3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from the Home Brew Shop, Aldershot. Pours pitch black with a tight tan head; rich, sweet, chocolate aroma; smooth and soft in the mouth, sweet and fruity to start then with a burst of sharply bitter hops before a sweet, lactic, milk chocolate finish with underlying nutty roasted malts and an echo of the hops. Rather good, but too sweet for my taste.
