Impression: There weren’t many dark beers to be found in the camp shops of Kruger so I was very happy to find this one. It’s one of my wife’s favorite styles but I was leery about getting two of anything not previously tested. Well, it poured like the black beauty we’d hoped for and tasted even better.  It would have been more suited to a cooler evening but I still wished I’d got two bottles. So, had my wife.

How about another South African craft beer?
