On tap at Zero Degrees, Reading, stated ABV 4.6%. Pitch black with a ring of beige head, and high carbonation; aroma of dull chocolate malts; dry and spritzy in the mouth with a good chocolate malt flavour; soft and sweet to finish with an underlying bitterness. Rather light and inconsequential overall.
On tap at Zerodegrees Cardiff. Almost black coloured, small off-white head, mild roasty nose. Mild roasted malt, light bready, some caramel and weak hoppy with notes of coffee and touch of wood. Average and boring brew. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2017

Hazy dark brown color, tan head. Malty, roasted, herbal taste. Roasted aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Roasted, mineral scent.
Reading. Flight. 01/11/16. Chocolate coffee aroma, but vague. Dark brown. Red hued in the light. No head. Sour. Yeasty. Some bitterness. Light bodied. Not great. Scopey (14708) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Keg at Zerodegrees Blackheath. It pours hazy/murky deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, plenty of dirty sulphur, burnt egg sandwich, sweet roast, manure, rivita and burnt toast. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy roast, rivita, cocoa powder, slight stickiness, pepper and weak coffee grounds with a dry, toasted finish. Light - medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Wow that aroma is very off-putting. Taste is better, but still not great. A poorly executed beer for sure. Alexi91 (437) - Bristol/Romsey, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Origin: Tap. Vessel: Tumbler. Supplier: Zero Degrees (Bristol). Very little nose but heavy hit of roasted malts when tasted. Gives way to rising smokiness.

Pours quite dark with little tan head. Roasty, caramel, liquorice aromas. Taste follows the nose. Nice and tasty dunkel.
Aroma: roasted malts, grain, chocolate. Appearance: black, small, creamy, beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malty sweets coming up quickly, grains and toasted malts again, lively carbonation. Overall: decent Dunkel, quite well-balanced. Pint at Zerodegrees, Blackheath. undercurrent25 (2142) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Pours a black colour, taste is of roast malts and liqourice, smokey on the palate Beese (2733) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Draught at the Reading Zerodegrees Brewpub on 22 March 2014. Poured a dark brown, with a halo of rocky, beige head. If I didn’t know better, I would have assumed that this was a pint of cola. Aroma of burnt sugar, toasted malt and rye bread. Dark malt flavours, with notes of brown sugar and chewy grain. Finish was bread, liquorice and grassy hop. Definitely the best of their beers that I tried.
