3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Dark brown, small ring of off-white head. Aroma is paint, pine, treacle, alcohol. Body is medium to light, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is just a big hit of alcohol up front, ’cold’ booziness, tangy, vodka, some sweet malts but nothing to cover the 13%. Woah.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
24th Jan 2015: bottle shared at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Slight haze to the dark body, on top a thin tanned head. The nose was roasted/toasted malts with chocolate hints and dark fruitiness, some hops in there too. The taste similar in nature to the aromas, malts first and foremost with a bitter chocolate follow up. Good alcohol kick within the brew, heavy but nice!

Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Fruity. Hoppy. Dark malts. Taste is bitter, and sweet. Lots of chew. Long, bitter finish. A tad heavy, and heady.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn, (purchased directly from shop 27th Dec’) consumed at Lynn & Barrys, Merton, Oxon, Wednesday 31st December 2014 Pours dark, dark brown with slim creamy head. Quite potent, in fact lets no bugger about its pretty boozy. Heavy cloying bitterness a little harsh on the edges, its almost like a Black IPA/Barley wine combo’. An interesting beer but I guess the strength ensured this was never quite gonna be as expected. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
