3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep purplish burgundy colour. No head. Aroma of black currant, peppery alcohol, pears, candyish malt. Fruit-first, moving towards a muscular alcohol finish. The malts - while clearly candyish - remain in the background and gracefully disassociated from the currant. Nicely balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark purple amber with very little head. Aroma of cassis, yeast, and sweet malt. Tastes tart, some hops, dark molasses notes, and quite boozy. Lingering currant & hop finish. Thin body and very low carb. Interesting beer, but again, overattenuated. Needs a bit of body & maybe a head.

(650ml bottle) Pours a thin tan webbing which disperses off the top of a deep mahogany body. Nose is mildly skunky that doesn’t come across in flavour. Tongue is mildly plum, red wine, tart currants and roasty malt. Average.
