3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle, pours a very dark brown / black with a medium tan head. Aroma of cocoa powder, oats, rye and light roasted - the rye and cocoa are most prominent. Flavour brings out the rye above anything, with secondary notes of baker’s chocolate, some coffee and medium roasted malt. Full-bodied, very soft palate, with very harsh rye on the finish. Could be confused for a harsh black IPA, though the rye is in place of the hops. Quite solid, though harsh.
