Taste: Nice strong malts! Kind of sweet tasting as well as bitter. Bittersweet? Is this a stout? Porter? Or Dark Mild? Maybe the last.... What an odd review. Oh well. It's delicious.
Appearance: It would be pretty difficult to argue with a label like that. A ghost stallion! The writing reminds me of the clink prison back home. Ale looks spookily black.
Would you buy 2? I would usually. But I'm just having one before leaving.
Would you buy 4? I see no reason why you wouldn't!
Rating (out of 7): 5***** thank goodness for ale!
