Nose
Malt and liquorice, with coffee taking over.
Palate
Bittersweet, with faint caramel and liquorice flavours and a dry, dark maltiness that becomes almost stringent. Spicy alcohol notes provide a little warmth.
Finish
Well-roasted coffee beans. Dry.
Comment
Crisp but somewhat characterless for a black beer. Not unpleasant by any means but it promises more than it delivers.
