Presentation: Sampled at the Royal Oak, Crick on the way back from the annual Wakefield CAMRA Belgium trip. Another recently formed Brewery; the Potbelly Beijing Black is listed at 4.4% ABV on the very colorful Pumpclip. Named after a breed of Pig, allegedly.
Appearance: Dark black body, which is a deep clear mahogany when held to the light. Tan colored head is reasonable and the conditioning is finely dissolved. Looks great and stronger than it is.
Nose: Roasted aromas, earthy soil and some burnt wood mix with dark chocolate in the finish.
Taste: Toasted malts with a dark chocolate quality .Dry middle with some hops to add to the bitterness. Smoked malt in the finish. Incredibly clean and unfettered, this brew is a veritable pleasure to sup.
Mouthfeel: Medium strength body with a light make-up that belies its stated alcohol. This just adds to the fact that a few pints of this one may creep up on you though.
Drinkability: Doesnt quite feel like a 4.4% brew, more like say 3.6%, but the slake thirst factor is very high and it is a very simple brew to sink. I could manage a few of these with little hindrance.
Overall: Felt like a mix between a Schwarz Lager and an English Dark Mild Ale, very tasty stuff and incredibly quaffable I have to say. Something different and a great change of pace.
Serving type: cask
