A Very English Black Ale
Bad King John is black, bitter, and intense. Like the ruthless man it honors. Do not come here looking for subtlety!

Antzrhere (99) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Pours dark brown. Soft carbonation. Aroma of burnt toffee and fruity yeast esters. Taste is interesting but isnt particularly refined - slightly solventy. Plenty of roast, dark toffee, dark fruity yeast esters, some licorice. Not bad though, i think its unfiltered and theres a freshness thats rare with many commercial bottled beers. If you enjoy beers like McEwans Champion you will enjoy this

Great dark beer, complex flavors not to much for a 6% one to enjoy slowly.

MrTipple (3814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Dark, toasted malts, dark chocolate, medium roast filter coffee. Dark, clear brown, medium, frothy, beige head. Light sweet. More toasted malts, molasses, burnt caramel, chocolate and coffee, soft carbonation, medium body, light bitter and just a little bit sour finish. Decent enough, maybe a touch on the light side and lacking some complexity. Bottle from Sainsburys, Victoria.

Werckmeister (2473) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 21, 2016
0,5l bottle bought at a supermarket in Nitra. almost black color, small tan head. smells of licorice, cola, spices, light glueish notes, very light caramel. overall decent smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, bit roasty, spices, light bready notes, light glue notes, parfumy. finishes lightly to medium roasty with notes of licorice and some bread. overall decent, but a bit simple, also rather bready for a stout.

bjakk (727) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JUL 28, 2016
A gift from Oliver. Dark red, clear, with almost no foam. Mild aroma with a hint of caramel and alcohol. Sweet, malt, with mild burned sugar tones in the aftertaste. High in carbon and a bit watery.

Deep mahogany with a tight beige head, clear with a good steady bead. Light malt/spice aroma. Medium to full body, nice malty flavours with a spicy finish, citrus hoppy notes lurking in the background. Nice beer.
