330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Reddish/brown, perfectly clear with a medium/thin off-white head. Slight hint of roasted malt in the sweetish malty aroma. Smooth and slightly sweet at first there’s a bitter, malty finish. Not bad, I’ll give it another go. beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 Much better cool than cold. Dark chocolate brown pour with stouty creamy beige head. Nice malty chocolate/liquorice flavours, soft on palate. Still not sure if I like this style as without the stout mouthfeel the flavours feel somehow ’wrong’, but enjoyable anyway, and actually very palatable served cool rather than lager-cold. pretz (3) - ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2007 does not count
Different to what I’d expected from a dark lager. The colour is very dark with little carbonation, almost coca-colaish in appearance.
Very complex taste, similar to coffee or dark chocolate. Enjoyed this quite a bit, although it is not what I’d expected! Another example of a good beer from this sainsbury’s range, I really liked their wheat beer that they don’t seem to do anymore.
