COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
The beer was very deliberately brewed to have an alcohol content of 6.66%. A five pointed grist - Maris Otter Pale Ale malt, Malted Wheat, Chocolate Malt, Roast Barley and Cereal... with a wickedly-secret combination of hops....Black Mass has the flavour of dark fruits, bitter chocolate and liquorice with a bitter coffee, warm, alcoholic finish. Decadent. Black as sin.

ManVsBeer (10927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Practically black with a small creamy off-white head. Strong and not as stout-like as you might want it to be with a small roasted nose, but a more hoppy taste with a berry sweetness in its aroma and taste.
