3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Martin who bought me this as part of my Best Man/his wedding beer bag. Came from Bottle Shop in Canterbury. Black as black with no head. Even swirling it, I’m getting no head. Tarry, roasty, liquorice, molasses aroma. There’s a smoked thing that is rather good. Flavour is a lot of molasses, fig and prune. Lots of chocolate. As good as Dark Horizon? No. As good as Black? Definitely no. Good idea, good collab. It’s interesting, and yes gave me enjoyment. Some heat from the alcohol. Interesting and drinkable, but maybe not the best sum of the parts.

Black colour with brown foam. You cant really feel that the beer is 17,2 percent. A lot sweeter than expected.

33cl bottle from ZlyCasy Prague
Pours opaque black with a very tiny head.
The nose is a massive attack of liquorice, coffee, chocolate and some vanilla.
The taste has liquorice again and not much else, but the note is massive. Overall, very good beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled in 2013, 15.2%. Best looking beer ive seen in a while. Alcohol taste has calmed with aged, instead just adds to the potent flavours.
