The Black Knight is not for the faint hearted. This is an unapologetically malt-driven beer. Made from the same Northumberland and Yorkshire malts as the King Henry, but with the addition of highly kilned, unmalted barley from Scotland which gives the Black Knight its characteristic, deep black colour and roast coffee aroma. Horizon and Centennial hops from America balance some of the sweet malt character, but the roast, almost burnt coffee aroma dominates the nose.  The Black Knight has a silky smooth mouth-feel and, while coffee is the initial taste, dark chocolate flavours are also apparent as well as some citrus from the American hops. At 7.4% ABV it might be just the thing to give you the courage you need before heading into battle.
