3.66/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Burger Meats Bun, Glasgow (£3.90 for 330ml Bottle):
Black with a thin lacing on top acting as a head that is bubbly and turns to a soapy lacing almost instantly.
Light malts and some floral notes along with a touch of caramel and some sweet sugars too. There is a background smell of various fruits and is quite refreshing on the nose.
Malty with some sweetness coming through from both the caramel and some sugar from the background fruits. The beer has a little bitterness to it and touches of hops and grapefruit too.
Smooth with a good balance, this beer is quite sweet and that works well complimenting the bitterness; a refreshing and easy to drink beer.
Nice stuff & surprisingly refreshing for a dark beer, with an nice amount of bitterness and plenty of sweet, malty flavours to even things out. Whilst not a stand out, this one was definitely a beer worth trying and one I'll be on the lookout for again.

Black with russet highlights and a steady tan head that fades fast but trails.
Ash, blackberry, and caramelized sugar on the nose.
Char, sweet oily espresso, and dark caramel then some pine and melon hops.
Plum spice finish and tightening gooseberry linger.
Medium verging on light, fizzy, some cling.
More black than IPA; somehow manages to bury a big hops like NS under roast. Also doesn't really have the body to support all the flavor. As good as Fyne is, something seemed forced about this series (there's a Blonde at the same ABV) and it turns out to be true.
Not their best.
