Revolutions Brewing Co. Dominion (5%)

My old mates at Revolutions, and they are old mates in both senses of the term, have had a very nice rebranding and have strayed sticking some of heir beer in cans.
This, their Black Lager, sent me me via BrewChap, is really rather good.
It pours an inky black with a little cappuccino head and smells of stone fruits and coffee.
Taking a swig you find sticky damson jam and, a pot of fresh coffee, a dark chocolate bitterness and lots of treacle tart sweetness.
This is tempered by some nice earthy spiced pumpernickel from the rye and a little kiss of brittle hedgerow hoppy greenery in the bitter finish.
Marvellous.
