Batemans - Dark Lord

WP_20160328_14_14_57_ProWhat they say: “A dark, mahogany beer with a rich, nutty flavour and spicy bittersweet finish.”

Anyone who knows me, will know of my interest in all things noir - I’m not called the Blogger in Black for nothing - so of course this pump clip piqued my interest.

But it was also a very tasty beer -  beautifully dark in colour and a taste that seems to bridge the gap between bitters and porters. I liked this very much, but sadly it’s only a seasonal. 4.4% A.B.V.
