11th December 2012
The 0-65 tasting. Four guys, fourteen beers, average abv 12.9%, 65 mins! Clear dark red - amber beer. Fluffy pale tan head. Smooth palate, a little soft. Sweetish dark malt - light. Dark fruits underneath, slightly sour. Smooth and soft and a little unusual. Not bad in it’s own right, pretty weak as a Black IPA.
