Bottle shared by Jason, no label but this was a black witbier (Black Wit-dow perhaps?) that they had produced at some point for Project X so I'll assume that this is the same beer. 650ml into a tulip.

Dark brown, more chestnut in colour closer to the edges. Cream coloured head that fizzles away quickly. Nose has darker malt notes, some hazelnut, hint of roast character. Not alot of wit to be found. Light roast and dark malt on the palate, some grain, slightly acidity, light fruit, wheat and a suggestion of chocolate. Body is pretty think and watery in character. Thin feel but a smooth finish, medium carbonation. Drinkable but leaves quite a bit to be desired.

On tap at ProjectX at The Rhino. Creamy sessionable beer. Wit aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Sasaparlla. Hits the style. Licorice and mollasses in the finish. 15 IBU and the flavours of the ingredients above takes ones mind off hops. Blackish body with but little head.
