3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
13th September 2009
Opaque black beer with a nose of dark chocolate. Palate is silky and a little dry. Rich unsweet dark chocolate, pretty full on. Espresso like bitterness. Not much else going on until the finish when a sliver of hop comes through. Okay but it’s bit one dimensional, really needs something to balance the bitter chocolate.
