Pours a nice dark black but with no head. Could be much better.
Weird aroma. I get a lot of almost cloying sweetness with a bare hint of roast and weird earthy, vegetal note.
WTH? It's sweet and sour. An overly sweet start with notes of butterscotch flows straight into a lactic punch to the face. Unfortunately off but it betrays poor sanitation and brewing skill. In fact, there is nothing "black" about this beer. No chocolate, no roast, nothing.
Medium-thick body with a lots of slickness on the tongue. Disappointing. The carbonation is moderate but doesn't help anything.
Impossible to drink as I want beer not sweet and sour vegetables.

Pours dark brown and somewhat vegemitey. Good creamy head was there but then dissipated fairly quickly to leave a sad-looking liquid behind.
Lots of wood-smoke aroma on the nose, with a slight tart fruitiness. Large dark oak character. Curious definitely, not all that pungent though.
Flavour is very smokey, like a spit-roast suckling pig. A lot of toasty flavours with a sour bent, hints of cherry and oak. Tastes a bit odd chilled and may actually be better warmed up a bit. Mouthfeel is fairly thin but goes down fairly smooth.
Definitely the better of the Bintara beers, more interesting and complex.

a - murky dark brown. good head, retention could improve with a little wheat.
s - malty and dark, coffee and dark malt smell, little hops detectable, very smooth smell. a very good hint of whats to come with the taste.
t - I must be honest I very much disliked this beer the first time i tried it on site at the brewery. It doesnt fit the style guidelines to well. After taking some home and trying them I find it a relaxing stout. Very smooth, high yeast and lower hop bitterness than normal. Enough dark malt to remain a stout but low on the hops and a little caramel? Very easy to drink. A tasty lazy stout after a long day.
m - very flat, could afford a little more carbonation. All the bintara brews seem to be low on the fizz. This does add to the smoothness of the beer. thick and full of body.
d - easy to drink but a little to smooth to drink alot of. Good for a couch beer. Wouldnt pair this with food. Bintara's best.

Deep, opaque black-brown. Strong, fluffy, ultimately filmy head leaves little lacing. Very viscous.
Wood smoky nose, quite heavily scented with rich dark malts. Hints of BBQ flavouring and pine resin. What a weird smell. Interesting, but weird.
Very smoky on the palate too. It's like a rauchbier. It almost tastes like drinking bacon. It ends quite astringent and sour. Is this what they were aiming for?? As it stands, it's very surprising, but rather interesting. Rather refreshing for a black.
This was the best of the Bintara range, but more because it had some interest than because it was an impressive beer in its own right.
