What they say: As you would expect this brew pours a dark black/brown with aromas of Coffee, Liquorice, roast & chocolate malts. On the tongue there's light roasted malt flavours, with a caramel sweetness and a dried fruit hoppiness.
Oh yum. With ales like this I could really get into black ales. Clearly the name and colour appealed to my dark side but I just loved the taste of this. Went back the next day I was looking forward to trying it again, but something else was on. A cracking pint.
