3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a dark black colour with a short lived white head.
Smells very dark and burnt from the malts.
Tastes similar, watery but a dark burnt malty taste, with a vague hop bitterness on the finish. Fairly messy too.
Overall a decent quaffable, but slightly messy.
