived but the right combination of clean and cloying in the right amounts. Very pleasantly surprised with this beer. Very drinkable. Suffers from bein a little thin and being a little too heavy on winey esters (not that they’re exactly prominent, though). Good job from a brewery whose other beers I would certainly not qualify as a big fan of
