Unicorn Black is delicious, and pleasantly thrist-quenching for a stout.
It poured a dark brownish black in the glass, with a slight sugary brown head.
Aromas of chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, and roasted malt.
I thought it had quite a strong flavour of black liquorice, and a touch of roasted malt, coffee, and dark red fruits. I really liked the strong liquorice taste.
It had a perfect balance of sweetness, and a bitter slightly citrus flavour to the finish.
Mr.R also thought this was a very decent stout, and we'll definitely be buying this brew again in the future.
From the label -
A modern twist on an aged old recipe, Unicorn Black is a dark, mysterious, ebony coloured stout with a distinct aroma of roasted malt and chocolate.
Rich, full bodied and deeply satisfying, Unicorn Black delivers a palate of roasted coffee and peppery hops leaving a robust after bitterness. It is perfectly balanced with a hint of sweetness.
Hope variety, Goldings.
Unicorn Black from Robinsons Brewery is so good I felt it deserved to have two photos on this blogpost - even though they are fairly similar to each other.
I was too preoccupied enjoying the beer to spend time taking photos.
