12oz bottle pours black with a little tan head. Aroma is of malt. The taste is of malt and not much else. I can’t say I will never drink it again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tombyars (1429) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Purchased in Morrisons, Stevenston on the 20th February 2015. 330ml bottle poured into a chalice glass. Clear dark mahogany in colour with a thin pale buff head. Sweet malty aroma with a brief note of black cherry present. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt gives a moist maltloaf base with strong syrupy raisin fruit full in the mouth. There is a short hop prickle lurking in the aftertaste but this is very short lived. Finish is malty and vinous with sweet cherry bakewell tart undertones to it. I was quite surprised how much I actually enjoyed this, as it tasted more like an Alt than a Schwarzbier? At 99 pence - a bargain!

ARH (663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a tulip. The aroma is a dark berry and licorice combination with smoke and a light coffee and chocolate blend. The beer is dark and near opaque with a mahogany hue. It’s topped by a brown, soapy head with a medium soapy ring and good lace. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. The texture is oily and slick with a medium body and a light, fizzy carbonation. The beer is smokey with licorice and chocolate malt. It finishes smokey with a coffee and ash touch . It’s clean with only a light coffee aftertaste.

Dark limited head retention. Smells malty as fuck. Liquorice taste, rich but not lingering taste. Nice session I think. Smells caramel like toffee apples. Very drinkable
