Black beer, thin head. Rich malt, a dash of fruit, some chocolate and caramel in the aroma. Flavour has the same qualities but more subtly, and you have to really let it sit in your mouth to get it because the flavours arent that strong. It smells amazing and at first sip I thought it tasted weak but when you really take the time to savour it it starts to work. Im marking it down slightly for it seeming to require that effort because it should be a deep, rich, amazing beer.

330 ml can, from Thirsty, Cambridge
Looks good enough. But disappointing otherwise - this is trying to be a black IPA and failing - too harsh. Dirty in the aroma and taste both.

Tasting glass draft @ Billies Bier Kaftaria. Black, little tanned head. Nose is strange, roasted pumpkin pits, low burned sunflower seeds, roasted licorice, artificial chocolate & some thin artificial chocolate flavoring. Body is far too weak to carry it, feels too light empty, strange taste, roasted pumpkin pits, almond milk, cheap chocolate, herbal roast, burned seats, artificial chocolate. Weird, doesnt entirely appeal to me.
