3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Northern Quarter, Manchester, consumed at home B/H Monday 4th May 2015 Black or pretty damn close to Black with a Guinness like creamy large head. Soft and smooth with some cocoa but with a tanginess and a whilst roasty and malty it is not heavy. There is a smokiness throughout but it is a gentle light smoked beer backed with a pleasant hoppy bite. A lovely beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Keg - I mostly got this because it was described as ’very smokey!’. It was not, but it was still fairly nice - really dark red with a rocky light brown frothy head. Good lacing and good retention. Aroma is lightly smokey, full of chocolate and with some hints of berries. Taste of roast malt, grassy hop and fruit followed by cocoa, smoke and light bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation.
