3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge convention, 24/01/2015. Thanks to whomever brought it along. Aroma is decent nutty choc, praline, little veg. Not much hop on the nose. Clear mahogany brown coloured pour with a thin creamy head. Flavour is composed of nutty, harsh solvent, stale grains, astingent dark malts. Palate is semi-sweet, moderate carbonation. . Not a huge fan.

Despite its bland looking -almost no head, like a cola without gas- this beer reveals itself overwhelming, like a fist on the jaw: whisky, coffee, rhum, honey...and whisky again. Boozy, alcohol is just present in your head, not in your mouth. Dangerous, very dangerous. Liked a lot.

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!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Fruity. Hoppy. Dark malts. Taste is bitter, and sweet. Lots of chew. Long, bitter finish. A tad heavy, and heady.
