2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half-pint by gravicask, shared with Finn at NWAF ’13. Clear rosewood coloured body. Naked surface. Earthy malts to the nose with hints of liquorice. Dark malty taste with a peaty touch. Short-lived roasted bitter finish. Decent enough considering the low abv (Manchester, 23.01.2013).
Fairly light black beer, very enjoyable. Would like to try the bottle version too. theprof (1242) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2017

On cask at the Watford Beer Festival, pours a very dark brown with orange highlights and a tan head. The smell is roasted dark malt, mild licorice. The taste is rich roasted malt, licorice with a dry ending. Light in body with mild carbonation. A treat! likeatrainwreck (572) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Black with tan head. Nice looking beer. Malty, slightly sweet, chocolate... very easy drinking. Good mild. BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
8th April 2015: hand-pulled pint in the Trafalgar, Ramsey IoM. Black body with a good tanned topping. Malty from the start, it has a solid backbone of chocolate maltiness in the aroma which carries on into the taste, mildly bitter in the finish and almost semi-sweet initially. I liked it, the huge swan neck it was pulled through gave it a good swirl around and once settled it looked a picture.
