Taste: this was the winner of Sainsbury's great British beer hunt a year or so ago. While the Williams brothers beer should have won. This was a strong runner up (out of the competition). It's a strong black ale. Malty, but it doesn't pack enough flavour for its 6% strength. I could do with something a bit more exciting here.
Appearance: Dark with a white ring floating on top. Crude knight drawings on bottle.
Would you buy 2? I have done.
Would you buy 4? I have, it's a good choice if all you have is Sainsbury's for ale.
Rating (out of 7): 5***** above average. Very gulpable.
