Fin (7409) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle directly from Siren Brewery, Finchampstead, Berkshire, 20th November 2013, consumed at home Saturday 21st December 2013 This is a really thick and as the name suggests an evil looking beer. Black in colour and looking like a prehistoric tar pit with no head and leaving an oily residude on the glass. crikey it looks scary! Superb in the mouth, this tastes indulgent, chocolate and with swirls of coffee cream it is very thick and fullsome in the mouth. The espresso coffee really adds to this. I also get a little liquorice, it really is wonderful, smooth, powerful (but not boozy) rich and majestic. Loved this. A8 A4 T9 P5 Ov16 4.2
