Blackfriar

Very nice looker, with a deep, dense reddish brown body, good fluffy head and some sticky lacing.

Aroma and initial taste promise much malt, and you do get some, but not to the extent that I was expecting. Then another surprise – a really hoppy, fairly short, but very, very bitter kick in the finish. I didn’t really enjoy that little unexpected moment, and I thought that it served to cause the beer to be slightly unbalanced.

Mouthfeel is good, with a little slick, oily feeling, but that unusual bitter suddeness dealt this brew a fatal blow with me.
