Can’t believe this one slipped under the radar- assumed it was the same as the dark. Bottle from Crosspoint Tesco, Coventry. Handsome deep ruby appearing black with a slim beige cap. Nose butter, iron and black coffee. Rusted coffee flavour; heavily toasted Schwarz-like grain, burnt paper, charcoal, puffed rice. Thin but half decent.

Bottle, bb 31/07/14. Pours a very dark brown with a slight red edge. Aroma is a little herby and a little sweet choc. Medium body, medium carbonation. There's a slight veggie grassiness to it which is nice, then there's a little dark toffee, a bit of choc too, but the grass wood and bark provide a rather nice dryness. Good.
