One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Robinsons Unicorn Black

This could easily be mistaken for a Guinness on pouring with a thick creamy beige head and a dark black body.  It will inevitably be compared with Guinness and I couldn't help myself comparing the two.

It doesn't have a strong aroma but I would say it smells slightly fruity, however, the taste is one of dark chocolate and lightly roasted coffee beans.  It's so very moreish with a creamy coffee aftertaste and with a thinner consistency than Guinness, I'd say it's something of a Guinness Light.

The head is absolutely amazing for a bottle poured stout - so thick and robust, remaining until the last drop.  Ale be Seeing you Again, Unicorn Black.

I purchased this from B&M for the bargainous price of £1.39.

Brewed by Robinsons Unicorn Brewery, Stockport, Cheshire
4.1% ABV
